Toasted Coconut Rice
This savory-sweet rice dish makes a natural side for a variety of meat dishes. The flavors in this dish are out of the ordinary, but will ultimately satisfy a hungry appetite.
Rinse the dry rice until it runs clear to keep it from clumping.
Rinse rice in a sieve until water runs clear; drain.
Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add brown sugar, scallion whites, and garlic; sauté until sugar melts, about 3 minutes. Stir in rice to coat.
Combine broth, coconut milk, and enough water to make 2 cups liquid; add to rice mixture. Bring rice to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, 15 minutes. Remove rice from heat and let steam 5 minutes more; fluff with a fork.
Garnish rice with scallion greens and toasted coconut.
