Pineapple Rice – Barefeet within the Kitchen


Tangy, candy pineapple rice with cilantro and lime is a assured win for any pineapple lovers. My household provides it two thumbs up across the desk each time I make it.

It is a enjoyable facet dish that was initially impressed by this recipe for Hawaiian Huli Huli Rooster. I wished one thing candy and only a bit tangy, and the rice labored out superbly.

Rice with Pineapple

To say that we’re a household of pineapple lovers simply doesn’t even do justice to how a lot all of us get pleasure from contemporary, frozen, or canned pineapple. (And talking of these choices, any of them will work properly on this recipe.)

The much-loved pineapple was a giant hit once I added it to the cilantro lime rice. My household knowledgeable me that I ought to in all probability double the recipe the following time I make it.

If my boys are at residence whereas I’m slicing a pineapple, the percentages are good that it’s going to disappear inside moments. I’m simply as responsible as they’re although, seeing how I’ve been identified to demolish a batch of pineapple salsa solely alone.

Pineapple rice would even be scrumptious with Sticky Rooster or Candy and Spicy Glazed Salmon – or actually, nearly another major dish conceivable. My boys went just a little loopy over this rice and repeatedly informed me how a lot they favored it.

Cilantro Lime Rice

I’ve lengthy been a fan of cilantro lime rice. (I by no means can resist Chipotle’s rice given the chance!) Tart lime juice and peppery cilantro infuse the lengthy, fluffy grains of rice with fabulous taste on this easy oven baked rice.

That recipe was the inspiration for this pineapple rice with cilantro and lime. Whereas technically, the cilantro and lime are non-obligatory right here, I extremely advocate together with them.

The tangy lime is a pleasant stability to the candy pineapple and rice and the contemporary cilantro provides depth with only a tiny trace of the lemon and pepper flavors that cilantro is understood for contributing.
