With a little guy who has Celiac Disease and myself being allergic to corn and wheat, there are a lot of foods that are off limits or difficult to find in options that are safe for us.  Regular pasta is not safe for either of us and most gluten free pastas are made from corn.  One thing we know is safe for both of us is rice and we eat a lot of it with our meals. Because rice requires little to no prep and is a good for us, allergy free food it’s a staple in our pantry.

Rice is key in our meal plan and is so versatile that it can be eaten for any meal or snack and mixed with so many other foods to create great recipes like this Hawaiian Rice Medley.  #CelebrateMinuteRice

Hawaiian Rice Medley - More With Less Today - Easy Hawaiian Rice Medley with Pineapple, Ham, and Red Pepper - Hawaiian Rice Using Minute Ready to Serve Rice

This recipe is quick and easy anyway but when we use Minute® Ready to Serve it’s even easier.  It’s also portable and is the perfect portion!

Hawaiian Rice Medley


  • Minute® Ready to Serve Rice – I like the Brown & Wild Rice combination
  • 1/2 cup diced ham
  • 1/2 red bell pepper – diced
  • 1/2 small onion – diced
  • 3/4 cup pineapple cut into small chunks
  • pineapple juice
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • spices to taste – salt, pepper, ginger, garlic powder, ground red pepper

Hawaiian Rice Medley


Saute the onion and red pepper in a medium skillet until they begin to soften then add the ham pieces.

After the ham, onion, and pepper have cooked for several minutes, add the pineapple pieces.

Pour approximately 1/3 cup of pineapple juice into the pan.  Add the honey and seasonings and stir well.

Let liquid begin to boil, then reduce heat to simmer and continue cooking for several minutes.

If you’re taking this meal on the go, you’ll want to let the above mixture cool and place approximately 1 cup into a microwave safe, portable container.  If you’re eating it right away turn heat down and cook your rice while it simmers.

With 1 cup of the pineapple ham mixture ready in a portable container, I can grab a Minute® Ready to Serve Rice container and make a quick meal any time.

When I’m ready to eat it, I simply heat the rice and pineapple mixture in the microwave for 60 seconds each and stir it together.

my kiddos don’t even know the difference as I have been using brown rice since they were babies! SO much healthier for everyone! I love these new options from Minute Rice!

Yum, this would make an awesome lunch for us. I really like having that Minute Rice for some quick recipes.

This reminded me of a little kiosk called Rice In A Box, it is basically stirred fried rice mixed with a topping of your choice. Minute rice is a good choice if we want to “personalize” a dish with rice in it. Thanks for the recipe too!

I love to learn a new recipe like this i absolutely love this. This is a great lunch for me and my hubby
