Easy Fragrant Coconut Ginger Rice Recipe Smells Heavenly

Coconut milk is one of my favorite ingredients. I love how it adds creaminess and keeps food dairy-free. This easy coconut ginger rice recipe is easy, creamy and has aromatic Asian flavors.

Serve this ginger coconut recipe recipe with chicken, seafood, pork or beef. I served it with sticky orange baked chicken. Yum!
