Ham & Pineapple Rice

After making pizza the other evening (https://suhancock.wordpress.com/2013/09/25/easy-pizza-from-under-25p-per-portion/)  I had half a tin of ham and half a tin of pineapple left (I was good and only made enough pizza for 2 portions)

Here’s what to do with the leftovers:

You will need: (serves 2)

100g rice

100g ham (or bacon)

100g drained tinned pineapple (keep the juice)

1 onion (we prefer red)

1 garlic clove

Chinese 5 spice (or mixed herbs if you prefer a Mediterranean flavor)

Frozen Peas & Sweetcorn ( optional – about a handful of each)


Chop and gently fry the onion and garlic in a little oil until soft.

Chop the ham or bacon and add to the onions (heat until cooked if using raw bacon)

Add the rice and about 100ml water and simmer until the rice has absorbed the water (for speed you can cook the rice separately while cooking the other ingredients.

Add the pineapple juice, peas and sweetcorn (about a handful) and continue to simmer until absorbed by the rice adding more water if required until the rice is cooked and fluffy.

Add 2tsps Chinese 5 spice (or herbs if preferred) and mix well

Serve and hopefully enjoy
