Brown Coconut Rice with Cilantro


1 cup brown rice (uncooked, brown jasmine, basmati or short grain works well)
1 cup lite coconut milk (Thai Kitchen)
11/4 cups water
1 tsp fresh ginger (grated)
1 garlic cloves (crushed)
1/4 tsp salt (or more to taste)
2 tbsps grated coconut (sweetened)
3 tbsps cilantro


In a medium sized heavy pot, add coconut milk, rice, water, ginger, garlic, salt and coconut; bring to a bowl over medium heat.
