Delicious grilled skewers with pineapple and tasty tofu in a fine marinade, perfect for grilling.

Grilled tofu pineapple skewers on rice

Grilled tofu pineapple skewers on rice are a fine thing. Right now I’m in barbecue fever and always looking for new recipes. Once again I thought of pineapple, which is excellent on the grill. Fruit on the grill is totally underrated from my perspective, and I’ll be experimenting with it more in the coming weeks as well. The summer means it currently very well with us and I look forward to many more barbecues with fine vegan dishes. But now we want to fully concentrate on our delicious skewers.

Let’s take a closer look at this wonderful recipe for a moment. We’ll start with the skewers, which are made with pineapple and tofu and coated with a delicious homemade marinade. They are served with rice or cauliflower rice. Of course, if you want to omit the garnish altogether, that’s no problem either.

The marinade consists of ketchup, paprika powder, garlic granules, oregano, chili, ginger and a sip of olive oil. This is all stirred together until a creamy mariande is formed. But now we first prepare the barbecue skewers by alternating pineapple and tofu on each skewer. They are then brushed heavily with marinade and are just waiting to go on the grill. That’s all, because once again it’s a simple, quick and delicious recipe for warm summer days!

TIP: If you don’t have natural tofu at home, you can always use a smoked tofu, that will also work without any problems. Another little tip for pressing tofu. I’m a big fan of professional tofu presses, like this one. Previously, I always used hand-pressed kitchen towels, which honestly didn’t work very well.
