pineapple rice with vegan egg

What’s more impressive for your guests than being treated with yummy fragrant fried pineapple rice with vegan egg in a beautiful pineapple boat? Ever since I was served one like that in Singapore, I have been a big fan.

And I wanted to make one myself. It’s not that much of an effort to make actually! I mean, you have to cut the pineapple anyway, right, why not turn it into a nice bowl? There are a lot of youTube videos on how to make a pineapple boat, like this one here.

I have worked on a pineapple rice with vegan egg I really like for quite a while, and I am very happy with this one. Hope you’ll like it just as much.

An important ingredient here is Kala Namak, a black salt from India and Pakistan. It often looks pinkish and smells sulphuric. That’s what adds the eggy aroma to vegan egg dishes. It is available in Asian specialty stores, organic supermarkets and shops that sell vegan supplies. Of course, it is also available here*

The rice should really have cooled well, best over night, that makes it much easier to process. And also that way it had time to form resistant starch which feeds our good gut bacteria 🙂

If you want to cut the carrot into pretty flowers, you can see how to do it in my Instagram Reel here, or in my youTube video on how to make any food look its best along with lots of other tips.

The pineapple rice goes very well with my soy satay or seitan satay and spicy peanut sauce!
