This tofu in pineapple sauce is savory, sweet and a bit spicy! It reminds me of tropical weather and pairs well with a side of iced coconut water.
I’ve always loved a great sweet and savory tofu but adding a tropical twist is genius. Make this for a loved on and watch them fall in love with this dish AND you!
Tips and Substitutes:
Taste your pineapple and see how sweet it is. Adjust the amount of maple syrup depending on how sweet your pineapple is. You can always adjust sweetness after sauce is done as well.
Don’t have lemons? No problem! Try apple cider vinegar instead.
I know 1/4 cup sriracha seems like a lot but it ended up being very mild. This is something you can also adjust at the end or wait until the end to add to taste.
Gluten-free? Use tamari instead of soy sauce.
Add an extra tropical vibe by adding cashews into the mix. They also add texture and make it extra delicious! Add them at the very end when mixing the tofu into the sauce.
