Thai something totally new. This Thai rice is bursting with a plethora of palate-pleasing flavors. Jasmine, turmeric, basil and coconut milk are the leading players in this scrumptious side. Try some tonight.
At a glance
1 cup jasmine rice 14 oz. light coconut milk 1/4 cup plus 1 Tbsp. water or chicken broth Zest of 1/2 lime 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes 1/4 tsp. turmeric 1/4 tsp. granulated onion 1/8 tsp. sugar 1 tsp. fresh basil, chopped
Combine all ingredients except basil in pot, stir over medium heat until reaches boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 15-20 minutes without lifting lid. Remove lid, add basil and fluff with fork. Let sit, covered for 5 additional minutes. If your rice seems sticky, a small squeeze of fresh lime juice stirred into rice will help.
