This pineapple fried rice recipe is a must-try! This recipe is very versatile. I suggest using fresh pineapples if possible. You can even use frozen veggies. The best part is there is no need to defrost the veggies before cooking! Enjoy the savory and sweet flavors of this healthy pineapple fried rice. This is unlike any fried rice you’ve made before!
3 large eggs, whisked
3 tbsp safflower oil, divided (any high-heat oil works, too)
1 c. diced yellow onions, about 1/2 large onion
1 large carrot, peeled and diced
1/2 c. frozen peas, (70 grams)
1/2 large red pepper, diced
1 tsp turmeric
1 1/2 tsp ground coriander
6 c. cooked jasmine rice
pinch of salt
1 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
3 tbsp chopped basil
1 1/4 c. diced pineapple
2 scallions, sliced
3 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
1/2 tsp ground white pepper, optional
HOW TO MAKE PINEAPPLE FRIED RICE
Step 1: In a wok or large saute pan, heat half tbsp oil over medium-high heat. Add the whisked eggs once the pan is hot and scramble using a spatula. Cook the eggs for about 30 seconds to a minute. To a plate, transfer the eggs and set aside. Using paper towels, wipe the wok or pan if it is dirty.
Step 2: In the same pan, heat the rest of the 2 1/2 tbsp oil over medium-high heat. Then, add the onions and season with a pinch of salt. Cook the onions for about 2 minutes or until they begin to soften. Next, add the red pepper, carrots, and peas. Continue to cook for 2 minutes more before adding the turmeric and coriander. Stir well, then add the rice. Continue to cook while stirring for another 1 to 2 minutes.
Step 3: Quickly whisk the soy sauce (or tamari) and brown sugar in a small bowl. Add this to the rice along with the while pepper (optional). Stir well until blended.
Step 4: Next, add the eggs, pineapple, and sliced scallions. Stir again.
Step 5: Turn the heat off and stir in the chopped basil. Serve the pineapple fried rice right away. Enjoy!
To balance out the turmeric and soy sauce with the pineapple, I added brown sugar to this recipe. You can omit the sugar if desired.
In place of turmeric, you can use curry powder instead.
