4-Ingredient Coconut Rice Recipe: Healthy Coconut Brown Rice Recipe Is the New Trendy Side Dish

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!

Cuisine: American/Indian/African
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
Servings: 4


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.
