Somethings just get better with time.

Take for example cheddar cheese – the longer that stuff ages, the easier it is for us lactose intolerant folk to digest! And, what about our vocabulary? The older we get, the more words we seem to pick up – or, the better some of us seem to get at navigating Dictionary.com – right?  😀

Y’all wanna know something else that gets better with time? Since y’all asked – why – this Pineapple BBQ Sauce or BBQ Pineapple sauce (kind of like the chicken and the egg scenario, am not quite sure if the pineapple came before the BBQ or vice versa). But, I do know that this is just plain delicious. My daughter loved it so much, she had a mini conniption when she saw me accidently spill a few drops of it on the counter as I was trying to get it out of the blender and use some of it to add some major flavor to the tofu burgers y’all see here.

But getting back to this sauce – with ingredients such as pineapple juice, pineapple chunks, honey, and tomato paste, it isn’t the neatest sauce to make and enjoy – but, it’s so worth the extra clean-up!

Besides, I was lucky to have picked up some Viva® Towels and Viva® Vantage® Towels from my neighborhood Publix when I was there to pick up the ingredients for this sauce and a block of extra firm tofu for dinner.


And, those Viva® Vantage® Towels were durable and strong enough to have helped me scrub the sauce stains out of the counters, the tile floor, and even the rug over which we ate these tofu burgers. These towels were also smooth enough to help me dry out my blender. But that’s not all, they are so stretchy and absorbent that I use them every time I need to fully drain out a block of tofu as I never seem to have cheesecloth on hand!

  1. So I have to admit that I’ve never actually had a tofu burger…but if I were to eat a tofu burger, this would be it! That sauce. I love a good BBQ sauce, and the addition of pineapple is making my mouth water. A little heat from the Serrano…a little sweetness from the pineapple + honey. You nailed it, Shashi! I wonder if you freeze this, then it wouldn’t be considered a liquid…therefore you can bring it on a plane. You see where I’m going with this one? 🙂

  2. Mmmmm….I am loving it… 🙂 Lovely sharing Shashi. My daughter is going to love this burger. Me and my daughter, are crazy about burger and mostly we will go out to enjoy burger. But after this recipe I think I will try making it at home. The sauce is amazing. 🙂 Pinning

  3. I’ve never had a tofu burger, but these look delicious. The BBQ Pineapple sauce is perfect for grilled food this summer. Thanks for sharing! #client

  4. Shashi, these tofu burgers are the most decieving burgers I’ve ever seen – they do look like some good juicy meat burgers:) Or perhaps, that’s my phone being decieving, eh?:) Anyways, they look fantastic, and along with pineapples, this sounds like a scrumptious deal! Well done!

  5. These tofu burgers look SO SO good, Shashi! I am a big tofu and pineapple fan and love the addition of the pineapple BBQ sauce! I would seriously find an excuse to put that on everything 🙂

  6. “Somethings just get better with time.” SO true! And we also learn to appreciate them more! Oh, the benefits of getting older. Does that mean we get better too, Shashi? I hope so! <3 Meanwhile, these tofu burgers… wow. I know EXACTLY why and how your daughter had a conniption when you dripped some of this sauce! Good thing you had some awesome paper towels to clean up afterward! 😉 Well, whether we all decided on Pineapple BBQ sauce or BBQ Pineapple sauce, let's go ahead and slather it on. I'm ready for the BBQ, Shashi! What should I bring? 😉
    Hoping you have an awesome week (hopefully full of more culinary adventures with your kiddo). Pinning! xoxoxo
