I don’t know about where you live but right now we’re in the height of summer and loving it! Summer is all about fresh food and grilling, and these Marinated Tofu Veggie Skewers are one of our favourite things to make on a hot summer evening! They’re light and fresh, they’re plant-based, and they’re so easy to make.
Skewers or kabobs are so great for the grill in the summertime because they can be prepped ahead of time, and they’re also so easy to customize to your family’s tastes. We love including garden-fresh zucchini, peppers, mushrooms and red onions for colour, but you could also use cherry tomatoes, eggplant, sweet potatoes, or even pieces of corn on the cob!
Adding some marinated tofu gives these skewers a bit of protein and makes them great for your vegetarian or vegan friends of family members. This marinade recipe is very easy to throw together with only a few ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen, and it gives the tofu the perfect flavour!
How to Make Marinated Tofu Veggie Skewers
- Drain and cut the tofu into square chunks about 1.5 inches in size.
- Combine the marinade ingredients in a container and add the tofu pieces. Let them marinate for about an hour (or overnight).
- Soak your wooden skewers in water for 10 minutes before using (so they don’t catch fire!)
- Slice your veggies and slide them onto the skewers with the tofu.
- Grill to perfection in minutes (or use a hot skillet on the stove).
