"Teriyaki and tofu work very well together. The tofu soaks up the sauce so well and when mixed with the pineapple it adds a tangy bite. Serve on a bed of steamed rice!"

1 (12 ounce) package
chopped fresh pineapple
I bought pre-cubed EXTRA FIRM tofu for this. I drained the water and I didn't freeze it for 24 hours, but only till It was frozen , and left it in the fridge. I used Atkins Teryaki sauce, and it wasn't the least bit overpowering. I only added enough sauce to coat and slightly marinate the tofu. I also just layered the pineapples on the top and used about 1/2 cup of pineapple juice just incase. I marinated the tofu for about an hour. The problem with this recipe is, it has a very basic flavor. So try to spice it up a bit with a little seasoning (make sure it will mesh well with the pineapple and teryaki). Tofu taste like whatever it's cooked in so you don't have to use very much of anthing to get a good flavor. I cooked it in the over till it was bubbly, and I mixed it around a couple of times to coat the pineapple. After it was done cooking, I broiled it for about 5 minutes. I placed the tofu and pineapples on teriyaki noodles, and it was FABULOUS. even my dad enjoyed it and he isn't a big fan of tofu. If this recipe did not work for you, you must of done something wrong. Tofu is very hard to work with.
This recipe turned out ok, but 2 cups of teriyaki sauce is definitely too much. One cup is plenty.
This was pretty good. I LOVE teriyaki and the tofu just sucks the flavor up. It was good with rice the first day, then cold on a salad the next day. Thanks.
I was definitely not impressed with this recipe. The flavors sound promising, but the recipe will need to be altered to the point where it would become unrecognizable. If you do want to follow this recipe- I would not marinate the pineapple with the teriyaki. I would use very low sodium teriyaki and use only 1 cup. Use extra firm tofu.
This is one of our favorites! However...we use low-sodium teriyaki sauce (homemade), we marinate the tofu overnight and the pineapple not at all, we drain all the marinade before baking with the pineapple and we serve it with steamed broccoli. I also do this side by side with marinated chunked up chicken for the non-tofu eaters in the group.
This was great. I don't know what the one reviewer's talking about, but I loved it! A bit less sauce would work well too, but just as is works too. Tofu soaks up suaces so well and it was sweet, tangy and spicy. The pineapple is just perfect. If this does not come out right for you then you did something wrong.
My first tofu meal- and it turned out great!
I will prepare this again.
I used crushed pineapple, reduced the teriyaki to 1 cup and cooked the on the stove, adding in 1/2 cup cold water with cornstarch as a thickener. It was okay - tasted like very salty teriyaki tofu. Probably wouldn't make it again.
