Limey Coconut Rice, inspired by Heather....

2 teaspoons olive oil
1.5 cups uncooked basmati rice
4 sliced green onions
1 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup light coconut milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper-
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
1 TBSP butter

Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the rice; sauté 3 minutes. Add onion; sauté 1 minute. Add broth, lime juice, coconut milk, salt, and pepper; stir. Bring to a rolling boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 - 25 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender, stirring once after 10 minutes. Stir in cilantro and butter; cover and let stand 5 minutes then stir. Serve with fresh chopped cilantro and lime wedges. Goes great with Jerk Chicken.
