Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Place the rice, coconut water, a splash of water, a drizzle of olive oil, and a pinch of salt into a pot. Heat until it reaches a rolling boil; then turn down the heat to a gentle simmer, keeping it covered, and let it cook until all the liquid has been soaked up, which should take around 15 minutes. Remember to keep the lid on during the entire cooking process. Once done, use a fork to gently separate the grains.

Notes

  • – Using coconut water instead of regular water adds a unique flavor to the rice without overwhelming it.
    – Ensure the rice is thoroughly rinsed to prevent clumping and achieve a fluffy texture.
    – Leftover rice can be refrigerated for up to 5 days.

Can I use brown rice instead of white rice?

Is it necessary to rinse the rice before cooking?

Yes, rinsing the rice helps to remove excess starch, which results in fluffier rice.

Can I add coconut milk for a creamier texture?
