Coconut Garlic Rice

When we want rice as a side dish, this is our go-to recipe. It’s so delicious and savory. This dish is one of the main reasons why I like to make Coconut Milk in bulk. I always want to ensure that I have plenty on hand so that I can whip this up.

Using homemade coconut milk is ideal, but if you don’t have any then try to find the best quality canned version you can, preferably organic and with the least amount of additives.

Coconut Garlic Rice


  • 1.5 cups Jasmine Rice (dry)
  • 1.5 cups Coconut Milk (homemade is best, or use one 15oz store-bought can)
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 3/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 cup Water, filtered


  1. Rinse the starch off the rice by placing it in a pot and adding enough water to cover it by a couple inches. Take your hand and swish the rice around. Pour off the cloudy water, being careful not to lose the rice. Repeat 2-3 more times.
  2. Add rest of ingredients to pot with rice and stir.
  3. Place a lid on pot and bring to a full boil over high heat. Once the rice reaches a full boil, turn the heat down to the lowest setting. Let rice simmer for 30 minutes. Remove pot from heat and allow it to rest for 15 minutes without removing lid.
  4. Remove lid and fluff with a fork.

We had the Coconut Garlic Rice with Moroccan Chicken and a salad.
