If the quantity of photos I include in my posts indicates how much I love a recipe, then you can see that I really, really, really love this recipe.
I try not to go overboard on the photos – I usually include just a couple for each recipe – but I had to share four for this one. And really they’re not all that different from one another. And I wanted to include many more.
Tofu can be off-putting, or tofu can be delicious. It’s one of those neato foods that takes on whatever flavor – and often texture – you want it to, for better or for worse. Usually, thankfully, for the better.
So I think it’s kind of funny when people flat-out declare they hate tofu. Except, you know, they haven’t even tried it – in any shape or form.
This one-dish-two-ways meal has been a favorite of ours for awhile now. The delicious teriyaki marinade – made with soy sauce, brown sugar, fresh ginger, and garlic – imparts its sweet, briny flavor whether you marinate chicken or tofu in it.
I make up a batch and pour half of it over chicken and half over tofu. After a good soak in the marinade, my guy plops them on the barbecue (well-segregated, of course) along with fresh pineapple slices. And then we both enjoy an amazing dinner.
