- 1 cup canned pineapple chunks, reserve 1/2 cup juice
- 1 tablespoon lite soy sauce
- 1 clove garlic
- 2 teaspoons minced ginger
- Soak skewers in water for 30 minutes to keep them from burning as you cook the skewers.
- Meanwhile, put the tofu, red pepper, and pineapple chunks in a plastic bag or container with a lid. Add reserved pineapple juice, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger. Marinate for at least 30 minutes.
- Drain, reserving marinade to baste. Thread the tofu, red pepper, and pineapple on the skewers.
