Thai Pineapple Fried Rice

pineapple-fried-rice-recipe

These days, with a little baby at home, I tend to choose simple and quick recipes to prepare (my pots could tell you some really long stories about ‘one pot recipes’
🙂 ).

This Thai Pineapple Fried Rice fits the bill just perfectly. It is ready in less then 30 minutes, it is flavorful, healthy and offers just the right hint of warmth from chili.

Not only it is great to serve for lunch or dinner, it could actually make a lovely and hearty breakfast too.

Here’s how it’s all done…

Heat a large wok, cast iron skillet or non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat and place a large empty serving bowl nearby. Once the pan is hot, add 1 teaspoon oil. Pour in the eggs and cook, stirring occasionally, until the eggs are scrambled. Transfer the eggs to the empty bowl. Wipe out the pan if necessary with a paper towel (careful, hot!).

Add one tablespoon of oil to the pan and add the pineapple, red pepper and green onions.
