Fire up the barbecue this summer and grill... some tofu?
(NC) - Nothing spells summer like a good old fashioned BBQ at home with family and friends. Burgers, steaks and hot dogs on the grill are summer classics packed with sizzling taste but they are not always the most calorie-conscious and nutritious meal options. Rather than tossing meat on the barbecue every time, as a delicious and lean way to add variety to your grill, think about using tofu instead.
A delicious and fuss-free recipe created by Sunrise Soya Foods which is perfect for those who are new to cooking with tofu is Tofu n'Sauce Kebabs. This vegetarian version replaces the pork, lamb or beef traditionally used in a shish kebab with Pete's Tofu n' Sauce.
After cutting the tofu, drain the remaining sauce into a bowl and set aside. Skewer the ingredients, alternating between the tofu, peppers, onions and mushrooms, to your own desired combination. You can also use other favourite kebab fixings such as cherry tomatoes or zucchini. Grill the skewers on top of a BBQ or even a Panini grill, brushing the entire kebab with the remaining sauce in the package. Rotate the kebab on the grill until all sides are fully warmed through, approximately 3 minutes each side.
*Can be substituted with Sunrise Extra Firm Tofu marinated in your favourite sauce
