Pineapple Fried Rice
Not a recipe as much as an idea, but I hope it might provide some inspiration. I love fried rice - it's one of fairly few "leftover dishes" I really enjoy so I always try to cook too much rice. (But far from always succeed.) You can put pretty much anything in it, and it'll turn out nicely. You can add lightly beaten eggs to the frying pan, or as we did, fry the eggs separately and serve on top.
This particular batch had garlic, a little bit of zucchini, pineapple (from a small tin), roasted cashew nuts, some freshly grated ginger, some cooked ham in cubes, soy sauce and... rice, obviously. Just fry the garlic and zucchini i a bit of oil. Add the pineapple, nuts, ginger, ham and rice, and season with soy sauce. Serve with an egg, and some chili sauce if you want some heat, and with cilantro (fresh coriander) if you're an addict like me.
