Spicy Balsamic Tofu Veggie Kabobs


Confession: I have never been to a Memorial Day Weekend barbeque in my life.

But not going to an outdoor event doesn’t mean you can’t make delicious grilled food indoors. This is a very simple recipe for a fresh, healthy and colorful meal. You can mix and match whatever veggies are your favorites. This makes 8 kabobs. 

Food on a stick is always fun no matter where you eat it. Enjoy!

Grilled Tofu Veggie Kabobs

Ingredients

1 block extra-firm tofu, pressed and drained


2 Tbs. balsamic vinegar

2 Tbs. gluten-free tamari
1 Tbs. vegetable oil
1 tsp. Kosher salt
½ tsp. ground black pepper
¼ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. paprika
2 garlic cloves, minced
¼ cup low-sodium vegetable broth
2 small zucchini, cut into rounds
2 bell peppers, seeded and cut into squares
1 red onion, cut into small chunks
8 cherry tomatoes
Directions

Cut the tofu into cubes. Combine the vinegar, tamari, oil, spices, garlic and broth in a bowl. Marinate the tofu in the mixture for at least 30 minutes. Reserve a bit of the marinade and in another bowl, marinate the veggies for no longer than 10 minutes. While you are waiting, you can soak your bamboo skewers in water for at least 30 minutes so they don’t burn on the grill.


Grill the tofu either on your outdoor grill or in a grill pan over high heat until browned and cooked, about 4 minutes per side. On each skewer, arrange the vegetables in whatever pattern makes you happy. I put 2 pieces of tofu, 1 cherry tomato and 2 pieces of the remaining vegetables on each skewer. I used the zucchini rounds as bookends. Grill the skewers for about 4 minutes on each side until browned and tender but still fresh and crisp. Serve while hot. Enjoy!
The “V” Word: Say it. Eat it. Live it.

    You write: “I have never been to a Memorial Day Weekend barbeque in my life.” Me either…and I have many more weekends under my belt than you.

    Thank you for the recipe/directions for veggie kabobs. If I ever do decide to go to a Memorial Day barbeque…I’ll be prepared. Enjoy your holiday.
