Cook time: 45 minutes / serves 12

Heat coconut oil and rice in pan until rice darkens in color, stirring constantly. Pour in water 2 cups at a time. Leave uncovered on high heat to boil. When rice has swelled cover pan half way and let cook for 10-15 minutes. Then cover pan entirely, turn on low, and let simmer until rice is tender.

Fluff with fork and squeeze lime on top. You may add some butter on top as well if you like and garnish with toasted coconut. Serve with chicken or fish.

This was very good! The texture of the rice was a lot like rice pilaf, and it came out tender and fluffy. The lime added a nice touch and I liked the contrasting crunch of the toasted coconut on top. 5 stars!

Sounds amazing! Can this be done with other types of rice? Would I need to adjust the amount of water?

Great recipe!! I've used this as a stand alone dish as well as a base for other flavors. I've added curry and cayenne for spicy Thai dish or even some sugar and milk for breakfast!
