Hawaiian Glazed Veggies Serves 4 to 6 The combination of vegetables and pineapple in this simple stir-fry makes for a colorful sweet-and-sour dish. Fresh pineapple is best in this recipe; canned just doesn’t taste as good. Since you’re working with intense heat, keep your spatula or wooden spoon moving the entire time this dish is cooking.
