Pineapple Ginger Fried Rice

Last night I decided to try a new recipe with the leftover rice that I had from our stir-fry a few days ago. We love our stir-fry’s and could eat that pretty much everyday, plus it is a good way to eat a whole lot of veggies. This rice is full of colorful vegetables sauteed in a light pineapple ginger sauce. A great way to use leftover rice and a more than satisfying meal!
