Pineapple and Black Bean Fried Rice

I loooove fried rice. Toss in any veggie combo and you’re set. Easy, delicious.

My dad had some pineapple slices he was about to throw away because he was sick of trying to eat an entire pineapple himself, so I snatched them up before they hit the trash can and decided to make fried rice. This recipe was really one of those cleaning-out-the-fridge recipes… Just tossing in what I had hanging out in the refrigerator, and it turned out wonderfully.


  • 1 cup cold cooked brown rice
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 cup chopped pineapple
  • 1/2 cup black beans, cooked
  • 2 Tbsp oil that can withstand high heat
  • 2 Tbsp coconut aminos (or any soy sauce or soy sauce alternative you like)
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • pinch cayenne

Heat oil in skillet on medium/medium-high heat (honestly, it depends on whether you have gas or electric stove, I use medium on my gas stove).

Add onion, saute until tender.

Add all remaining ingredients. Toss to combine.

Let sit without stirring for 30-sec to a minute. Stir. Repeat two more times.

Remove from heat, serve, and enjoy.

Told ya, simple & delicious.
