Sweet Carribean Rice and New Meal Plan

Share

Sometimes we have to get creative with leftover rice.  We are actually pretty good about eating leftovers, but when it comes to leftover rice, no one seems to partake. So our quick recipe of the day is one way that turns leftover rice from dry and stale to amazing! It’s as easy as adding a little pineapple juice, coconut, and peppers! Super fast, and super delicious for lunch.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups leftover Rice
  • ½ cup crushed pineapple
  • 1/3 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 cup mixed bell peppers, chopped, shaped, or sliced

Instructions

  1. Mix rice, crushed pineapple, coconut, and peppers together.
  2. Add extra coconut to top for garnishing.
  3. Eat immediately. No need to chill or warm.

So, give this one a try next time you have extra rice!
