We have all the ingredients for the stir fry ready in different bowls. The garlic and ginger together, the broccoli, the carrots, and the corn. We spread the peanuts on a cookie sheet and place in the oven for about 5 minutes. We want them fragrant. We heat a large pot of water over high heat, for the noodles. When

Vegetarian Thai Fried Rice with Pineapple
Prep Time : 20min Cook Time : 10min Type of Prep : Assemble, Fry, Stir-Fry Cuisine : Asian, Thai, Vietnamese INGREDIENTS:
          

2 tablespoons peanut, canola or other neutral-tasting oil 6 whole, dried chili peppers (serrano, thai or other small-sized peppers), optional 1/2 cup chopped scallions, both white and green parts (~8-12 scallions) 1/4 cup minced shallots (~ 2 bulbs) 2 cups cooked white rice, preferably jasmine 1/3 cup grated carrot (~1 large carrot) 8 oz. can pineapple rings, drained, sliced in small wedges 1-2 tablespoons light soy sauce to taste Juice from 1 lime (~ 3 tablespoons) 1 egg, optional (omit for vegan version) Cilantro or mint leaves for garnish

PREPARATION: Ingredient note: Light soy sauce (also known as thin soy sauce) is a lighter colored, mild flavored, slightly saltier version of traditional Chinese soy sauce that's available in Asian grocery stores. Don't confuse "light" with "lite." "Lite" soy sauce is a low-sodium version of traditional soy sauce. Light soy sauce is a perfect vegetarian substitute for the fish sauce used in Thai and Vietnamese recipes. Heat frying pan or wok over high heat. When hot, add oil. Swirl to coat bottom of pan. Add the chili peppers (if desired), one half of the scallions (save other half for garnish) and the shallots. Fry until shallots are translucent. Add rice, grated carrot and pineapple. Mix well with onions, shallots and oil. Fry, stirring occasionally until rice takes on a pearly sheen. Add soy sauce and half of lime juice and stir well.

For an ovo-vegetarian version: Clear a hole in the rice to expose the bottom of the pan. Crack an egg into the hole and scramble vigorously. When egg starts to set, mix thoroughly with rest of rice mixture. Continue frying until egg is thoroughly cooked. Remove chili peppers and serve rice in a bowl, garnished with remaining half of scallions and cilantro or mint leaves. Serves: 4
