If you've been lucky enough to visit the Hawaiian Islands, you've probably heard of Spam musubi. It's basically a slice of the processed meat much beloved by locals in Hawaii, on top of a block of equally beloved white rice. It's a popular hand-held snack that's perfect for those picnics on the beach.
Want to experience a taste of the islands but don't like the idea of eating mystery meat? Try this teriyaki-glazed tofu version for a snack you can feel good about. Tofu is a great plant-based source of protein and the glaze provides a flavor punch that doesn’t feel virtuous. For this recipe, I strongly recommend using a musubi maker, or a sushi mold, which creates tightly-packed blocks of rice that won't fall apart when you take your first bite. They're inexpensive and you can find them online or at any Asian market. If you can't get your hands on one, try shaping them by hand, but it could get messy.
