Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 2 cups frozen riced cauliflower
  • 2 cups vegetables (frozen mixed or leftovers)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup diced pineapple
  • 1/4 cup Low sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons BBQ sauce
  • 4 tablespoons vinegar (white wine or apple cider work great)
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon garlic (crushed)
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • non-stick spray
  • sesame seeds (optional garnish)
  • 2 Cups cooked chicken

Instructions

  • Cook the frozen cauliflower per package directions. Set aside.
  • Combine soy sauce, BBQ sauce, vinegar, corn starch, garlic and ginger in a bowl. Set aside.
  • Whisk together the eggs. Heat a large saucepan over medium heat sprayed with non-stick, and add the eggs, lightly scrambling for 2-3 minutes. Remove eggs from pan and, you guessed it, set aside.
  • Still over medium heat, add in a tablespoon of olive oil to the pan and cook the pineapple for 1-2 minutes.
  • Boost the heat to high, and add the rice, cauliflower, and vegetables to the pineapple. Stir and toss for 3 minutes, or until a bit of color forms on the cauliflower.
  • Stir in the sauce and cook for 1-2 more minutes. Remove from heat and fold in eggs and chicken. Serve immediately topped with more sriracha, sesame seeds, and another fried egg if you like. Enjoy your Pineapple Fried Rice!
