Never stir rice. It doesn't matter how you cook it, stirring it breaks down the starches on the outer layer and turns the rice to a gooey paste. Simply place the rice in the boiling liquid, stir once and cover. Leave it alone until the water is evaporated.
Servings: 2 | Serving size: 1/2 cup cooked rice
Cooking Time: 30 Minutes

The cooked rice doesn't keep well.
|2 Tbsp||light coconut milk|
|1/2 cup||brown rice|
|1/4 cup||fresh cilantro leaves (chopped)|
Shake the can of coconut milk very well before opening it.
In a medium sauce pain, heat the coconut milk, water, salt and lime juice. When the liquid boils, stir in the rice.
Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, for about 15 minutes.
Do not boil away all of the liquid and do not stir the rice.
When a very small amount of liquid remains, remove the pan from the burner and let it stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Fold in the chopped cilantro and serve.
