Pineapple Coconut Rice

Pineapple Coconut Rice: Jessi's Kitchen

I have a serious obsession with a really good Pineapple Coconut Rice. There is something about the combination of flavors that is just SO awesome. I also love the sweet flavor the coconut milk adds and the texture the fat provides for the rice.

I have been making coconut rice off and on for a while and I kept forgetting to write down what I did and then I sometimes couldn’t repeat it. That would always just leave me really sad and extremely disappointed.

So….I finally did the smart thing and wrote down the recipe so I can avoid the devastation of a bad batch of coconut rice.

We don’t eat rice a lot but sometimes I really just love a good bowl of rice. We often serve this one with my easy beef stir-fry dish, brisket or a good rotisserie chicken.

Enjoy!
