Tofu is amazing! However, not by itself. To me, the stuff straight out of the package is somewhat disgusting. It deserves to be baked, fried, broiled, sauteed and blackened.
I love garlic but when cooking with it there is a fine line between getting it crispy and burning it. Make sure to keep the heat at a medium-high temperature and be sure to keep stirring it when cooking.
I had some fresh basil and cilantro that on hand so I decided to toss it in the rice. The result was YUM!
I have made coconut rice in previous recipes on this blog. If you try just one, please let it be this recipe. The pineapple and cilantro add just the right amount of complementing tastes to make this dish memorable.
Here in Southern California, zucchini and summer squash are always available. If you can’t find any in your area you can substitute another vegetable such as broccoli, carrots and/or cauliflower.
Regulars to this site have probably noted my love of broccoli and pasta! However, when the two are melded together it is simply heavenly.
This recipe comes together relatively quickly but it uses a few pans so there is a bit more cleanup. (It’s worth it!)
If you are a fan of broccoli let me hear you say “Hallelujah”!
