Here’s a delightful brown rice dish that’s very tasty and easy to make. We especially created it to serve with our recipe for Roasted Asian-Style Lean Pork Tenderloin but it’s delicious as a side for many Asian recipes such as chicken stay or beef teriyaki. We’re using our favorite kind of rice called Basmati brown. The skinny for one serving is only 95 calories, 1.8 grams of fat and 2 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS

- Heat oil in a large nonstick pan until hot. Turn the temperature down to medium. Add rice, red pepper, green onion, ginger and onions and stir constantly until the rice begins to brown, about five minutes. Remove pan from the heat.
- Add soy sauce, undrained pineapple and water. Stir to blend.
- Bring the rice mixture to a boil. Cover pan, turn down heat to simmer and cook for 35-40 minutes or until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed. Let sit for five minutes and then fluff with a fork before serving.
