  • 1.5 cups of uncooked Jasmine Rice (brown or white), rinsed
  • 1 can of coconut milk (regular, not lite)

  1. Place jasmine rice in a fine mesh sieve and rinse under cold water until water runs clean. Drain well.
  2. Heat coconut milk and water in a medium non-stick saucepan set over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, season with salt to taste, add butter/oil and rice and bring to a simmer.
  3. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until water has been absorbed, about 17- 20 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and let rest covered for 5-10 minutes. Uncover, fluff with a fork and serve warm.
  5. Garnish with Hamama Cilantro Microgreens & chopped green onions. Add toasted unsweetened coconut, sesame seeds, or slivered almonds if desired. You can also mix in fresh or dried tropical fruit, such as mango or pineapple!
