  • 1 cup white jasmine rice uncooked
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 slices ginger root
  • 1 cinnamon stick optional


  • Rinse the rice until water runs clear.
  • Add all ingredients to a medium saucepan, stir to combine.  Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer until liquid is absorbed, 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove the ginger slices and cinnamon stick, fluff rice with a fork and serve.


Recipe can be made with white or brown jasmine rice.  If using brown jasmine rice, follow cooking time instructions on packaging, as it will take longer than white rice.  The coconut flavor is also more subtle with brown rice and stronger with white rice.
