This quick rice pilaf recipe gets bright flavor from Thai-inspired ingredients: lime juice, fish sauce, peanuts and plenty of fresh herbs. Serve it with roast pork tenderloin or pan-seared fish.

4 servings, about 3/4 cup each | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add rice, reduce heat to maintain a simmer, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit until the water is all or mostly absorbed, about 5 minutes more. Drain any remaining water.
  2. Meanwhile, stir lime juice, oil, fish sauce, sugar and crushed red pepper together in a medium bowl until the sugar dissolves.
  3. Stir the rice, pineapple, carrot, herbs and scallions into the dressing. Sprinkle with peanuts.
