I’m eating this meal as I type up this recipe and I have to say it is so darn good! Adam came home from work and sampled it, and then sampled it again and then again… he declared it undoubtedly blog worthy.
I have been fighting a cold all week and we are heading off for a weekend visit to Adam’s Dad’s house so I was looking to make a quick and easy, clean up my fridge kind of dinner and this recipe popped into my head.
You know a dinner will be good when the ingredients literally make a rainbow.
The secret ingredients here are pineapple (the sweet!), Braggs Liquid Soy Seasoning (the sour!) and for those who like heat, a generous dose of Sriracha sauce. Bragg’s liquid soy seasoning tastes quite different from traditional soy sauce and is definitely less salty as it has no added sodium. It also has 16 amino acids and added protein.
All this comes together to make a delicious, nutritious and easy dinner. This can be served over rice or mixed with rice and rolled into a tortilla for a meal on the go.
