Pineapple Fried Rice

is there anything better than a 10 minute meal that doesn’t involve the words “microwave” “lean cuisine” or “frozen food”? i think not. this meal falls into that category, coming together in under 10 minutes if you’re a fast food chopper. pineapple fried rice is one of my favorite things to order when i go out for thai food, but until recently, it was another one of those “i don’t dare attempt at home” sort of meals. that is, until i stumbled upon this recipe. 

there’s something about the smell of soy sauce, curry, and sautéed garlic that makes a kitchen feel warm and cozy, isn’t there? it’s like the spicy, takeout version of a freshly baked batch of chocolate chip cookies.

i followed brooke’s recipe pretty much to a tee – but i used chicken broth instead of vegetable, and added way more curry powder than her recipe called for. i also omitted the coconut (i hate coconut). other than that, her recipe is pretty much foolproof. you can’t go wrong.
