This Easy Coconut Lime Rice is the perfect side dish for all your favourite Asian-style meals! Make it in under 20 minutes with only a few simple ingredients!
Add the rice, coconut milk, water, salt, lime juice and lime zest (if using) to your rice cooker. Stir to combine.
Place the lid on and set to cook. When the rice cooker lets you know the rice is done (it will switch from COOK to KEEP WARM), fluff with a fork and serve with a sprinkling of fresh parsley for garnish, if desired.
Add the rice, coconut milk, water, salt, lime juice and lime zest to a medium pot over medium heat. Stir well to combine.
Cook over medium heat for about 13-15 minutes, or until it appears all the liquid has absorbed.
Remove the pot from the heat and let stand for about 10 minutes with the lid on.
Fluff with a fork and serve.
Be sure to use canned coconut milk for this recipe as it contains the solid coconut cream and coconut water. The coconut cream brings the intense coconut flavour, so using a thin, low fat coconut beverage will not work for this recipe.
