Tropical Rice

When I came across this recipe for Tropical Rice on Jaden’s Steamy Kitchen blog, I was really really excited! A while back, on our honey moon, in Belize my husband and I ate a delicious coconut rice with beans and some seriously spicy jerk chicken. I’d tried for years to come up with a similar recipe that would bring me back to the clear blue skies, white sandy beaches, and turquoise waters of those wonderful warm winter days. I was never successful. While Jaden’s rice is not the same rice I ate in Belize, it not only tastes great, but better than what I had. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any of that super spicy jerk chicken to go with it – oh the wonder of burning delicious food! Instead, I made some General Tso’s Chicken. They go really well together!

Jaden recommends adding some “tropical” toppings. I chose to add 1/2 a cup of chopping macadamia nuts, 1 cup of chopped pineapple, 1/2 a cup of unsweetened coconut chips, and 2 chopped green onions.

Great tip: turn on some tropical music and it will taste even better!

Just to reiterate how good this is…I’m eating it right now…alone…for breakfast!
