Easy Coconut Rice Video

Easy Coconut Rice from Karista's Kitchen

I’ve been making this easy coconut rice for years. It goes with just about everything.

I pair it with my Hawaiian Slow Roasted Pork, marinated pork tenderloin that I throw on the grill with some pineapple, grilled or roasted chicken breast, stir fry’s, miso sake roasted fish, grilled or roasted veggies and sometimes I make it just to eat with my nori.

This is the ultimate and easiest side dish for a busy weeknight, weekend barbecues or slow cooked roasts.

Because this easy coconut rice is one of my most pinned recipes on Pinterest, I thought I should post a video of how easy it is. So I had one made! Here’s the video and I’ll post it on my Facebook and Instagram pages as well.

Enjoy this Easy Coconut Rice and let me know how you like it.

Delicious Wishes and Loads of Love,


Easy Coconut Rice

Serving Size: 4

Easy Coconut Rice


  • ¾ cup canned coconut milk (not light or low-fat)
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 cup Jasmine or Basmati rice
  • Pinch of salt


  • Prepare the coconut rice by combining the coconut milk, rice, water and pinch of salt in a saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring occasionally so the rice doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • Then turn down the heat to low, cover and simmer for 15-18 minutes, or until the rice is tender.
  • Fluff with a fork and keep it covered until ready to serve.

    Risotto is true comfort food.  Just the act of preparing risotto feels comforting, soothing somehow.  Maybe it’s because when I make risotto I like to turn on old Italian music and channel my inner Italian; or maybe it simply reminds me of time spent in Italy with the most wonderful and delightful people.

    Although risotto feels like comfort food, it also feels lush.  A bit decadent and a bit indulgent.  That could be another reason I love preparing risotto for my family – tossing in and adding seasonal ingredients like roasted pumpkin to create an even greater indulgent experience.

    If you’ve never prepared risotto or you’ve prepared it and it didn’t quite turn out the way you anticipated, you are going to love this Roasted Pumpkin Risotto post.  I’ve created this post for the October issue of  VRAI Magazine.  Head on over and check out this easy and fun pictorial as well as all the fabulous articles about lifestyle, travel, DIY, fashion and more food!  Click HERE for the recipe.
