I just found the best rice recipe! All this time, I thought that fried rice is the best thing in the world, but I was wrong. At least until I tasted this Pineapple-lime rice! It is not your typical fried rice where you sauté’ everything. This recipe is more flavorful than fried rice. After all, all the flavours will be absorbed by the rice because you cook it all at once. This is perfect to go with fried chicken or fish. I even eat barbecue with this. It’s amazing! I have listed all the ingredients and steps so all you need to do is to follow them step by step and you are good to go! They will guide you to perfection. Feel free to add more ingredients if you prefer. Enjoy!
1 cup uncooked long-grain rice
½ cup pineapple juice
1 cup of water
½ cup crushed pineapple

¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup minced fresh cilantro
¼ cup chopped green onions

Step 1: Place a saucepan on the stove.
Step 2: Add the rice, water, pineapple juice, lime zest, butter, and salt. Turn the heat to high and allow it to boil.

Step 5: Remove from the heat.
Step 6: Serve hot and enjoy!
