Tofu Pineapple Skewers

My Tofu Pineapple Skewers is a summery dish perfect for when you need to get dinner on the table ASAP.


Skewers are a classic summer staple, and summer is BBQ season. So that means skewers are a BBQ staple, right?


But then some people (me) would argue that barbecues shouldn't be kept to just one season, so that means BBQs and skewers shouldn't just be a summer staple and can be eaten all year round right?


Right???


I'm honestly just looking for an excuse to make these tofu pineapple skewers anytime I want to because they're so good. Easy, light, and healthy, yet still super flavorful and satisfying. Yummy in my tummy, and something my whole family loves.


I'm a big fan of pineapple by itself. Again, a definite summer staple. Pineapple is even more delicious when cooked, the sugars caramelize and it helps to keep these skewers juicy and feeling tropical! They taste amazing sandwiched between the marinated tofu and red onions. Cook them juuuuust right and you'll get an amazing sweet and savory flavor combo.


The summer months are coming pretty soon so you better have this tofu pineapple skewers recipe bookmarked for later.


Or why wait, really? I'm not going to.


Let the poking begin. ;)
