Thai-style sweet and spicy pineapple and ground turkey fried rice! This is a great way to use up day-old rice and stores great as leftovers! There is also some chili garlic sauce mixed in for a kick of spice!
I’m a fan of pineapple in fried rice, and pineapple on pizza! I know it’s not a popular opinion but I just love the sweetness it adds to savory dishes.
This dish is a quick and easy recipe is you have leftover rice and extra pineapple to use up! The veggies I used in this dish was bell peppers, onions and green beans! You can also use peas and carrots if desired.
