Tofu Kebabs - Recipe


Today for dinner I decided to make something a little different for the Prawn and I... The Dukan Diet's tofu kebabs found on page 230.

Now I had never eaten tofu before and wasn't sure what to expect in terms of taste or texture.

INGREDIENTS:

1 lbs firm tofu cut into cubes
1/2 red pepper
1/2 yellow pepper
1/2 orange pepper (all cut into cubes)
1 large zucchini, sliced
1/2 cup button mushrooms, cut in half (if you choose)
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp grated fresh ginger
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 small fresh chili pepper, finely chopped

Now the book says to kebab the vegetables and then to make the marinade and then marinade everything. I did it this way and did not find the marinade to be very successful so I will suggest marinading the vegetables and then threading them on the skewers.



To make the marinade: thoroughly combine the soy sauce, grated ginger, the crushed garlic, and chili peppers.

Marinade the vegetables for 30 minutes at room temperature.

Keep the extra liquid after marinading the veggies, cook the skewers on a hot grill or under the broiler, baste often in the extra marinade.

I cooked them on the bbq, I don't know if this cooked the tofu any better or worse than in the oven since I had nothing to compare it to since I had never had tofu before.

Cook for 10 minutes, until the tofu is browned.

I really enjoyed the cooked vegetables in the marinade, as did Prawn. We were both not big fans of the tofu, but it was more the consistency. I cut the tofu cubes very large since I was afraid of them breaking in the bbq... they did not cook thoroughly and the vegetables did not either. But the marinade was really good.

Serve with a tomato salad (which I did not do... but would have been really good to eat with the kebabs actually.)

I'm sure if you like tofu, marinade for long enough and properly, as well as cooking the kebabs fully, this recipe would be a total success.

  1. When it comes to eating tofu the main thing to remember is that it has no taste. You need to add flavour to it! So make sure to marinade it so that it is really yummy!
    Hope you give tofu another chance!
