Pineapple BBQ Tofu Meal Prep
Pineapple BBQ Tofu Bowls are a vegan meal prep option that you can cook on the grill! Sweet, tangy, and a healthy lunch to stock up your fridge.
- 3/4 cup uncooked quinoa
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 zucchini chopped
- 1 red onion chopped
- 2 bell peppers chopped
- salt & pepper
- 12 oz extra firm tofu
- 1/2 cup barbecue sauce (plus extra to drizzle)
- 8 pineapple rings
Prepare the tofu
Remove tofu from package, draining extra liquid. Sandwich the tofu between two paper towels on a plate. Top with a second plate and place a heavy object, such as a 28 oz can, on top. Press for at least 30 minutes to remove extra liquid.
When the time is up, discard the paper towels and cut the tofu into 3/4 x 3 inch sticks.
Cook quinoa according to package directions.
While quinoa is cooking, heat grill over medium-high heat.
Toss vegetables in olive oil, season with salt & pepper, then grill using a grill plate for 8-10 minutes, turning/stirring occasionally.
Grill pineapple rings for 2-3 minutes per side.
Before grilling the tofu, be sure to grease the grill with a bit of oil (you can brush it on or carefully spray some oil on from a distance- flames will flare up)
Grill the tofu sticks for 3-4 minutes per side, brushing with barbecue sauce several times while cooking.
If you don't have a grill plate, consider cooking the vegetables on skewers.
You can skip grilling the pineapple to save time.
You can also save time by omitting the quinoa and serving in a tortilla/wrap
