Ingredients:

1 cup Urban Accents Siam Jasmine Rice
1-1/2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
1 cup pineapple juice
1 lemongrass stalk
3 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
3/4 cup cashews, extra for garnish
1/2 pineapple, cubed
Salt & pepper to taste
Scallions, green part only, for garnish


Directions:

In medium saucepan, heat stock, pineapple juice and lemongrass over high heat to infuse. While liquid is infusing, heat oil in another medium saucepan; saute onion and garlic until translucent.  Add red pepper and saute until soft. Add rice to pan and stir to coat with onion, garlic and pepper. Add the liquid / lemongrass mixture and a pinch of salt. Bring the mixture to a boil and lower heat to a simmer. Cover and simmer until rice is tender, about 10-12 minutes. While rice is cooking, cook the cashews in a nonstick pan over high heat and "dry fry" until golden brown. Remove immediately once they begin to color. Once rice is cooked, remove lemongrass stalk; add the cashews and pineapple. Salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with crushed cashews and chopped scallions and enjoy..
