  • 3 Green Onions aka Spring Onions
  • 1 small Carrot
  • 1.4 ounces Cabbage
  • 2.5 ounces Pineapple chunks
  • 2 Tablespoons Oil or coconut oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Ginger + Garlic *see Notes
  • 1 Tablespoon Rice Vinegar or white vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Sugar
  • 2 Teaspoon Chill Sauce
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup uncooked Rice or about 3 cups cooked rice


  • Prepare your fresh ingredients first, by washing them. Then slice the spring onion (keep some of the green stalk slices aside to use as garnish) and peel and cut the carrot small and chop the cabbage. If you use a fresh pineapple, cut off the outside of the pineapple, discard the core and cut your pineapple into bite-size chunks.
  • Add the oil to the wok and heat up. Once hot add in the spring onion bulbs slices and cook for a minute. Then add the carrot and cabbage pieces. Cook and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Then add the Ginger Garlic paste and stir fry the whole content for another 2 minutes.

  • In the meantime mix together the vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, chili sauce, and salt to create the stir-frying sauce. Continue adding in the pineapple chunks to the wok and make sure that your wok is hot, so that the pineapple pieces get a bit cooked while frying.
