Asian-Style Fried Rice and Beans
Ingredients
  • 1/2  pineapple, peeled, cored, and sliced, or one 8 ounce can pineapple slices
  • 1  tablespoon  vegetable oil
  • 2  medium  carrots, thinly biased-sliced
  • 4  cloves garlic, minced
  • 2  teaspoons  grated fresh ginger*
  • 2  cups  cooked brown rice**
  • 1 15  ounce can  garbanzo beans (chickpeas), rinsed and drained
  • 1  cup  frozen peas, thawed
  • 3  tablespoons  reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3  cup  snipped fresh cilantro
  • 1  lime, halved
  •  Fresh cilantro leaves
Directions

1. Quarter pineapple slices. In a 12-inch nonstick skillet heat 2 teaspoons of the oil over medium heat. Add pineapple; cook about 2 minutes per side or until golden brown. Remove from skillet; set aside.

2. Pour the remaining 1 teaspoon oil into the hot skillet. Add carrots; cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes or until just tender. Add garlic and ginger; cook for 30 seconds.

3. Stir in brown rice, garbanzo beans, and peas. Add soy sauce. Cook and stir about 4 minutes or until heated through. Stir in the 1/3 cup cilantro. Return pineapple to skillet; heat through.

4. To serve, squeeze lime over pineapple mixture. If desired, top with additional cilantro leaves.

From the Test Kitchen*Tip:
  • Fresh ginger is a freezer gem. Place unpeeled ginger in a freezer bag. When a recipe calls for fresh ginger, peel and grate in its frozen state, no thawing required.
**Tip:
  • Leftover or quick-cooking microwaveable rice also works great.
