Ingredients

  • 2¼ cups low-sodium vegetable or chicken broth, divided
  • 1 cup organic brown rice
  • 1¼ cups diced fresh pineapple, divided
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil

Directions:

  1. Pour 2 cups of the broth into a medium saucepan. Add brown rice. Cover, turn heat to high, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to medium.

  5. Add cooked rice to skillet. Cook 5 to 6 minutes, stirring often. Add blended pineapple mixture, and cook until liquid is absorbed.
  6. Spoon rice mixture into a serving dish, sprinkle with chopped scallions, and serve warm, with salt and pepper on the side, if necessary.
