Simple Coconut Rice

This is seriously might be the easiest rice dish ever.  My favorite kind:  simple and yummy!

There might be more complicated ways to make coconut rice, but this is my favorite way.  And it's simple.  Just involves a little opening and dumping.  Easy peasy.

I just sub a can of coconut milk for some of the water when I'm making this rice.  I don't make rice on the stovetop anymore, because I use my rice cooker.  But you could make it on the stovetop just the same as you usually do.

I love to make this in my rice cooker, because I can set the delay timer on it, so it will be ready when I am.

Serve with slow cooker kalua pork and fresh pineapple or mango.  Dinner in a flash!

Here's the recipe (or rather the method):
