You can turn your next meal into a visit to a tropical paradise by serving Thai pineapple fried rice. This is one dish that’s great for everyone. It’s extremely flexible. For over-vegetarians just eliminate the chicken.

Strict vegetarians remove both the meat and eggs and add a little tofu or even cashews for extra protein. For everyone else, the recipe is perfect for a taste treat your family will love.

I’ve used pork and chicken but you can top it with almost any type of meat or seafood.

You may have most the ingredients already on hand, but there are some that aren’t normally in everyone’s cupboard. If you’re using chicken in the rice, you’ll need a cup of it that you are bite size cubes.

You’ll also need two eggs, ยฝ cup of each sliced sweet onion, sliced green bell pepper, sliced red bell pepper, and sliced tomato.

You’ll use two types of soy sauce, thin soy sauce (two tablespoons) and dark soy sauce (two tablespoons). Healthy Boy and Golden Mountain are popular brands of both.

Pineapple Chunks for More Flavor

While you’re at the grocery, don’t forget to pick up tapioca flour, you’ll just need a teaspoon, but it’s important. This recipe takes 5 cloves of garlic, ยผ tsp Thai pepper powder, a whole pineapple but you’ll only use one cup of fresh pineapple chunks and the pineapple shell and 1 tsp Thai curry powder, so add that to your grocery list too.

You may have jasmine rice on hand. I make this recipe the day after I serve rice, making extra so I have four cups for the recipe. Besides all the ingredients mentioned, you’ll also need one tsp of each, sugar and salt and 5 tablespoons of vegetable oil.

Mix the tapioca starch with one tablespoon of dark soy to marinade the chicken for about 15 minutes, scramble the eggs using two of the tablespoons of oil.

Remove the eggs and add the next three tablespoons of oil, allowing it to heat before adding the garlic and chicken, add all other ingredients except the scrambled eggs, tomato, rice and a tablespoon of dark soy.

Let this mixture cook for several minutes so all the ingredients blend. Mix the last tablespoon of dark soy with the rice and add it to the mixture. Cook for a few minutes and remove to serve.

Right before serving to add the tomato and scrambled eggs. You can serve it in the carved out pineapple shell for a festive look and garnish it with spring onions and cilantro.
