I made coconut brown rice this evening - I've been dreaming of coconut rice ever since I had it at Jeepney in the East Village! I cooked the rice in 1/2 coconut milk, 1/2 water and added some shredded unsweetened coconut. So unbelievably fragrant! And delicious!

I like using it for curry. In fact, now I won't eat curry any other way :)

I avoid coconut milk. It is unusually high in saturated fats. 1 cup gives you 255% of the recommended daily value of saturated fat and 85% total fat. Coconut products have become popular because they are the next highest oil on the list for saturation after the trans-fats are removed. Industrial food producers get stability without having to include trans fats in processed foods. Great for PR, lousy for people's health.

I like to make coconut milk corn chowder with roasted green chilies and caramelized shallots. Butter up some homemade corn tortillas and you've got yourself a nice meal.

I'll use coconut milk with the cheap ramen noodles; I'll cook the noodles, drain them, and set them aside. In the same saucepan, I'll add one of those individual boxes of chicken stock, a can of coconut milk, the seasoning packet and a variety of other things (fish sauce, grated ginger, minced garlic, lime, cilantro, sirracha, green onions, an egg, etc etc). A VERY cheap meal and super satisfying. I love coconut milk!

I love to cook with coconut milk as a substitute for dairy...here's a fabulous recipe for the Amazing No-Bake Watermelon Cake with non-dairy frosting using coconut milk...http://veganamericanprincess.com/amazing-easy-no-bake-watermelon-cake/
