Vegan Thai Fried Rice

Vegan and vegetarian. Whatever. Both not applicable for me. Though vegetarianism is something for my other half-half once a week. Vegan on the whole is rather a confusing matter to me. Then again, to each their own and of course, sometimes due to health or allergy, I think some people don't have a choice whereas some others choose to be. Whatever again. Thai food on the whole for us? We just so love (Thai Red Prawn Curry). How do we make Vegan Thai Fried Rice (Thai Style Eggplant, Vegan Tom Yum Soup & Thai Vegetarian Tomato Soup)? Simple. Fried Rice? Tell me please? Anyone for the matter can be a fried rice top chef. I have listed the ingredients below, you get them ready and you just do the frying. Vegan Thai Fried Rice! Mouth popping wonder for, in fact all of us regardless whether we are vegans, vegetarians or not.

3 cups cooked white rice
3/4 cup cubed fresh or canned pineapple
Some sliced fresh red chillies
1 lemongrass - shredded/thinly sliced
1/2 inch ginger - shredded/thinly sliced
1 medium size red onion- thinly sliced
1/2 handful of daun kaduk/Thai betel leaves - see pic at Bread Tuna Pizza (or other suitable leafy green veg)
1/2 cup roasted peanuts
Some spring onion - shredded/thinly sliced
4 tbsp of oil
Salt to taste
Heat oil.
Saute lemongrass, ginger and onion.
Add rice.
Season with salt and stir in.
Add pineapple and chillies.
Stir in again.
Lastly combine in daun kaduk and peanuts.
One or two good stirs, dish out and garnish with spring onion.
