Coconut isn't just for piña coladas, coconut cream pie, coconut cheesecake, coconut crack bars or coconut pudding. Flaked coconut and coconut milk can be used in savory dishes, too, like this easy brown coconut rice recipe. It's so flavorful!

This easy coconut brown rice recipe uses coconut oil, shredded coconut and coconut milk. That's a lot of coconut flavor packed into one easy rice side dish recipe!

Here's how to make it:

  1. Heat the oil in a sauté pan. Add the shallots and cook until they begin to brown, about 5 minutes. 
  2. Add the coconut and cook about 2 to 3 more minutes.
  3. Add the rice and cook, stirring, 1 minute. 
  4. Pour in the coconut milk and water. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and cook until liquid has absorbed and rice is tender, about 40 minutes. Turn off the heat and let it sit about 5 minutes before fluffing with a fork.

Oh, yum! I Had coconut rice yesterday with salmon. So good. It was made with white rice. I like the idea of using brown rice better.

What a cool recipe.

I tried this tonight--well, more or less.... (Far it from me to actually follow a recipe exactly....) I used wild rice instead of brown, olive oil (I had) instead of coconut oil (I didn't), onion (I had) instead of shallots (I didn't), and had some rotisserie chicken I needed to use up so I dumped that in after the rice had cooked. Pretty tasty!
