Coco's Coconut Jasmine Rice

With subtle hints of coconut, this Jasmine rice is one yummy side dish. Corey would tell you could have just this rice for dinner, which you could, but even he knows better! This Jasmine rice is cooked in coconut milk, water, and butter giving it a creamy rich consistency- perfect to serve up with other Asian flavored dishes like grilled teriyaki steak or chicken, lettuce wraps, or my yummy miso glazed salmon.
