SERVES 4

INGREDIENTS

2.5 cups of coconut milk

3/4 cups orange juice

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

pinch of salt

1 cup white basmati rice

2 to 4 teaspoons maple syrup – to tast

1 teaspoon cinnamon

additional option – if you enjoy orange rind this recipe is great adding 1 table spoon of rind.
1) Mix the coconut milk, water, orange juice, vanilla extract, salt, and rice in a medium-sized pot. Bring the mixture to a boil and reduce to a low simmer. Cover the pot, but leave the lid very slightly ajar to let steam escape.

2) Simmer the rice for 30 minutes, or until most of the liquid has absorbed. Stir in maple syrup, cinnamon, and zest (if desired). Continue cooking till rice is creamy and soft. If necessary, add a little more water or maple syrup.

3) Serve warm or cool, dusted with extra cinnamon if desired!
