    If I wanted to make this recipe with brown rice would I need to add more than just the 13oz of coconut milk? Thank you!

      Hi Smoki,

      I haven’t made the switch to brown rice (yet), so I’m not completely familiar with the rice/liquid ratio. The basic ratio for jasmine is 1c rice to 1.5 cups water, although the extra ounce helps with the creaminess. I would recommend substituting the same amount of coconut milk for the appropriate liquid called for in brown rice. If it’s too much, it’ll just be creamy (and still yum-o). If it’s not enough, you can add coconut water or plain water for additional moisture. Best of luck, and let us know how it turns out! ~Tiffany

    I am new to your blog, but am loving what I have seen so far. We are trying to cut our grocery budget, so your blog will be helpful, I am sure.

    One question, though. Maybe I am misreading this recipe for coconut rice. Am I understanding correctly that you start with raw rice and only steam it for 5 minutes? I usually steam rice for 22 minutes. Could this be a mistake or is this a “quick cook” rice?

    Thank you very much. This sounds delicious and I would really like to try it out.
