Grilled Pineapple Fried Rice

This rice dish was something I was able to throw together one night, using items I had on hand.  Love it when that happens.

The tofu I used was a packaged, Thai marinated flavor.  Feel free to use any flavor you like, or bake your own.  I was on a mission to make this dish as quick as possible so I used the pre-baked kind.  Nice and easy.

Also, in the spirit of ease and convenience, I used the frozen brown rice you can find at almost any grocery store these days, including Costco.  I separately microwaved 2 bags, and spread the warmed rice out on a large plate in a thin layer to cool.  This is important as the rice can get gooey and clumpy when added to the pan with the other ingredients if not cooled, and the grains somewhat separated.

Make sure to have, as they say in cooking school, your ‘mise en place’ ready (i.e. everything prepared and measured, ready to throw in the pan) as this dish is completed rather quickly.  I served steamed Chinese broccoli alongside this dish.  🙂

This delicious dish isn't technically fried like most "fried rice" because it's not cooked in oil - just water! There is a very small amount of sesame oil in the sauce and that's it! Healthy and tasty un-fried rice!

Instructions
  1. On hot grill or grill pan, cook the pineapple slices about 5 minutes per side. Slice into bite-sized pieces and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, combine tamari, pineapple juice, sesame oil, sweetener and chili paste. Taste to adjust flavors if needed (you may like it spicier, sweeter, etc). Set aside.
  3. In a wok or deep skillet, sauté onion and carrots until soft, adding small amounts of water as they stick to deglaze the pan.
  4. Add garlic and cook another minute.
  5. Add tofu, peas, brown rice, green onion, pineapple and cook, stirring constantly, until warmed through.
  6. Add sauce, and cook a few minutes, stirring often, until sauce is evenly distributed.

  1. I made this last night and it was a hit (as all your recipes are….) I added some fresh ginger, but other than that stuck to your recipe. Thank you for sharing, Shelly!
