Tofu and Pineapple Stir Fry
I bought a fresh pineapple and wanted to do something other than eat it “as is” because that’s what we usually do. I found this recipe in Carol Vorderman’s Detox For Life. In the book the recipe actually uses tinned pineapple, but Wee G and I agreed that the best part of it was definitely the fresh pineapple. It’s a very basic recipe and garlic and ginger are the only added flavours. I was concerned that it may be bland so I marinated the tofu for a little while in some tamari and apple cider vinegar (as per the stir fry in Vive Le Vegan!) before frying it and then added the tamari/vinegar to the stir fry at the end. It was nice, but still not the most flavoursome meal. I would only make it again if I had some fresh pineapple going spare.
