Fried Tofu and Pineapple Brown Rice

Yummy flavors blend together in this scrumptious stir fry creation.
What is more perfect than a sweet and savory meal that can be made in minutes?
A stir fry is always an easy hunger fix. One could throw anything in the skillet and lunch/dinner is quickly done to the tune of three feel-good songs (and a few dances).
I love ordering pineapple fried rice with tofu whenever seen on a menu. It's an incredble melding of sweet, juicy pineapples and crispy tofu (usually cute little squares) surrounded in seasoned veggies and brown rice. Although I didn't have green peas, broccoli, and carrots, the mushrooms and onions provided great contrast to the pineapples and tofu. And sesame seeds are a much appreciated substitute if peanuts are not on hand.
