  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg extra-firm tofu
  • 2 cups snow peas trimmed
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cups small mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 green onions sliced
Peanut Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced

Method

Peanut Sauce: In bowl, whisk together peanut butter, 1/2 cup (125 mL) warm water, soy sauce, ketchup, lemon juice and garlic. Set aside 3/4 cup (175 mL).

Pat tofu dry. Cut in half horizontally; cut in half lengthwise. Cut crosswise 5 times for a total of 24 pieces. Add to bowl; let stand for 10 minutes. Thread onto 4 skewers.

Meanwhile, in separate bowl, toss together snow peas, tomatoes, mushrooms, oil, salt and pepper. Alternately thread vegetables onto 8 skewers.

Place vegetable and tofu skewers on greased grill over medium-high heat. Close lid and cook, turning once, until tofu is browned and vegetables are tender-crisp, 10 minutes. To serve, drizzle with reserved peanut sauce; sprinkle with onions.

Serve with: Easy Rice
