Sweet and Sour Tofu Pineapple Boats (V/GF)

Wanna know what my favorite thing to do with pineapple is?

Chopping it in half, gutting out the insides and filling it with dinner! Using the skins of pineapple to serve food with is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

Especially when you leave a little wall of pineapple to munch on along with your meal.

One of my favorite meals to serve in a pineapple boat is my Sweet and Sour Tofu!

It’s my favorite for many reasons. For starters, Sweet and Sour Tofu goes perfectly with the extra pineapple because there’s pineapple already in the dish!

There’s also cubed tofu and bell peppers cooked in a homemade sweet and sour sauce all on top of some basmati rice.

It’s also my favorite because it all comes together in just 10 minutes! It also only takes 10 ingredients to make. Not too shabby!
