In the same wok, heat the sesame oil and stir fry the tofu with the mushrooms, soy sauce, green onions, and carrots for about 4 minutes. Stir in cooked rice, pineapple, and egg strips. Heat until everything is heated through.

My husband and I thought this was OK but my picky "if it's not a hotdog I don't want it" kids complained. I added a can of sliced waterchestnuts and sliced bamboo shoots. Next time I'll also add celery and other veggies I have on hand. Read More

Folks you should really review the base recipe not the recipe after you've made lots of tasty modifications to it.;-) The base recipe is very bland but it's perfect to get started with - adding fresh garlic and ginger is a must. I'd also recommend adding a splash or two of rice vinegar. Read More

If you're looking for something to make similar to the Thai recipes this is not it. It was incredibly bland. After spending an hour in the kitchen making this I was so disappointed when I sat down to eat it. We eat a lot of Thai and Indian food and this doesn't come close to what I have had in a restaurant. Don't bother! Read More

It came out very tasty--although I added cashews and bean sprouts and didn't end up putting the tofu or the mushrooms. Also I fried some fresh ginger and garlic in the oil before adding everything else it gave it a more strong flavor. Cooking the rice in the pineapple juice is a great idea! Read More

My favorite recipe on this site!! Even the non vegetarians in my house love this dish aswell. I leave out the eggs and add bean sprouts and water chestnuts. I also added garlic and ginger to the sesame seed oil for the tofu to fry in. Read More

We thought this had no flavor at all. This recipe needs a LOT more of everything besides rice and pineapple. Read More

I liked this recipe but made one slight modification. I added a little curry powder and I think it really helped make the recipe a little more exciting. Read More
