Pineapple Ginger Rice

Rice is a great side dish for so many meals but plain white rice is boring! The terrific thing about rice is it can get all gussied up and fit right in with darned near anything! When I make Asian dishes or if I’m making something that has that tropical vibe I make my Pineapple Ginger Rice.

Pineapple Ginger Rice turns your meal into a tropical getaway!

The other night we had Pete and his family over for dinner. I made my Hawaiian Pork Tenderloin so Pineapple Ginger Rice was the perfect side dish! It’s a little sweet with a little heat. We love it with the pork tenderloin or ham and it also goes well jerk chicken.

With just a tiny bit of prep this delicious side dish can be ready in the time it takes to make long grain rice!

Just pulse a can of pineapple rings (don’t use the juice) in a food processor until the pineapple is pureed. It’s fine if you have some larger pieces of pineapple. The kids think it’s a treat to get a nice chunk of pineapple!

Pineapple Ginger Rice makes your dinner a tropical getaway!

Grate fresh ginger to get 1 1/2 – 2 tablespoons. Then combine it with the pineapple.

A half cup of cooked rice is a serving so you can make 1 cup (uncooked rice) to serve six but you may want to make a little more. This rice seems to fly out of the serving bowl!

To keep your rice from getting sticky use this method to cook it. When it’s done all you do is stir in the pineapple ginger mixture and season the rice with salt. I find that salting the rice brings out the sweetness of the pineapple really well!

Pineapple Ginger Rice turns your meal into a tropical getaway!

That’s it! Perfect Pineapple Ginger Rice to go with your favorite tropical dishes!
