Thai Style Pineapple Fried Rice

Thai Style Pineapple Fried Rice


Thai Style Pineapple Fried Rice, an incredible guest recipe by my beautiful friend Tara Coltman-Patel, otherwise known as Tara’s Transformation on social media ❤

Tara has recently returned from a trip to Thailand which spurred the inspiration for this dish! You guys know how special my time in Thailand was when I was travelling so as soon as I saw this recipe on her page, I fell in love and it brought back so many memories!

I’ll let her take it from here 🙂

The concept of pineapple fried rice might be a strange one to get your head around. However, like many other strange combo’s; chocolate and chilli, maple syrup and bacon, courgette and oats … it’s weird but it works!

This meal is a great way to mix things up if you’re getting bored of your usual meals. It’s a total winner on a nutritional level and the mixture of sweet and savoury with a hit of chilli will definitely get your taste buds tingling. 

Ingredients (Serves 1):

  • 1 cup of chopped pineapple
  • ¼ Red onion
  • ½ Pepper
  • ½ Cup peas
  • 2 TBSP sweetcorn
  • 2 Eggs
  • 175g Cooked brown rice (I use instant packets)
  • 3 TSBP Teriyaki sauce
  • 2 TSP Thai 7 spice


1.Finely chop the onion and pepper. In a pan on a low heat, sauté them, the peas and the sweetcorn in the teriyaki sauce and Thai 7 spice for about 7 minutes, stirring it regularly.

2.Mix in the rice and the pineapple and cook for a further 2 minutes.

3.Whisk the eggs together and make a whole in the middle of your rice mixture. Pour the eggs into the whole and begin scrambling the eggs. Mix everything together and hey presto … you have the weird but wonderful pineapple fried rice!


How good does it look, am I right?! Massive thank you to Tara for sharing this beautiful recipe!

I can’t wait to try it myself too! Be sure to check more of her vibrant and delicious meals on Instagram; @Taras_Transformation (but i’m sure you’re following her already 😉 )

Also be sure to tag us both when you re-create this dish so we can both see your creations 🙂

Lot’s of Love,
