PINEAPPLE RICE PILAF
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cups uncooked long-grain white rice
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium, chicken broth
1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, undrained
1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds
1/2 cup sliced green onions
Salt and pepper, to taste
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Mix in the rice and curry powder and stir until the rice is lightly browned and the curry is very aromatic. Turn up the heat to high and stir in the broth and pineapple. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to low. Cover the pan and simmer gently for about 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and set aside for 5 minutes. Just before serving, mix in the almonds and green onions and season to taste with salt
