  • Saucepan


  • 1 cup White Rice
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 cup Light Coconut Milk
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ¼ cup Pineapple Chunks, drained


  • Rinse rice until water runs clear. Heat water, coconut milk and salt in a medium saucepan until it begins to boil. Add rice and cover. Reduce heat to allow the rice to simmer without bubbling over. Simmer until all of the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and leave covered for another 10 minutes to allow the rice to steam and absorb all of the liquid. Stir in pineapple.
