To make these vegan tofu skewers, you’ll start by making the tofu marinade by adding the ingredients to a saucepan and simmering until thick and flavorful.
It’s sweet, tangy, sticky and with a bit of spice, just like a good marinade should be!
Then, place the ingredients for your vegan skewers in a dish and cover them with the marinade sauce, making sure they are well coated. You will need to wait at least two hours for the tofu and vegetables to absorb all the delicious flavors of the sauce.
Then, you will assemble your vegan skewers by alternating tofu, peppers and mushrooms on a skewer.
If you have leftovers, vegan barbecue tofu is delicious tossed into a salad or in a wrap with a few extra veggies.
This easy vegan recipe is perfect for anyone who wants to make tofu ahead of time. You can let the tofu marinate overnight and grill it the next day before serving it on your BBQ.
Remember, if using wooden kebab skewers, soak them first.
Tofu is an excellent source of protein. As tofu is a complete protein, this means that it contains all 9 essential amino acids. It’s one of the best sources of vegan protein you can have.
However, tofu is well known for its high water content, so you’ll get the best consistency when the water is squeezed out of the tofu before marinating it. You can do this by using a tofu press or two plates and pressing evenly and slowly, being careful not to press it too hard so that it cracks. Some tofu also release more liquid when frozen first. You will find that these techniques make the tofu firmer and crispier.
Since tofu is great at absorbing flavor, marinating tofu is a great way to cook it, and this vegan barbecued tofu kebab recipe is definitely a great way to eat tofu.
