Pineapple Lime Rice

Crushed pineapple and lime zest make this side dish something special.


4 servings


1 cup uncooked long grain rice
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1 cup water
1/2 cup crushed pineapple
2 teaspoons butter
1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
1/4 cup chopped green onions
2 tablespoons lime juice


Bring the rice, pineapple juice, water, pineapple, butter, lime zest, and salt to a boil in a saucepan over high heat.
