Tropical Rice

Every time I buy a pineapple and cut it up so it can be easily accessed I seem to be the only person who ends up eating it. I love it but there is only so much I can eat and I don’t know if it’s just me but after I eat it, my tastebuds seem to change. Then everything else I eat afterwards tastes off. SOooo I needed to do something with the leftovers. After asking my awesome FB friends I decided on adding some pineapple to coconut rice. I love coconut rice, well I love anything coconut but that is a whole other story. I never thought to put pineapple in my rice but now I may never not put it in my rice. It was that good.


Kaili was helping scoop rice, doing her own thang.

I found this recipe and kind of followed but not exactly.


2 cups jasmine rice

1 1/4 cups chicken broth

1 cup coconut milk

1 cup diced pineapple * see note

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1 teaspoon brown sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup finely chopped green onion

* I threw a cup of pineapple in my magic bullet and blended it until it was not quite pureed.

In a medium pot heat sesame oil over medium heat, add the rice and sautee until lightly toasted.

Add the rest of the ingredients, stir to blend and bring to boil on high heat. Once boiling, turn the heat to low, cover with tight fiting lid and let cook for 20 minutes. Turn off head and do not open lid. Let sit for 10 minutes.

With a fork, fluff up the rice  and check to make sure there is enough salt for your liking. Top with green onion.
