About Thai Basil Pineapple Fried Rice Recipe:

A delicious fried rice flavoured stir fried vegetables, basil leaves, pineapple and spicy sauce. It is different from Chinese fried rice in that it is prepared with jasmine rice rather than regular long grain rice. Like Chinese fried rice, Thai fried rice does contain scrambled egg, but the egg is mixed in with the rice while still slightly runny, coating the rice grains and creating an incredibly creamy dish. Thai-style sweet and spicy pineapple fried rice with red bell pepper, cashews and cilantro. This is a healthy and quick, vegetarian weeknight dinner! This dish comes together very quickly, so be sure to have your ingredients (including chilled leftover rice) prepped in advance.
