Foolproof Coconut Rice (GF Vegan)

I'm one of those people that loves a plain bowl of basmati rice, but my parents really enjoy when it's flavored so I made this recipe with some leftover coconut milk. It was a hit!

If you want less starchy or non-sticky rice, the technique used here will produce perfectly separate rice grains.

Let's dive in with love!

Serves: 2-3 | Time: 45 minutes

1 cup Basmati Rice
1 cup Coconut Milk
3/4 cup Veggie Broth
1.5 tsp Coconut Sugar
Dash Cayenne (optional)

In a pot, add the coconut milk and veggie broth. Light or full fat coconut milk should work for this recipe.
Rinse and scrub your rice in warm water for a minute or two. Strain and shake off excess water. Add to the pot, stir and let soak for 20 minutes.
Stir your sugar and spice into the rice. Turn the heat to high and bring to a simmer (cover to quicken this process). When simmering, turn the heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, turn off the heat and let the rice sit for 10 minutes. Do NOT remove the lid. The steam will finish cooking your rice and make it super fluffy.
After 10 minutes, remove the lid and stir your rice. Holy cow! The coconut milk makes it almost "buttery."
