Coconut Rice + Sweet Red Bean

Thank you for stopping by!  First I’d like to warn you that this recipe blog is totally raw typing, errors and all ~ BUT hopefully I do well enough that you can recreate each recipe for your own enjoyment.  For those of you that dislike eye clutter the goal is to keep instructions simple and strait forward. Any questions, let me know...

Thanks Munhui for requesting this dessert at your get-together recently, you gave me the opportunity to recreate and improve it all together.  

Ingredients you’ll need:
4-6 Cups Cooked White Rice (long grain)
1 Can Coconut Milk (12 oz)
2 Cups Coconut Flakes
1/2 Cup Sugar
1-2 Tsp Coconut Extract
1 Tbsp Unsalted Butter 
Milk or Cream 
1-2 Tsp Rum or Rum Flavoring (Optional)
1 Can Sweet Red Bean (find at Oriental Markets or Natural Grocers) 

Place Cooked White Rice, Coconut Milk, Sugar and Unsalted Butter into a large pot and set over medium heat, then gently stir together ingredients.

Stir occasionally to keep rice from sticking to the bottom of the pot and burning.
Allow the mixture to simmer for about 15 minutes or until most of the Coconut Milk has absorbed into the Rice. Stir occasionally and do not let the mixture boil.

Next, add the Coconut Flakes and Extracts and then gently stir until the mixture is fluffy.  If mixture seems dry add a few tablespoons of cream/milk, if the mixture is thin allow it to cook longer.  Now that the mixture is ready, turn off the heat and remove from the warm burner.  Coconut Rice mixture should look like the picture below ~ fluffy and creamy.

Using an ice cream scoop or large spoon, scoop your Coconut Rice into ice cream dishes or small dessert bowls. There are some really cute and inexpensive dessert dishes at World Market, IKEA or even Dollar Tree...or if you're like me and enjoy finding unique treasures, visit your local thrift store.

Now, top with a few teaspoons of Sweet Red Bean, and serve.  Enjoy!
