Thai Pineapple Fried Rice


I have to admit, sometimes I forget to get a menu together and after the crazy week that I've had (and it's just Tuesday), menu planning hasn't even been on my radar, sadly... We also had a "clean out the fridge week" last week, that was successful - and for some reason, because I didn't take time to plan a menu last week, I didn't take time this week either.... anyway, I digress... 

Needless to say, when Dan asked me what was for dinner tonight (he usually cooks on Tuesdays because he works from home), I didn't have anything planned... I threw out the idea for fried rice because I knew we had rice in the pantry and random veggies and at least one egg in the fridge.

Well, if you know Dan at all - you know he can't be having just plain fried rice - he had to come up with something quite yummy and he didn't fail! It was yummy and easy and, did I mention yummy!?! 


Thai Pineapple Fried Rice


1 tablespoon oil 

1 or 2 shallots - diced

3 cloves garlic (chopped) 

1 red chili (chopped) 

1 red pepper (diced) 

1 egg (lightly beaten) 

3 tablespoons vegetable broth (we used turkey broth that we had in the freezer)

1 tablespoons fish sauce

2 tablespoons soy sauce 

1 tablespoon curry powder 

1 teaspoon sugar 

1/2 cup cashews (roasted)

3 cups cooked rice

1 cup pineapple chunks

1/4 cup peas (fresh or frozen) 

1/4 cup raisins

1/4 cup cilantro (chopped) 


1. Heat the oil in a pan. 

2. Add the shallot, garlic, chillies and red pepper and stir-fry until fragrant, about a minute. 

3. Add the egg and stir-fry for a minute. 

4. Add the stock, fish sauce, soy sauce, curry powder and sugar and stir-fry. 

5. Add the cashews and stir-fry for 30 seconds. 

6. Add the rice, break up any clumps and stir-fry for a few minutes. 

7. Add the pineapple, peas and raisins and stir-fry to mix them in. 

8. Remove from heat and serve garnished with cilantro. 

This would be great with chicken or shrimp - but we preferred it to be meatless. It was still very filling! Dan adapted this recipe from the Closet Cooking Blog.  He has other great recipes too - so you should totally check this blog out!
