Ingredients

  • 1 cup white jasmine rice
  • 2 cups full fat coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 cup packed cilantro, roughly chopped
  • salt, to taste

Instructions

Stove Top Coconut Cilantro Lime Rice

  • Rinse rice through running water a few times. I used a nut milk bag.
  • Combine rice, coconut milk, and salt in a saucepan. Cover with a lid and bring to a boil. Remove the lid and reduce heat to medium-low, and let simmer for 15-20 minutes or until desired doneness. 15 minutes rice will be more al dente and creamier, 20 minuets the rice will be softer and the liquid fully absorbed.
  • Stir in lime juice and cilantro. Enjoy!

Instant Pot Coconut Cilantro Lime Rice

  • Rinse rice through running water a few times. I used a nut milk bag.
  • Combine rice, coconut milk, and salt in Instant Pot. Close lid and make sure it is locked and valve is set to sealed. Set to manual mode for 5 minutes. Let pressure release naturally for 10 minutes and then do a quick release for remaining pressure.
  • Stir in lime juice and cilantro. Enjoy!
