“This is a great dish if you are new to tofu. The strong flavours of the marinade and pineapple help hide the tofu taste and the tofu itself crisps up nicely. If fresh pineapple is out of season use tinned instead.”

  2. As a general rule new tofu eaters a minimum of 30 minutes up to overnight, for those used to tofu 10 minutes.
  3. Heat 2 tbsp of the veg oil and when hot add the drained tofu. Stir fry for 5 minutes until crispy on the outside, remove and keep warm.
