Vegan Wednesday!: Coconut Rice

Coconut Rice

3 tbsp oil
1/2 onion, diced
1 tsp lemon grass, diced (optional)
2 cups white rice
2 1/2 cups water
1 14 oz can coconut milk
1/4 cup lightly toasted coconut flakes (optional)

In a large frying pan, sautee the onion in the oil for 3-5 minutes. Add rice and lemongrass and cook for about two minutes, until rice is toasted, stirring frequently and adding more oil if needed.
Carefully add water to rice. Allow to boil before reducing heat and covering. Continue to stir occasionally for about 15 minutes.
Add coconut milk and cook 10-15 more minutes, until rice is cooked through.
Top with toasted coconut flakes, if desired, and enjoy!
