Pineapple Fried Rice
With the weather warming up, we are feeling tropical vibes!
Fried Rice is an easy go to weeknight meal and served in these sweet mini pineapples it’s sure to please the fussiest of eaters.
You can supercharge your rice by cooking it in bone broth and always make extra as it never goes astray.
It’s also a great way to use up leftovers, so feel free to add in extra’s (corn, peas, grated carrot, chicken, prawns, bacon etc).
