Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the rice

In a small sauce pot, combine the rice and 1¼ cups [2½ cups] water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Fluff with a fork, cover, and keep warm.
While the rice cooks, prepare the stir-fry.

2

Prep the stir-fry ingredients

  • Coarsely chop the pineapple.
  • Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; cut the pepper into ½-inch pieces.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal, keeping the white and green parts separate. Set aside the green parts for garnish.
  • Cut the tofu into ½-inch cubes.

3

Cook the stir-fry

In a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the pineapple, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the bell pepper and white parts of the scallions, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the tofu and cook until warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes.
Transfer the vegetable mixture to a medium bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper. Do not clean the pan.
While the stir-fry cooks, prepare the remaining ingredients.

4

Prep the remaining ingredients; finish the fried rice

  • Crack the eggs into a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper. Using a fork or whisk, lightly beat until just blended.
  • Set aside half the stir-fry blend for serving.
  • Strip the Thai basil leaves from the stems.
  • Using the bottom of a bowl or cup, lightly crush the cashews for garnish.
In the same pan used for the vegetables, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the eggs and cook without stirring until just starting to set, about 30 seconds. Add the rice, vegetable mixture, and half the stir-fry blend and cook, stirring constantly, until the eggs are set and the ingredients are warmed through, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the basil leaves, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the fried rice to individual bowls and garnish with the cashews and green parts of the scallions. Serve the remaining stir-fry blend on the side.
