Awesome even with canned pineapple. I used 2 green onions, reserving a portion of the green for garnish and the carrots were julienne cut. Leftover brown and wild rice blend was used. The ginger adds the perfect seasoning. The colors make a beautiful presentation. Made for Aussie Swap.
I love this stir-fry! I had to try this, I went to the store just to get the fresh pineapple and bean sprouts to try this recipe, being a huge stir-fry fan I can say this is a fantastic and oh so simple recipe to put together but has lots of flavor, only fresh pineapple will do for this recipe, and do try to use basmati rice! thanks for sharing Leslie!...Kitten:)
