Pineapple Chipotle Rice

May 25, 2021

Pineapple might be my favorite fruit. The perfect balance of sweet and tart, the satisfaction and pure determination that results in cutting a pineapple, and it just works so well in savory cooking. Add some jazziness to your next pot of rice by adding in this delicious fruit. Let’s begin.

INGREDIENTS

1 Cup Uncooked Basmati Rice

2 Cups Pineapple, Cut into Small Chunks

1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil

1 Tablespoon Salt

1/4 Teaspoon Cumin Seed

1/4 Teaspoon Chipotle Powder

2 Cloves Garlic

1/4 Cup Cilantro

Juice of Half a Lemon

INSTRUCTIONS

In a saucepan, sauté garlic and cumin seeds in coconut oil. Once the garlic is slightly browned, add in rice, pineapple, salt, and chipotle. Mix well. 

Add in water. Bring to a boil then let simmer covered until rice is cooked. 

Once rice is cooked, toss with cilantro and lemon juice. Serve warm with any meal.
