Pineapple Island Kebabs [Vegan]

If you enjoy recipes like this, we highly recommend downloading the Food Monster App, it's available for both Android and iPhone and has free and paid versions. The app is loaded with thousands of allergy-friendly & vegan recipes/cooking tips, has hundreds of search filters and features like bookmarking, meal plans and more! The app shows you how having diet/health/food preferences can be full of delicious abundance rather than restrictions!

My Pineapple Island Kebabs will transport you to the land of sunshine and cool breezes.

These Island Tofu Kebabs have their tofu (or seitan) and vegetables marinated in a sweet and spicy blend of orange juice, garlic, and ginger. I add pineapple to the veggies on the skewer for an added tangy tropical flavor. When pineapple is grilled, it becomes a whole new thing. So delicious!

Use whatever makes you happy – tofu, seitan, tempeh, mushrooms, zucchini, peppers, whatever. I love these served over rice that has red onion and pineapple chunks running through it.

So when you fire up the grill today, tomorrow, or any day, make my Island Tofu Kebabs. They’ll make any day feel like you’re on a tropical island summer vacation. Enjoy!

Pineapple Island Kebabs [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan






For the Marinade­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­

  • ½ cup fresh orange juice
  • ¼ cup agave nectar
  • 1 Tbs. gluten-free tamari
  • 1 Tbs. brown rice vinegar
  • 3 scallions, white parts, sliced
  • 1 Tbs. fresh ginger, grated or 1 tsp. ground
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

For the Kebabs­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­

  • 1 block extra-firm tofu, pressed and drained
  • 2 zucchini, cut into rounds
  • 1 large red onion, cut into chunks
  • 24 fresh pineapple chunks or 1-15 oz. can pineapple chunks, drained
  • 2 Tbs. canola oil


  1. Combine all the ingredients for the marinade. Cut the tofu into cubes. Have all your other vegetables and fruit prepared. Place the tofu cubes into one storage bag or bowl and place the fruit and vegetables in the other. Add half the marinade into each of the storage bags or bowls. Make sure all the tofu and vegetables are covered in marinade. Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour; the longer the better.
  2. While the tofu and vegetables are marinating, soak your bamboo skewers for at least 30 minutes so they won’t burn on the grill.
  3. When you are ready to cook, place the tofu and vegetables on the skewers in whatever pattern you like. I like to use the zucchini rounds as bookends. I usually follow a pattern similar to this: zucchini, tofu, pineapple, onion chunk, tomato, onion chunk, pineapple, tofu and zucchini. This way you get 2 pieces of each item on each skewer.
  4. Heat the oil in a grill pan over medium-high heat. Place 4 (or however many fit on your grill pan) kabobs on the grill pan and let cook until the tofu and veggies brown, about 5 minutes each side. Turn the kabobs carefully to make sure they cook on all sides. Serve with sides.

When Rhea became vegan, there were no places in her Bronx neighborhood to eat so she had to learn to cook, mostly by watching TV cooking shows, especially Christina Pirello and Rachael Ray.  That led to the creation of The "V" Word website which focuses on vegan versions of favorite, familiar foods. Rhea has written several e-cookbooks which are available on her web site. It is Rhea's hope that she can spread the "V" Word to bring more compassion into the world and it is her dream to become the vegan Rachael Ray.
