Jerk Tofu & Pineapple

Shivangi Rao
Course Entrees, Vegetarian Dishes


  • 1 tbsp refined coconut oil or cooking oil of choice that can handle high heat
  • 1 package of extra firm sprouted tofu
  • Chopped pineapple about 15 pieces or so
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 1/2 cup of Nick’s Jerk Seasoning or any jerk seasoning of your choice


  • Chop tofu into 1-inch cubes.
  • Coat tofu in 1/2 cup of jerk seasoning. Marinate tofu in seasoning for 6-12 hours.
  • Once the tofu is done marinating, heat a large skillet or cast-iron skillet on medium heat.
  • Place oil on the pan and let it coat evenly.
  • Place cubes of tofu on a pan with some space in between each piece. Add pineapple in between tofu pieces on the pan. Everything should have enough room so that it sits on the pan.
  • Using tongs, flip the tofu and pineapple over after 5-6 minutes (they should be browned before you flip).
  • Let the other side cook for another 5-6 minutes. Keep flipping intermittently after that so that pineapples caramelize and tofu becomes browned and crispy on the outside.
  • Sprinkle chopped green onions on top of everything. Serve hot with some red beans & rice, greens, plantains, or any other side of your choice!
