Pineapple Ginger Tofu

in #recipeslast year

This tofu is the perfect pair to vegetable fried rice. It’s got everything you could want out of a tofu marinade, with a combination of sweet, salty, and just a little spicy and a slight zippy tanginess.

The tofu is great, but honestly this marinade is so fantastic that I wanted to drink it up all on it’s own. In the future, I will definitely be using this marinade on roasted vegetables, tempeh, and pretty much anything I can get away with marinating.



  • 1 block extra firm tofu, pressed and diced
  • 3 tablespoons pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon ground marjoram
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  1. Combine 1 tablespoon of the olive oil with pineapple juice, soy sauce, garlic salt, ginger, onion powder, ginger, turmeric, marjoram, and lemon juice. Whisk to combine.
  2. Pour marinade on to the tofu, stir to coat evenly. Marinate for a minimum of half an hour.
  3. In a large skillet, heat the remaining olive oil. Add tofu to skillet and cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Allow to sit in the pan with the heat off for 5 minutes before serving.

This dish looks beautiful and tasty)

Tofu is one of my favorites. Especially with soy sauce. oh my!

Looks and sound tasty :)

This sounds so good. I can never make tofu taste good. Well almost never. I eat tofu usually once every two weeks so I really need a marinade recipe. This one sounds like a good place to start

The marinade is important, and the longer the better for marinating. But I also found in my tofu journey, that it is important to cook it until it is crispy, then allow it to sit in the hot pan with the heat off for at least five minutes for the perfect texture.

Wonderful vegan recipe, thanks for sharing.

Not so familiar with tofu, but it looked tasty! I will try the marinade!
