Sweet Spicy Thai Tofu Skewers: delicious and flavorful Thai skewers using tofu, veggies (zucchini, onion, tomatoes and bell pepper) and homemade sweet-spicy Thai-basil sauce. Fingerlicking good, vegan and glutenfree.
Happy Friday You’ll !!! Hope you had a nice week and I’m so looking forward to the weekend and noshing on these Sweet Spicy Thai Tofu Skewers with some Thai ice tea.
My week was a mix of blah in the beginning to absolutely crazy until yesterday … and today I’m absolutely excited as I get to share the recipe of these superhit skewers with you.
So, my girlfriends decided to throw an impromptu Girl BBQ party yesterday and I was asked to get these Sweet Spicy Thai Tofu Skewers on Wednesday night ….
Seriously, my friends think I’m some kinda genie that grants wishes in terms of food 😉
But I guess they know me really well or as my hubby calls it ‘food hoarder’, I confess I always have tons of stuff in our kitchen pantry (as if I’m never gonna go to store ever) and the fridge.
The only thing, I was little scared of was that I don’t have any fresh herbs at home and these skewers needed ‘basil’.
But then these ‘Dorot chopped Basil’ came to the rescue as I always have them in my freezer.If you do a lot of cooking and like the smell of that fresh herb in your food, then Dorot is your BEST Friend !!!
I’m telling you and you can thank me later 😉 they have these clean, cute and pre-proportioned herbs (cilantro, basil, garlic, ginger, etc) all packed in a small little-frozen baggie.
The ingredients can be easily found in most grocery stores:
Phew, what a relief !!! So, here I was on Thursday morning marinating the veggies+tofu with the spice-mix and I’m talking 9 am as the BBQ starts at 11 am, yep, that’s the chosen time.
I just marinated the whole mix for about 15 minutes but if you have time, marinate them for longer.
Now, for the most fun part “Have you seen anyone grilling on their balcony at 9 am?” (lol)
Yep, that would be me, I just started the grill at 9 am and these cuties were ready to be grilled by 9:20 am.
I just grilled them each side for 2-3 minutes (as the grill was really hot) and keep an eye on tofu as it burns easily.
Once, they were grilled and the Sweet Spicy Thai Tofu Skewers were all ready, I just sprinkled a little bit of lime juice to keep them fresh and juicy.
Just before I could pack them, here’s me doing the very important taste test or breakfast as I say 🙂
The grill marks look really awesome on them and it’s such an easy peasy recipe that can be added to any of your instant or upcoming BBQ parties.
It’s also totally #Vegan and #Glutenree as a couple of my friends are on Vegan+Gluten-Free diet.
So, go ahead and get those grill started and make these delicious Sweet Spicy Thai Tofu Skewers.
Go get these ‘Dorot’ products to help you in your next cooking preparation.
With a two-year shelf life, you can have fresh Garlic, Onions and Herbs year round with the simple “pop” of the tray.”
I got mine from ‘Trader’s Joe’ in the frozen food aisle (picture below) but definitely, go to their site here -> Dorot <- and find your local store.
