Arroz Con Coco Blanco/Coconut Rice


This coconut rice recipe comes from Secrets of Columbian Cooking. It was delicious! I had no idea Columbian cuisine used coconut milk. We made an Asian flank steak to accompany the rice, and the combo was delicious. Any grilled meat or Asian inspired marinade or sauce would be great with this rice. Just delicious!


  • 1 1/2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 c. rice
  • 1 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 c. coconut milk (I used 1 can plus a little extra water)


  1. Heat oil in a medium pot over medium heat.
  2. Add the rice, sugar, and salt, and stir for 2 minutes.
  3. Add the coconut milk and bring to a boil.
  4. After about 7 minutes, or as soon as you see the rice on the surface and most of the liquid has evaporated, cover the pot; reduce to minimum heat and cook covered for 20 minutes.
