Sizzlin’ Tofu skewers with Sesame Sauce


    Divine Sesame Sauce:
  • 2 tsp ginger, minced
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 3 tsp tamari
  • 2.5 tsp agave syrup
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
    Marinated Tofu & Vegetables:
  • 1 block of tofu (250 g)
  • 1 zucchini
  • 2 bell peppers (yellow, red or green)
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup tamari
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil


    Marinated Tofu:
  • Cut tofu into cubes (1/2 - 1 inch thick).
  • Cut peppers and zucchini into bite size pieces (1/2 - 1 inch long).
  • Combine remaining marinade ingredients (ground coriander, garlic powder, ground ginger and tamari) into a bowl and mix well.
  • Place tofu, peppers and zucchini in wide container, preferably with a lid and pour marinade over, ensuring all pieces are immersed.
  • Marinate overnight, or minimum 1 hour.
  • Add tofu, peppers and zucchini to skewers, alternating for variety of veggies.
    Oven roast or grill the skewers:
    Oven roasting:
  • Preheat oven at 400F/200C, place skewers on a parchment lined baking tray and roast for 20 minutes, flipping halfway.
    BBQ or Grill:
  • Grill tofu on the BBQ or electric grill, allowing each side to brown.
    Divine Sesame Sauce:
  • Add ginger, rice vinegar, tahini, tamari and agave syrup into a blender (or food processor) and blend.
  • Combine canola and sesame oil and add into the blender small batches, little by little to well incorporate. For best results – working with a top loading blender, pour the oil in very slowly and thinly. This is how you can achieve a thick and creamy texture without mayonnaise.
