PREP, COOK, TOTAL TIME
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4 to 6
2 tablespoons LouAna Coconut Oil or LouAna Organic Coconut Oil
1 cup jasmine rice, well rinsed
1 1/2 cup water
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 14 ounce can coconut milk
2 to 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Toasted coconut (optional)
Fresh berries (optional)
In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add the coconut oil and the rinsed rice. Cook, stirring occasionally, until much of the rice is toasted golden brown, using a spatula to scrape it off the bottom if it sticks. Now, add water and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer and cover, cooking rice for 10 to 12 minutes until all water is absorbed.
Add coconut milk, brown sugar and cinnamon and cook over low heat for 5 minutes, until flavors are combined.
Serve warm or chilled with fresh berries and toasted coconut, if you wish.
