Pineapple Cashew Fried Rice

Fried rice is one of my favorite pantry meals. It comes together so quickly and makes great leftovers for lunch throughout the week. I love the combo of crunchy cashews and sweet pineapple in this one! If you want to add more protein, feel free to add some diced extra-firm tofu or chicken.

1. Heat vegetable (or peanut) oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook for 2 minutes; add garlic and cook for 1 minute.

2. Add red bell pepper, carrots and ginger and cook for 3 minutes.

3. Add cooked rice, tamari, sesame oil and crushed red pepper; stir gently to combine.

4. Add pineapple, peas, cashews and green onion and stir again.

5. Remove pan from heat. Garnish the rice with fresh cilantro. Serve drizzled with sriracha.
