coconut rice

this is one of my favorite side dishes to various types of chicken and fish. It's simple and sweet. you will love it.

Coconut Rice
2 cups jasmine or basmati rice, uncooked
1 can (14 ounces) coconut milk
1 1/2 cups water
1 to 2 teaspoons sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
Chopped, fresh parsley

In a pot with a tight-fitting lid, combine the coconut milk, water, sugar, salt and pepper. Stir, making sure sugar dissolves. Add the rice and bring to boil. Cover, reduce heat and cook for about 20 minutes or until rice is tender.
Pour into a serving bowl and garnish with the chopped parsley. Serve.
