Pineapple Fried Rice. This is an easy recipe that you can make as mild or spicy as you can tolerate.
1 cup small cooked shrimp
1 can chopped pineapple, drained
1 stock celery
1/2 cup yellow onion (if tolerated)
2 Tbs. oil
1 tsp. minced garlic (if tolerated)
1 tsp. minced ginger
2 cups cold cooked rice
2 Tbs. soy sauce
sugar or salt to taste
Wash and grate the carrot. Finely chop the celery. Peel and chop the onion.
Heat a frying pan or iron skillet over medium heat. Add the oil, coating the bottom. When the oil is hot, add the garlic and ginger. Stir-fry for 30 seconds, then add the onion. Stir-fry for 1 minute, then add the carrot and celery. Add the pineapple and the shrimp. Stir-fry just long enough to heat through.
Add the rice and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring continuously. Stir in the soy sauce. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary – adding either salt or sugar. Serve warm.
