This vegetarian pineapple fried rice is a staple in our household because there are days that even this food blogger doesn't want to stay in the kitchen for a long time. That's why I always try to have some quick recipes at hand like these sliders or this vegetarian lentil rice.
I have been thinking of showing you how to make Thai fried rice for a while. Now, this might not look like the authentic Thai fried rice, but it's just as delicious. Why do I love this vegetarian pineapple fried rice, you ask?
- It's quick - after a long day of work, or studying, none of us wants to spent two hours preparing food for a family. And well, take out is not always good.
- This dish is quite healthy, only 2 tablespoons of olive oil are used for the whole dish that's enough for four people. It's also packed with vegetables thanks to Mann's Fresh Vegetables.
- You can use up leftover rice. You know how I'm so against food waste. This is the perfect way to use up the leftovers of whatever rice you have.
The ingredients to make this vegan Asian food (there are no eggs in this recipe) are actually very few. You need Mann's Fresh Vegetables, onions, leftover rice and a combination of condiments and sauces such as sriracha and soy sauce. You will also need a little bit of brown sugar to tone the flavors.
Note and tips to make this vegetarian pineapple fried rice:
- Make sure your leftover rice is at least a day old. Freshly cooked rice will result in mushy fried rice.
- You can add chicken or beef or even tofu to this fried rice for more variations.
- Try to adjust the flavors to your preference. If you like your dish to be saltier, add more soy sauce and if you like it spicier then add more sriracha.
- Don't cook the ingredients too much, you want to have shiny, crispy veggies for this recipe.
