Pineapple Fried Rice with Pork

I've always wanted to make pineapple fried rice and serve it in a pineapple boat! Now that I'm spending more time in Maui, where pineapples are inexpensive, abundant and sweet(!), I've finally done it.

We used to make Saturday morning trips as a family from Toronto to the St Jacob's farmers market near Kitchener/Waterloo and my dad would buy a pineapple to make pineapple fried rice for dinner that evening. As a kid, the presentation of it was so fun and cool to see! Now I realize the process of removing the pineapple while keeping it mostly intact, takes some (read A LOT OF!) patience and work.

Serves 4 people

4 cups day-old sushi rice or jasmine rice (Chinese white rice), leave it out for 2 hours to bring to room temperature
1 Chinese sausage or BBQ pork, diced
1/2 red onions, diced
3 green onions, diced
3 eggs
1 ripe pineapple, core removed and cut into chunks
1-2 tbsp fresh pineapple juice
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1/8 tsp sugar
1 tsp sea salt

Granola with Dark Chocolate Drizzle

Dry ingredients:
2 1/2 cups of quick oats
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/8 cup flax seed
1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup almonds, chopped up
1/4 cup dried cranberries

Liquid ingredients:
3/4 cup real maple syrup
1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
1/8 cup grapeseed oil

Chocolate drizzle:

50 gr dark chocolate

Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl, combine and whisk the liquid ingredients. Pour the mixture into the dry ingredients and combine well, using your hands to toss and mix.

Set the oven at 300F, place the granola on tin foil over the baking pan spread around evenly. Bake for 45 min until the granola is lightly browned. Remove from oven and cool for 30 min.

Melt the dark chocolate for 20 seconds in the microwave, add a little bit of milk for drizzle consistency and pour over the granola. Let it cool for 10 min before eating.
