A note about serious food allergies

You know a thing or to about food and you know that jerk goes with chicken. (Jerk also goes with the guy or gal who stole your parking spot this morning but never mind that.) Not so! The smoky sweet flavors of jerk cannot be bound by one protein… or non-protein. It coats the tofu perfectly here, sitting atop a bed of sweet coconut rice that'll put all your preconceived food notions to shame. Sorry about the parking spot; we were in a rush.
