A recipe that’s terrific for a weekday supper or when friends come over on the weekend. Tofu is probably one of the easiest things to cook on the BBQ – you can’t really miss, actually. Serve the brochettes with a green salad, rice or vegetables en papillote, and don’t forget the peanut-cranberry sauce, which makes all the difference. You don’t have to be vegetarian to love this dish!

Steps

  1. For the marinade
    Mix all the marinade ingredients in a large container with a tightly fitting lid. Set aside.

  2. For the brochettes
    Add tofu, mushrooms, peppers and zucchini to the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

  3. To cook brochettes
    Preheat BBQ to high setting. Oil the grill.

    Drain tofu and vegetables, reserving marinade for the sauce. Thread tofu and vegetables onto the skewers, alternating. Grind fresh pepper over skewers.

    Turn BBQ heat down to medium. Cook brochettes for about 10 minutes, turning several times or until tofu is nicely grilled. Set aside and keep warm.

  4. For the peanut sauce
    Bring remaining marinade to a boil in a pan. Add water, peanut butter and dried cranberries. Simmer gently for 2 or 3 minutes or until sauce thickens. Add a little water to thin sauce if necessary.

  5. Garnish brochettes with green onion and coriander. Serve with a crunchy salad.

If it’s not warm enough for a BBQ, you can use a grill pan  to make the recipe indoors.
