Caribbean Rice

So yummy! You can also add your own choice of meat to make a complete one-pot meal.
Serves about 6.

2 cups long grain rice (white or brown your choice)
1 can pineapple chunks in its own juice
1 can coconut milk
1/2 onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, any color, seeded and diced
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp sugar (or Splenda)

Spray a pan with nonstick spray and saute your onion and garlic for a minute till onions are translucent. Add your bell pepper and rice and saute that for another minute or two. Now add in the pineapple chunks with the juice and the coconut milk. Mix thoroughly and throw in the oregano, paprika, red pepper flakes and sugar (I use Splenda because I am counting points!).

Bring to a boil and simmer on medium heat for about 20 minutes, taking time to peek in now and then and giving it a stir. If rice is still looking kind of too firm, add about a half cup of water and cover for another 5 minutes or so.

It's 6 points a cup.

It is so good you'd wanna roll on the floor.

  1. I made this for my family of 7,although the 4 month old did not get any, made plenty, it was easy to make and tasted like heaven, I opted for red pepper's because I like them best, I had to add another cup of water tho since my rice was still hard, other then that, simply awesome. 5 gold stars for this recipe.
