Sweet and Spicy Tofu Skewers

4 servings of 3 skewers per person


2 teaspoons sriracha

½ cup tamari or coconut aminos (soy sauce substitutes)

2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup

2 tablespoons cider vinegar

1 (16-ounce) package extra-firm tofu, pressed, sliced into 1-inch cubes

1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped into 1-inch pieces

1 red onion, sliced into 1-inch pieces

1 cup white mushrooms, sliced into 1-ich pieces

1 medium-size zucchini, sliced into 1-inch pieces

Whisk together the sriracha, tamari, maple syrup, and cider vinegar in a bowl. Put the tofu in the bowl and stir around until the marinade has coated both sides. Place in the refrigerator to marinate for 15 minutes, stirring halfway through.

Preheat a grill between 400 and 450°.

Assemble the skewers, alternating between the tofu and vegetables.

Grill the skewers for 5 minutes on each side, until or until brown slightly. Alternately, saute the skewers in a skillet over medium heat, with a tablespoon of water or as needed, until browned on each side. Serve immediately.
