Coconut-Cilantro-Lime Brown Rice.

Brown Rice With Coconut Milk, Cilantro & Lime.


This is a fun and easy way to jazz up brown rice. The coconut milk adds a subtle creaminess to the rice while the cilantro and lime add a zesty burst of flavor. Try this recipe the next time you make rice – you won’t regret it!

Makes 6 cups of rice.


  • 2 cups dry brown rice (I used a brown rice medley from Trader Joe’s)
  • 2 cups light coconut milk
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1 large handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
  • garlic salt

Add the coconut milk, water and olive oil into a medium pot on the stove and bring to a boil. Once the liquid is boiling, add in the rice and reduce the heat to a simmer. Put a lid on the pot and continue to simmer for ~30 minutes or until the liquid has been absorbed by the rice. Add in the lime juice, cilantro and a generous dash of garlic salt and stir well.
