  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 4 scallions white and green parts separated and chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tsp. fresh grated ginger
  • 2 cups pineapple chunks about 1/2 of a pineapple
  • 3 cups cooked rice preferably 1-2 days old and chilled
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 cup shelled frozen edamame thawed
  • 3 tbsp. soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 tbsp. sriracha or to taste
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup roasted peanuts
  1. Place oil into large skillet and place over medium heat. Add white parts of scallions, garlic and ginger. Sauté about 1 minute. Add pineapple chunks and sauté until softened and browned in spots, about 5 minutes.
  2. Raise heat to high. Add rice, bell pepper, edamame, soy sauce or tamari and sriracha. Cook, flipping often, until rice begins to dry out and crisp in spots, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in basil and green parts of scallions.
  3. Divide onto plates and sprinkle with peanuts. Serve.
