    LifeIsGood's Note:

    Rice is one of the staple foods in Hawaii. This recipe makes ordinary rice exciting and flavorful. From A Taste of Hawaii cookbook. In a pinch, you could probably use any type of nut. I love that this rice cooks in the oven.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
    2. 2
      In an oven-proof and flame-proof casserole, set over medium heat, melt the butter and add the rice. Stir for a few seconds, until the butter coats the rice. Add the garlic and stir for a few seconds (not long enough for the rice to change color).
    3. 3
      Add the red and yellow peppers and cook for a few seconds. Add the stock and bring the mixture to a gentle boil. Add the raisins, nuts, sage and salt. Cover and place in the oven. Bake for about 18 minutes.
    4. 4
      Remove from the oven and let rest for about 10 minutes. Add the chopped cilantro and pineapple. Season if necessary and serve.
    5. 5
      Note: If you use salted macadamia nuts, you won't have to add the salt in the recipe.

      Made for ZWT #7 and my team Witchin Kitchen. This is a wonderful Pilaf and I'm adding it to my Best of 2011 cookbook. Wonderful veggies and love the sweet hit of the pineapple. I used red and yellow peppers, brown raisins, and 1/2 c brown rice and reduced the white rice to 1 c, just to add a bit of fiber.

      This was a great side dish, loved all the flavors. I had some complaints about the surprise crunch of the nuts, but I liked it. Next time I'll be more patient and chop them smaller.
