Veggie Skewers

Vegetables are just so pretty! Am I right? I like this recipe because you can use your oven if you don't have a BBQ!

Y
Yes, I'm right :)

Ingredients:
Serves 4-6
  • 1 block extra firm tofu, drained, sliced down the width, cut into squares, and then each square halved to form triangles
  • 2 red bell peppers, washed, cored, seeded, and cut into 1 inch long pieces
  • 1 green zucchini squash, washed, cut widthwise into small circles about 1 centimeter thick
  • 1 lemon
  • 6 wooden or metal skewers. (I purchased bamboo skewers from my local Whole Foods.
Directions:
  1. Place cut tofu on a baking dish sprayed with non-stick olive oil spray. Squeeze lemon juice on top.
  2. Put baking dish under broiler for 10 minutes. 
  3. Remove tofu from broiler, flip so the reverse sides are facing up, and add remaining vegetables.
  4. Cook under broiler for additional 5 minutes until vegetables just start to brown.
  5. Remove from oven, and when cool enough to touch, place broiled ingredients one by one on the skewers. My pattern went like this: tofu, red pepper, zucchini. Feel free to cater to your mood!
  6. I served these over a bed of mixed greens with tangy bbq sauce on the side. I'd love to hear what you'd do!
