Pineapple Rice

Remember the Island Spice Pork Tenderloin I posted the other day?  Well when looking for something to serve with my pork, I came across this rice recipe from Sing for Your Supper.  I’ve actually had it saved for a while, waiting for the right main course to make it with.  And I’m sure I couldn’t have found one more perfect!  We all know how much I love pineapple, and combined with bright cilantro, and the crunch of the almonds – perfect!!  I forgot to buy a red bell pepper at the grocery store (and wasn’t going back out at that point), but I know it would only add to the awesomeness that was this rice.

One year ago: Parmesan risotto and roasted broccoli

1 cup quick cooking rice (I used brown)
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup chopped fresh pineapple
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
salt, to taste
1/3 cup slivered almonds
handful of fresh cilantro, chopped

In a medium pot, boil and the chicken broth and stir in rice.  Cover and remove from heat, let sit for 10 minutes.  Fluff with a fork and stir in salt, pineapple, bell pepper, almonds and cilantro.  Stir and let sit a few minutes before serving.
