When I first heard of Coconut rice I was a little skeptical. This just didn’t seem like a good flavor combo to me but boy was I wrong.

The addition of the coconut milk to cook the rice in (instead of broth or water) makes the rice super flavorful and creamy too.

A friend suggested we add the lime zest at the end and boy was she right. When pared with my Healthier version of Mongolian Beef, this rice was gobbled up by adults and kiddos alike.

Do you have to use an Instant Pot?

No you don’t BUT an Instant Pot makes cooking rice a breeze. I’m not a huge kitchen gadget person but an Instant Pot has definitely won me over.

To make this recipe on the stovetop you would use the same ingredients just bring the coconut milk, water and rice to a simmer and cook, lid on – on low to medium heat until the liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.
