“Pineapple fried rice recipe – simple & delicious lightly spiced fried rice made with fresh pineapple. A vegan dish.

Pineapple fried rice is an absolute favourite in my house. I quickly whipped this one up for lunch today. What I love about the addition of the pineapple is that it’s adds a burst of sweetness to break up the savoury flavour of the rice.

Fresh pineapple is the best bet for this recipe. though you can use canned ones too. I have used sriracha sauce In the recipe. Do use it if you have it. If not, then just add red chili sauce. You can always make this pineapple fried rice more or less spicy depending on your preferences.
