Pineapple Unfried Rice, By Chef AJ

1

ABOUT THE RECIPE:

Here's a great alternative to traditional fried rice by Chef AJ!

2

INGREDIENTS:

1 (20-ounce) can crushed unsweetened PINEAPPLE
1 RED BELL PEPPER, finely diced
1 bunch SCALLIONS
1 cup GREEN PEAS
4 ounces PEA PODS, sliced
4 cups chilled cooked BROWN RICE
1/2 cup low-sodium TAMARI
1 bunch CILANTRO LEAVES, chopped

3

INSTRUCTIONS:

Drain the can of pineapple, reserving the juice to use to sauté the veggies. Heat 1/2 cup of the juice in a wok or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

Add the pepper and scallions and sauté 2 to 3 minutes. Add the peas, pea pods and rice and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Add the pineapple and tamari and cook for another minute or so. If the mixture becomes too dry, add more pineapple juice as you are sautéing. Remove from the heat, stir in the cilantro, and serve.

4

CHEF’S NOTES:

For a spectacular presentation, serve in a hollowed-out fresh pineapple half.

If you are avoiding all sodium, substitute 1/2 cup California Balsamic Teriyaki vinegar for the tamari.
