This is another fried rice recipe that I love, with lots of small pieces of fresh pineapple and ham with my vegetables. It doesn’t take long to prepare – especially if you have rice prepared ahead of time. Have I said before how much I enjoy having a rice cooker? I received one for Christmas last year and it’s been great.
I’ve kept this fried rice simple, so that the spices aren’t overwhelming the pineapple and ham. I wanted this to be a dish that everyone could enjoy, and eat their veggies (hopefully!)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 white onion, diced
1/2 cup frozen corn
1 cup frozen peas
3 large carrots, grated
3/4 cups ham, diced
2 cups pineapple, diced
3 tablespoons gluten free soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
3 cups cooked rice
In a small bowl whisk together the soy sauce, ginger, and sesame oil.
Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet or wok. Add the garlic and onions and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the carrots, peas and carrots, cook for 4-5 minutes, until soft. Add the pineapple, ham, and rice.
Carefully pour the bowl of soy sauce, ginger, and sesame oil over the rice and vegetables and combine well. Cook for another 3-4 minutes, until everything is cooked throughout. Serve hot. Serves 4.
