Ingredients

  • 16 oz firm tofu
  • 3 small peaches
  • ½ large onion
  • 2 medium zucchini

Marinade

  • 3 tbsp ginger minced
  • 4 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar unpacked
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • tsp coriander
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • ½ tsp mustard powder

Instructions

  • Combine marinade ingredients. Finely mince ginger and garlic, combine with remaining ingredients, mix and set aside.
  • Drain tofu and pat dry with paper towels, pressing out as much water out as possible.
  • Cut tofu into 1½ inch cubes. Add to marinade and toss to coat. Set aside while preparing remaining ingredients.
  • If using bamboo skewers, soak in cold water.
  • Cut zucchini and peach in 1½ inch cubes. Slice onion into 1 inch pieces and break apart so that you have clusters of 2-3 layers.
  • Turn the tofu pieces in the marinade again. Turn broiler to high.
  • Assemble the skewers, placing 1-2 pieces of tofu per skewer and evenly distribute the other ingredients.
  • Place skewers on a grill pan or foil lined baking sheet.
  • Cook under broiler for 8 minutes. Flip skewers and cook the other side for 3-4 minutes to brown slightly on the other side.
  • Remove from the oven and drizzle with remaining marinade. Serve immediately.

Notes

Variations and Substitutions
  • Feel free to add additional fruits or swap the peaches with another in season fruit. Watermelon, pineapple, nectarines, pears, apples, are all yummy when grilled. 
  • Add any additional veggies that you want to the skewers. Tomatoes, mushrooms, bell peppers and other squashes would be great choices as well. 
  • You can add some heat to the marinade by adding a dash of cayenne pepper or some red pepper flakes.
Top Tips For Making Tofu Skewers
  • Don’t overcook the skewers, or they will dry out. 
  • If you'd prefer, cook these skewers on the outdoor grill!
  • Cut the fruits and vegetables so they are uniform in size. This will allow everything to cook properly and at the same rate.
