This was very good. It had just the perfect flavor of coconut without overpowering the rice. However, I used coconut milk instead of coconut water and it turned out perfect. I think I'm going to make this all the time now instead of regular rice. Yummy!!!
Easy, creamy and rich. I never have had coconut rice. This is sooooo good! Everyone will LOVE this great spin on everyday rice.
the recipe, so ok nothing to jump for. You always have to make sure that you are doing the recipe really well or it will be soggy
I am not a big fan of white rice, however, this was suprisingly delicious. It is very easy to make which I truly appreciate. My 9 year old twins who are reluctant to try different foods, really loved this too. They want me to make it again soon.
Excellent recipe. The texture and taste are great and so easy and quick to make. My family loved it. We have it for breakfast.
IN ORDER TO GET FAMILY MEMBERS TO EAT MORE RICE, I AM CONSTANTLY TRYING NEW AND DIFFERENT RECIPES. THIS ONE WAS A HIT WITH MY FAMILY, ESPECIALLY WHEN I ALTERNATED LIME-HERB GRILLED SHRIMP TO THE MEAL PLATTER. SO GLAD IT WAS AVAILABLE FOR ME TO TRY. NEXT TIME I PLAN TO PAIR IT WITH GRILLED SALMON AND SAUTEED SPINACH. THIS A WINNER.
It was different , very easy to make. But not too crazy on it. We prefer southern style.
