Pineapple Fried Rice Wrap

Serves 4 45 minute prep time

Pineapple Fried Rice Wrap

I’m no stranger to using the previous night’s dinner to make a great lunch. Growing up we used to have “must-go’s” night—meaning everything in the refrigerator had to go! This called for some creativity and fun meals. Stir-fry is one of my favorite easy go-to meals and makes for great stuffing for wraps and rolls the next day. This Pineapple Fried Rice is hearty and full of salty sweet flavor that can easily be turned into a fun lunch box meal.
