Desert Island Ingredient (and why)

I have an undying love for tofu, in all its forms. Assuming I can harvest sea salt from the ocean, grow citrus and olive trees in the hot climate for juice and oil, and fashion cooking implements from hard objects, I’d say that’s my go-to ingredient. It takes on any spice or sauce you add, so I’ll never get bored.
