  5. 2 carrots, cut into thin sticks
  6. 1/2 red bell pepper, cut into thin sticks
  7. 1/2 cup frozen peas

  • I like the Thai pineapple fried rice best with left-over rice from the day before. So cook the rice according to the instructions on the package and store it in an air-tight container in the fridge until you use it. Cook the frozen peas for about 7 minutes.
  • In a large pan, heat the oil and sauté the onion for about 3 minutes. Then add the garlic, the carrots, and the bell pepper. Cook for 3 minutes.
