Get ready to add these grilled tofu and vegetable kebabs to your favorites summer recipes. The kebab is truly the best way to grill vegetables. With skewers you don’t have to mess with tons of oil, veggies slipping through the grates to their burnt demise, or having to use tin foil and losing out on that sweet char. Your favorite vegetables are grilled alongside tofu, brushed with a melted dairy-free buttery spread and topped with a creamy zesty sauce.

Not only are these a healthy dinner option that is great for both summer and every other season, but this vegetable skewer recipe is easy and can be made in 30 minutes or less. We love having this as a vegetarian friendly option for summer cookouts or BBQs.

Ingredients

Skewers

  • 8 wood skewers, soaked in warm water for 20-30 minutes
  • 1 package of extra firm tofu, pressed with the water removed
  • 1/3 cup melted Forager Project® Buttery Spread
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1 inch by 1 inch chunks
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into 1 inch by 1 inch chunks
  • 1 orange bell pepper, cut into 1 inch by 1 inch chunks
  • 1 red onion, cut into 1 inch by 1 inch chunks
  • 1 container (8 ounces) mushrooms
  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper

Zesty Sauce

Garnish

  • 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped

Prep

Combine all the zesty sauce ingredients in a medium bowl and mix. Set in the refrigerator to chill.

Cut your tofu into 1 inch by 1 inch cubes.

Skewer your vegetables rotating between chopped vegetables and the tofu. You will want to add either the onion or pepper at each end of the skewer so the vegetables do not slide off. Brush skewers with the melted butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Preheat your grill to medium heat. Once warm, add the skewers to the grill and cook for 5 minutes. Brush additional melted butter on top of the skewers, flip, and cook for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are slightly charred and soft.

Remove skewers from the heat. Top with the zesty sauce and fresh chopped cilantro.
