  • 3 cups newly cooked rice
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine (sake or mirin are recommended)
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons or more toasted garlic
  • 2 tablespoons or more finely sliced scallions


  • Place the rice in a mixing bowl. Using a fork, rake through the rice to separate the grains to fluff it up.
  • Pour the extra virgin coconut oil and rice wine into the rice. Stir lightly but thoroughly to blend.
  • Add enough salt and pepper to get a good balance.
  • Taste the rice. If you want bolder flavors or if you prefer a different balance of flavors, add more extra virgin coconut oil, rice wine, salt or pepper, or all of them.
  • When you're happy with how the rice tastes, toss in the toasted garlic and sliced scallions.
  • Serve your garlic and scallion rice with your main dish.
