On a coconut kick, thanks to Food52, I offer a quick and easy variation on a simple pot of jasmine rice. Steaming in coconut milk (soy-based) adds a subtle sweet favoring. Turn up the heat with onion, minced garlic and fresh ginger. Finish with sweet peppers, fresh basil, chili pepper flakes, and oh-yes, coconut. Done in 30 minutes. —Vivian Henoch

  1. In a four-quart pot, heat oil: sauté (or "sweat") onion, garlic and ginger
