Sweet and Savory Coconut Rice

What makes this coconut rice is using some coconut milk.  I tend to use lite coconut milk unless instructed specifically to use whole milk.  The other part of this recipe is that the coconut milk is diluted with water and a splash of vinegar and a little sugar are added giving it that perfect blend of sweet and savory.  I have made this rice a few times now and it is always delicious.

Sweet and Savory Coconut Rice
Makes 8 servings

2 cups white or jasmine rice
1 (14-ounce) can coconut milk
2 cups water
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Splash of white vinegar
2-3 teaspoons granulated sugar
1/4 cup chopped green onions, plus chopped green onion tops
Black pepper to taste

Combine rice, coconut milk, water, salt, vinegar, and sugar in a saucepan and bring to a boil.  Turn heat to low and cover for 20 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed.  Allow to stand 5 minutes.  Add chopped green onion bottoms, black pepper (if desired), and additional salt if necessary.

Garnish with green onion tops and serve immediately.
