Pineapple Fried Rice

I made this pineapple fried rice and Bob said….”I thought there was tofu in this”….he couldn’t even tell it was there and went back for seconds.
I was a little wary about trying Tofu because I wasn’t a fan in the past but now I love it.  It takes on the flavor of whatever you are cooking.  
My only caveat is to make sure you purchase non GMO tofu as most tofu is genetically modified and that’s not good for our bodies.  But organic non GMO tofu is inexpensive and is easily found in most grocery stores.

  • Chop onion and garlic and sauté them with a few drops of oil or a splash of water, starting with the onion, then adding garlic once onion is starting to brown.
  • Break up tofu into crumbles with a fork, add to pan with spices and continue cooking for a few more minutes. Add a splash of unsweetened plant milk if texture is too dry.
  • Set tofu aside and sauté carrot, bell pepper, broccoli and spring onion, then add peas, corn and edamame to the mix.
