Black rice with coconut cream: Prepare coconut rice by soaking in water for at least 3 hours – or overnight. Figure about 1/3 cup rice per person. To cook, you simply steam the rice over water. The process of steaming is the same as the coconut rice (rice maker, pot/colander). Again, the rice should take anywhere from ½ an hour to 40 minutes. When tender, remove rice and stir in coconut milk just to the point of creaminess, a littler runnier than the white rice. Brown sugar to taste and vanilla bean paste if you are lucky to have it :) Add a healthy pinch of salt. Taste. Serve in pretty bowls and top with coconut cream.
