Coconut Water Rice


Rice cooked in coconut water has a nice flavor to it. It is a better version of your everyday, regular white rice. Follow the directions exactly, and you'll always get fluffy rice.

  • 2 cups uncooked long-grain rice

  • 2 cups coconut water (such as Goya®)

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Combine rice, coconut water, water, olive oil, and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, covered, until liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Do not lift the lid while rice is cooking. Fluff with a fork.

Cook's Notes:

You can use butter instead of olive oil, if desired.
