Coconut Rick

I consider myself a decent cook, but I have never mastered cooking rice (with the exception of paella). Either burnt, gloppy, uncooked, and bizarre combinations of all three. But I recently took a gamble and tried microwaving my coconut rice. Both the Hubby and I love coconut rice and it was always a struggle to get that perfect pot.

Folks! This is a game changer! For those of you who don’t have a rice cooker or don’t want to buy another appliance, this is the way to go! I’ve made coconut rice a few times now and each time it comes out fluffy and perfect.

Now that I’ve mastered coconut rice, now it’s time to try and make that perfect Thai green curry!
