1/1 Photo of Macadamia and Pineapple Rice Pilaf
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.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1 1/2 cups long-grain white rice
- 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup red bell pepper, diced
- 1/4 cup yellow bell pepper, diced
- 3 cups chicken stock
- 1/2 cup raisins (either dark or golden)
- 1/2 cup roasted macadamia nuts, preferably unsalted, chopped
- 1 -2 sage leaf, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped (or more, if you love cilantro!)
- 1 cup pineapple, diced
- 1Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
- 2In 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).
- 3Add 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.
- 4Remove from the oven and let rest for about 10 minutes. Add the chopped cilantro and pineapple. Season if necessary and serve.
- 5Note: If you use salted macadamia nuts, you won't have to add the salt in the recipe.
