  • 1½ tbsp sunflower or vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • small bunch of spring onions, chopped
  • 1⁄2 tsp Chinese five-spice powder
  • 400g cooked long-grain rice
  • 85g frozen peas
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp low-salt soy sauce
  • 400g fresh pineapple, roughly chopped into chunks (about 1⁄2 medium pineapple)


  1. 1 Heat 1 tbsp oil in a wok. Add the eggs, swirling them up the sides, to make a thin omelette. Once cooked through, roll the omelette onto a chopping board and cut into ribbons. 

  2. Heat the remaining oil. Add the garlic, onions and five-spice. Stir-fry until sizzling, then add the rice (if using pouches, squeeze them first, to separate the grains), peas, sesame oil and soy. Cook over a high heat until the rice is hot, then stir through the pineapple and omelette ribbons.
