This recipe is so delicious and really quite simple. The Boy (who is pretty picky about his food) LOVED this one, so I figure it must be a hit! For more fantastic recipes, check out The Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap!

Coconut Pineapple Rice

1 cup(s) light coconut milk
1 cup(s) water
2 tsp ginger root, fresh, minced
1/2 tsp table salt
1 cup(s) uncooked jasmine rice
1 cup(s) pineapple, fresh, diced
1/2 cup(s) scallion(s), chopped
1/4 tbsp mint leaves, fresh, chopped
2 tbsp chopped almonds, toasted
1/2 medium lime(s), cut into 4 wedges

In a medium saucepan, combine coconut milk, water, ginger and 1/2 teaspoon of salt; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir in rice; reduce heat, cover and simmer until rice is tender and most of liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes.

Remove from heat; add pineapple, scallions and mint (do not stir). Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with almonds; fluff rice with a fork. Serve with lime wedges to squeeze over rice. Yields about 1 cup per serving.
