This pineapple fried rice is a gorgeously vibrant dish packed full of flavour and nutrients that is perfect for lunch, dinner or anywhere in between. It is something I’ve been making versions of for years but I’ve just never written it down until now.  Before going vegan I would always add a handful of prawns,  an egg and sometimes chicken to this dish so this is an option if you eat animal products.

The vegetables listed in the ingredients are interchangeable and can be substituted for any others you have to hand, meaning that this is a great recipe to use up leftover fresh produce and avoid food waste. This recipe doesn’t take very long to prepare making it a perfect meal to make midweek if you’re short on time.

This recipe calls for cooked rice so, if you’re planning on making it yourself you will need to add that onto the time it takes to cook this. If you’d love to make rice from scratch but can’t quite get it right then microwavable versions work perfectly fine in this.
