Pineapple Fried Rice

Yield: 4

Pineapple Fried Rice

This is a good easy one when you have a craving for fried rice. The pineapple makes it really sweet. You can just leave the pineapple out, but then you have to call it ‘fried rice’ )

Ingredients

2 leaves bok choy (chopped)

2 large carrots (thinly sliced)

2 cloves garlic

3 regular green onions (chopped)

1 regular yellow onion (diced)

1 cup pineapple (cubed)

1 cup peas (frozen)

1 cup brown rice

1 cup vegetable broth (low sodium)

4 eggs

1 Tbsp coconut oil

black pepper

red pepper

2 Tbsp tamari

1 breast chicken (optional)

Instructions

  1. Cook brown rice as per package instructions (usually calls for 2 cups of water to 1 cup of rice – we normally use 1 cup of veggie broth + 1 cup water to give it a little flavor).
  2. Prepare your veggies, spices and beat your eggs.
  3. Add about 1 Tbsp coconut oil to a large pan and heat over medium-high heat. Once oil is hot add rice and cook until some of the rice is browned (about 8-10 min). Set rice aside in a bowl.
  4. Add onion (yellow), garlic, bok choy, and carrots to pan and cook (about 5 min).
  5. Add pineapple, peas, and cook until veggies are the consistency you like them (about 3 min). Set vegetables aside in another bowl.
  6. Add eggs, black pepper (to taste) and red pepper (to taste) and scramble until just set.
  7. Add rice, veggies and green onions back to the pan and mix well. Sprinkle with a little tamari and mix one last time.

    This was very good. My whole family ate it up. I used carrots, onion, cabbage, baby swiss chard, green onion and pineapple in the fried rice. I served it with roasted broccoli and a salad.
