You'll notice the title of this recipe is "Fried" Rice. We didn't really fry it, we baked it, but it contains scrambled egg, like fried rice, so we're going with it. Just try and stop us.
This was another dish for our Hawaiian themed girls night. We pretty much created this one from scratch, and everyone seemed to like it. Success!
Here's what you need:
2 cups jasmine rice, rinsed
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 fresh pineapple
2 large (or 3 small) scallions
1 jar Apricot preserves
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
salt and pepper to taste
Here's what you do:
Rinse your jasmine rice and put in a large sauce pan with the water. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover. Cook for 20 minutes.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
While the rice is cooking, slice the green onion. Our guest of honor doesn't think she likes onion, so we cut these up pretty small.
Next, slice the pineapple.
Finally, beat the eggs.
Scramble the eggs so that they are fully cooked, not runny at all.
About the time that your eggs are cooked, your rice should be done. Fluff the rice and set aside for a minute.
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl, except the rice and the soy.
Top with the rice, and pour the soy over that.
Fold everything together to combine it. Make sure you get the apricot preserves fully mixed.
Pour into a large casserole dish and bake for 25-30 minutes.
