Grilled Tofu with Pineapple Salsa and Coconut Rice

When you can’t get away for vacation, but still want the feeling of a vacation, this dinner is for you! Better yet, have someone make it for you while you sip a margarita. It’s tropical, refreshing, and perfect for those warm summer nights when you want to change up your go-to meals.

Plus, you simply cannot go wrong with juicy fruit cascading over your dinner plate, especially during a heat wave. This was quite simple to throw together, but still felt like a dish I’d find on the menu of my favourite veg restaurant (only better because it was made at home!).

I’ve never made coconut rice before, but after a quick scour of the internet, I settled on Jaden’s recipe. Only I didn’t have jasmine rice or full-fat coconut milk so I used brown rice and light coconut milk instead. I was a bit worried I’d end up with a “healthy tasting” coconut rice, but it tasted nothing of the sort. It was as creamy and decadent tasting as I hoped it would be. A tiny amount of brown sugar, nutmeg, and toasted coconut really made the flavours pop. Without these it was a bit bland, but with, it’s now a rice dish I’m crazy about.

I’m not sure if you can tell in this photo below just how thick and creamy it turned out. You’ll have to trust me on this one!

I pressed the extra-firm tofu, sliced it into four huge triangles, and brushed oil over all sides with a sprinkle of herbamare. Eric was in charge of grilling the tofu, which didn’t take very long at all. Maybe 5 minutes per side.

We’re both tofu fans and enjoy it plain, but if you think you’d like the tofu spruced up a bit more feel free to use a marinade prior to grilling. We added a bit of BBQ sauce on the side and it was the perfect accompaniment for dipping.

Grilled Tofu with Pineapple Salsa and Coconut Rice

Print, Email, or Text this recipe

Dish inspired by Ashley & coconut rice adapted from Jaden.

Yield: Serves 2-3

For the tofu:

  • 1 package extra-firm or firm tofu (I used Sol-Cuisine organic brand)
  • Cooking oil, for brushing
  • Herbamare or salt, for seasoning

 

For the coconut rice:

  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup dry/uncooked short grain brown rice
  • 1 can (400ml) light coconut milk (yields 1 & 3/4 cups)
  • 2 tsp packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp coconut oil (optional)
  • Sprinkle of nutmeg

 

For the pineapple salsa: (this makes over 5 cups so feel free to make a half batch!)

  • 1 pineapple, cored & diced (makes about 3 cups diced)
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 2 jalapeños, seeded and diced
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 red pepper, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 orange pepper, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 3 tbsp fresh lime juice (1 large lime)
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh mint leaves, minced
  • Red pepper flakes, to taste (optional)

 

1. Press Tofu: Remove tofu from package and rinse with water. Press the tofu for at least 20 minutes following these directions. After pressing, slice the tofu block down the middle, lengthwise to make two halves. Now slice each piece diagonally to make 4 triangles total. Brush each side with cooking oil and then season generously. If you don’t enjoy plain tofu try using a marinade prior to cooking.

2. Coconut Rice: Preheat oven to 300F. Toast shredded coconut for about 8-12 minutes until golden. Rinse brown rice in colander and then place into a medium-sized pot. Add one 400ml can coconut milk (equal to 1 & 3/4 cups). Stir. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat immediately to low. Cover with lid and cook for about 25-30 minutes until most of the coconut milk is absorbed and rice is tender. Remove from heat, keep lid on, and let it “steam” for another 10 minutes or so. Stir in brown sugar and optional coconut oil. Garnish with toasted shredded coconut.

3. Salsa: Meanwhile, add all salsa ingredients into a large bowl, adjusting to taste.  My pineapple was very watery, so I dumped the pineapple into a colander and let the water drain for about 10 minutes prior to using. Feel free to do this too or just leave it as is.

4. Grill tofu: Preheat the bbq grill for about 15-30 minutes (depending on your grill) on high. Turn heat down to medium/low. Carefully, grease the grill with a cooking oil safe for high heat (e.g., canola, sunflower, safflower, or sesame). Grill the tofu for about 5 minutes on each side (this will vary). Be sure not to overcook the tofu or it will be dry.

5. To serve: Spoon coconut rice on a plate and sprinkle with a dash of nutmeg if desired. Add grilled tofu next and then spoon over a generous amount of pineapple salsa. Sprinkle everything with more toasted coconut and garnish with mint leaves. Feel free to serve with a bit of BBQ sauce on the side to spruce up the tofu.

Pineapple isn’t my favorite in savory dishes but this looks too great to not try. And coconut rice is just amazing, my recipe isn’t quite perfect, I think adding the sugar might help it out!
And more love for the Sketchie photo shoot over here.

10 Angela (Oh She Glows) July 9, 2012

I’m usually not a huge fan of fruit in savoury dishes either. I think this one helps that the salsa isn’t “warm”, even serving it chilled would be nice too!
Thanks for the Sketchie love.

I like anything I can make without heating up my kitchen. Last night I made some Gardein chick’n strips for my kids, made a huge salad, & had several bowls of add-ins to choose from, that way everyone got to make their own salad creation. Didn’t heat up the kitchen & everyone got what they wanted!

