For someone who doesn’t like to leave their house I sure know how to overbook myself. Since my daughter went back to school my schedule has been insane, so I have been living for quick and easy lunches that make enough food to incorporate into our dinner.

I quit eating eggs a couple of years ago (I watched a documentary about factory farming and I just couldn’t stomach them), and the only thing I really miss is fried rice. I have tried various vegan versions over the years, but they either didn’t have the right consistency or flavor. So, instead of trying to match traditional fried rice, I have come up with some different, but equally as tasty ideas.

I love pineapple! On my pizza, in my stir fries, juiced … so pineapple fried rice is a no-brainer for me. This is a sweet and savory dish that can be a side, or even my lunch when I am home alone.pineapple-fried-riceYou can omit the cashews if those don’t float your boat, but I like the extra crunch and protein they add to the dish.

pineapple-fried-rice-recipeI like to cook up a batch of rice at the beginning of the week, and stash it in the fridge, so I can quickly whip up dishes like these on days when I have little time. After a few days in the fridge the rice, especially wild rice, can be a little dry, and that is why I added all of the liquid from the can of pineapple. If you are working with freshly cooked rice, cut back the liquid.
