Asian-Style Fried Rice and Beans

I love rice, and I am always looking for new interesting ways to cook it. Thankfully, there are Better Homes and Gardens recipe archives where my search for a new rice dish successfully ended with finding the amazing recipe for Asian-Style Fried Rice and Beans! I just made it, and I must say I am really impressed. It was so easy and delicious – definitely a keeper! A perfect combination of sweet and savory flavors! It’s a meatless, vegetarian recipe that works great as a side dish as well as a main dish thanks to protein-packed chickpeas and fiber rich ingredients!

And did I tell you how easy it was to make this recipe? There are only 5 main ingredients: carrots, pineapple, chickpeas, green peas, and cooked rice (I used Basmati).

What I really loved about this recipe is that it instructed me (and you!) to sear the pineapple, which resulted in a much richer pineapple flavor, than if i just stirred it in without searing it first. I used canned diced pineapple, drained it really well, and then seared it beautifully to a nice golden color:

And, here are the changes I made to the original BHG recipe:

1) I used canned diced pineapple, drained it really well, and it was easy to sear it to a nice golden color!

2) Instead of fresh ginger, I used 1/4 teaspoon dry ginger.

3) The recipe calls for brown rice, I used Basmati rice which worked great!

4) I used gluten free soy sauce.