I like making rice in my rice cooker–helps to reduce heat in the kitchen on these blazing summer days.

Reply

17 Angela (Oh She Glows) July 9, 2012

Everyone raves about their rice cooker…I can’t wait to get one some day! If only I had more storage space in this kitchen. Can you make other things in it besides rice?

Reply

18 Alex @ Brain, Body, Because July 9, 2012

Yes! You can pretty much use it like a crockpot.

I like to mix a grain (any grain!) and a bunch of veggies in the rice cooker, add enough liquid, then turn it on. When it’s done, top with salad dressing and serve with a protein.

Reply

19 Angela (Oh She Glows) July 9, 2012

That sounds SO easy (and fun!). Why do I get so excited about these things? hah. Do you recommend a particular brand? Sorry for all the q’s.

Reply

20 Alex @ Brain, Body, Because July 9, 2012

Ha! I get excited, too.

I bought a Black & Decker rice cooker for about $10-15. The nonstick coating on the inside is starting to scrape off and it sorta leaks a little now (I put it on a plate to catch the liquid), but I’ve uesd it heavily for the past six years.

Apparently you can also bake cakes in them? I’ve never tried it, but am definitely intrigued. It seems more energy-efficient than heating an entire oven. I’ll let you know how it goes!

I love my Zojirushi Stainless Steel rice cooker. I am able to make steel cut oats in the rice cooker because it has a porridge setting. It also has a timer and you can program it to have the steel cuts oats ready when you wake up. My rice cooker plays twinkle twinkle little star when the oats are ready – it’s the best sound and smell to wake up to. I make risotto, rice pilaf, and all types of grains in the rice cooker. I just love it!!!!

Reply

22 Janae @ Bring-Joy July 9, 2012

It’s hard for me to believe that you don’t have a rice cooker Angela! I couldn’t live without mine, mostly because I’m hopeless when it comes to cooking rice on the stove (it doesn’t help that I have 4 little distractions!). I like how I can dump ingredients, push a few buttons, then forget about it until it’s time to eat. Yes, you can make other grains in the rice cooker.

I made this last night and WOW. We love love loved the coconut rice! Also the first time I tried grilled tofu and you have me converted. I marinated mine for an hour in a combo of soy sauce and orange juice- yum :) My brother and I both adored this dinner.

Also, I wanted to tell you how much I love your dinner recipes for two. I am always cooking for just two; either myself and my brother or my boyfriend. It’s so nice to check the blog and see a complete meal for two that I can easily prepare. I shouldn’t live off your cookie recipes alone… though I might try!

First off i LOVE your blog!! it is the only one i cook from now, and i have LOVED all of your recipes! i saw this one and just had to try it!!! I love coconut, i love pineapple, and i love trying your recipes so…why not right?

good news: pineapple salsa was great!!
bad news: i tried cooking the rice 4 different times in the last week or so when you posted this. and all 4 times terribly unsuccessfully:( Not sure if cooking something 4 times failing each time is determination or foolishness…;)

either way if you have any suggestions i’d LOVE to hear them **oh and i have cooked rice before…um….only 2x to be exact…;) both were a few weeks ago making your amazing butternut squash burritos, and the rice turned out great, so… not sure what my deal is… :(

Hey Erin!
I’ve had problems cooking rice in the past too and I discovered that it’s crucial to cover the pot with a lid while cooking. Are you leaving the lid off by chance? Other than that I’m not sure why it wouldn’t be turning out.
Glad you enjoyed the pineapple salsa!

I made this with quinoa instead of rice and marinated our tofu in a sesame teriyaki sauce. The salsa is AMAZING!!!! We barely had room for the entree after dipping tortilla chips in the salsa once it was prepped. I love the fresh jalapeno’s in there – used two from my garden.

I made this tonight hoping to bring on some spring weather after a long hard Michigan winter. It is sooo good, and I know we’ll be eating it many more times before next winter comes along. I had a little trouble getting the coconut rice cooked all the way; I had to keep adding water until it was cooked. Finally realized that I had used long-grain rice instead of short grain….oops! It all worked out and it was great once it finished cooking, haha! Next time I’ll try the quinoa! It was my first time making tofu like this; definitely a keeper recipe! Thanks!

I made this for the first time tonight – but I made it with grilled lemon chicken instead of tofu since my husband isn’t a fan. I also added an avocado to the salsa which turned out fantastic – but the hit from this recipe has to be the coconut brown rice! I just bought a huge bag of brown rice from Costco, but have to admit, it can sometimes taste so bland. This is definitely a recipe I’ll be keeping around – don’t forget to grate the fresh nutmeg on top, it really hits it home!
Thanks for the great recipe!

For the marinade I used parsley, lemon juice (1) , nutritional yeast (1 tbsp), garlic (2), olive oil (2 tbsp), hemp seeds (1 tbsp) and a bit of ground ginger and salt…blended everything then added some cashew butter until it was thick enough. Perfect match for this recipe. :)
