Summer may be “officially” over but that doesn’t mean the BBQing has to stop! I’ve been on a skewer kick lately. For me, skewers are always a favorite at a party because they are simple to put together and are hand held so guests can simply grab one and go.
This was the first time I had grilled tofu on a skewer before and it turned out really well! The marinade is packed with so much flavor, you don’t need to do anything else with your vegetables except add a bit of salt and pepper. The tofu really is the star here. Because tofu is basically a blank slate protein, the longer you marinate the tofu the better. Keep that in mind as you prepare these.
Vegetables (we used peppers, onion, mushrooms and zucchini), cut into large chunks
Skewers (soaked, if you are using wooden skewers)
salt and pepper
Slice tofu into one to one and a half inch thick cubes.
Whisk together all the ingredients for the marinade and place in a medium sized ziplock bag. Place the tofu in the the bag and tightly close the bag. Allow the tofu to marinade for at least one hour (the longer the better), turning at least once.
Preheat your grill to medium heat and grease the grate. In the mean time, carefully slide the vegetables and the tofu onto your skewers. Lightly salt and pepper the skewers then grill them for 5-6 minutes on each side. Baste with extra marinade if desired.
