Pineapple fried rice

Posted by Balance In Motion in Recipes

This has been a staple in my house for many years. It has changed many times and changes based on what ingredients I have on hand. Don’t be afraid to make changes to accomodate what you have on hand. I have used cashews to replace peanuts. Kale to replace the peas. I don’t like adding egg to my fried rice but if you do…go for it. I love one pot dishes and I love them even more when they are very colorful! I hope you enjoy this too. Its great the next day packed in a mason jar for lunch at work or on the road.

Ingredients:

Coconut oil 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon – may need more

1 pack of organic extra firm tofu drained and cut into 1″ squares or chopped chicken

1 red pepper -diced

1 whole pineapple cut up into 1″ squares

3 cups of cooked brown rice – I like brown basmati

1 bunch of Green onions – chopped

1 bunch Cilantro – chopped

Sriracha – i like costco brand

Soy sauce  – I use wheat free organic Tamari
