Pineapple Coconut Rice

August 1, 2010 § Leave a comment

I love the flavor of brown rice, but my husband only like white rice.  This problem leads me to play around with white rice to try to make it more flavorful.  I love this combination of coconut milk, pineapple, and white rice.  It goes well with anything with teriyaki or soy sauce.  It is also great for breakfast, when it has been heated up with some vanilla soy milk, cinnamon, and little bit of raw sugar.


  • 1 can of Trader Joe’s Light Coconut Milk
  • 1 can of crushed pineapple (with the unsweetened pineapple juice in the can)
  • 4 cups Jasmine rice
  • 2 cups water


1.  In a rice cooker, add the coconut milk, crushed pineapple, unsweetened pineapple juice (from the can of crushed pineapple), and water.   Next, add the rice.  Stir everything together and set the rice cooker to “cook”.  Stir every 10 minutes while the rice is cooking.

The rice cooker does all of the work.  Can this be any simpler?
