I have made coconut rice in previous recipes on this blog. If you try just one, please let it be this recipe. The pineapple and cilantro add just the right amount of complementing tastes to make this dish memorable.
Here in Southern California, zucchini and summer squash are always available. If you can’t find any in your area you can substitute another vegetable such as broccoli, carrots and/or cauliflower.
I never quite understood why people ate kumquats but they were staring back at me in the produce section so I decided to tackle trying to create a recipe using them. I am not a huge fan of the taste of them, alone, but mixed together with a few sweeter-variety fruits makes them somewhat irresistible.
I am more of a savory girl than a sweet one…from everything to my food preferences to my attitude. However, this combination of slightly-sweet pineapple with the subtleness of white beans makes this dish irrestible.
