Some of my favorite flavor profiles are Thai. When I decided to make a little rice to go along with my Pad Thai Albacore Tuna Burgers (recipe is on this page: just scroll down a bit), I wanted to bump up the flavor of the rice.
This is easy to do with ANY rice dish! When it calls for water, just replace that with some other yummy liquid like chicken or beef stock. In this particular recipe, I wanted to use coconut milk. Make sure to get the low fat coconut milk!
Coconut-Cilantro Basmati Rice
1 can low fat coconut milk (2 cups)
1 cup rice
1 tbsp. minced garlic
1 tbsp. minced fresh ginger
4-5 tbsp. fresh chopped cilantro
tbsp. sesame oil
salt and pepper
Heat the sesame oil in a soup pot, then when it's hot add the fresh ginger and garlic. Then add the rice. Stir it around the pan and let it soak up all of that yummy flavor! Add a little salt and pepper.
Now add the coconut milk. Let it come to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and let cook for 15 minutes with lid on.
Remove from the heat and let the rice sit for 5 minutes.
Add the cilantro and fluff the rice!
I served the Coconut-Cilantro Rice with Asian Coleslaw and the Albacore Tuna Burger I mentioned earlier. Both recipes can be found here on my blog by scrolling down.
