Tropical Savory Rice Recipe - quick, easy and delicious rice recipe that's perfect to serve as a side dish for barbecue and grilled meats! by BirdsParty;com @birdsparty #rice #recipe #summerrice #summerrecipe #sidedish #sides #bbqrecipe #tropicalrecipe #tropicalrice

I know summer is nearly over, but fear not! With this tropical, savory rice dish you're sure to keep those summer vibes going a little while longer! 😉 Plus, it makes a great lunch or bento box addition!

This tropical rice dish is something we serve quite a lot in summer, as it pairs beautifully with barbecued or grilled meats. But it's also a great dish on its own with a side salad, if you don't fancy firing up the grill!

Tropical Savory Rice Recipe

The sweet notes in this rice dish offer a delicious, refreshing contrast to the charred, punchy flavors of any cookout you may still be hosting in these hot temps! 

I came up with tropical savory rice recipe as an inspiration from a Brazilian rice dish served usually at Christmas (since Christmas falls in the summer in the southern hemisphere).

I've appropriated the dish a little, with the addition of a juicy summer pineapple for the tropical vibes, but you could also do what Brazilians do, and use tinned peas instead.

Alternatively, you could also use mango or toasted sweetcorn in place of the pineapple. It's quite a  flexible dish, and like I said, you can tailor it to your own taste or what you already have in your fridge or pantry!

If you're a vegetarian, you could also leave out the ham altogether. It will still taste delicious and totally tropical 😉

This tropical rice dish is perfect to serve alongside BBQ chicken, fish, sausages or meat. It's also super quick and easy to make, and will look so pretty on any dinner table!
