2 tablespoons peanut oil
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated or minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup fresh pineapple, diced

2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce (add more if desired)
Salt and pepper, to taste
4 green onions, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon sliced almonds (optional)
In a wok or large pan, heat the peanut oil over medium heat. Add in ginger, garlic and sweet onions, cook for 4-5 minutes or until onion is soft.
Add in the frozen peas and red and green pepper. Continue to cook until the frozen vegetables have cooked thoroughly and the peppers have softened.
