Vegan Thai Fried Rice

Vegans and Vegetarians? There's definitely a difference. Vegans by far, as far as I know, I read up as well, do not consume eggs, daily products or any other products derived from animals. Vegetarians on the other hand, I am sure you know they are meat free (Malaysian Vegetarian Spaghetti, Brinjal Curry, Pineapple Rasam, Spicy Brinjal Vegetarian, Potato Stir Fry, Cauliflower Curry & Coconut Vegetable Stew).  Some vegetarians don't mind eggs, others stay clear from eggs, quite confusing isn't it, I know, nevertheless, not our problem anyway, lets not worry about what other people eat or not (Vegetarian Noodle Soup, Dhal Vegetable Soup, Tapioca Stir Fry, Yogurt Vegetable CurryMaggi Goreng Mamak, Spaghetti Poached Egg & Vegetarian Nyonya Laksa). For a change, instead of rolling out a vegetarian dish, I decided I should also do vegan. No other vegan, but Thai vegan. Thai food as I have already told you before, is not an alien to me (Thai Red Prawn Curry, Tom Yum Noodle Soup, Thai Sea Bass, Thai Papaya Salad & Thai Fish Style). To cut short on my talking time and getting you all bored, this is the Vegan Thai Fried Rice (Nasi Goreng Tom Yum). Pineapple, red chillies, lemongrass, ginger, onion, Thai betel leaves and peanuts (Thai Green Vegetable Curry, Mee Siam Vegetarian & Tom Yum Soup Vegetarian).

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.
