First off, sorry for overloading you with posts recently, I’ve had so many ideas of food I want to eat and create that I’ve just been too impatient to only post every few days like I normally do – I’m eating yummy things every day now and I want to share it with you :)
I wanted to use up the rest of the maple syrup that I bought to create the masterpiece that was my pumpkin pie on Tuesday, and I decided that I don’t use nearly enough tofu in my blog, so I would make glazed kebabs! This nearly turned out to be a horrendous mistake, as I got so excited about making them, then couldn’t find kebab sticks anywhere, and in the end I had to use broken stems from a fan I found in a charity shop, but they worked out ok, so I’m happy :)
This is a really yummy dinner, as the sweetness of the maple syrup and all the spices really bring life to tofu, which can be really boring and bland – I bought hazelnut tofu for this recipe as I thought it would suit the deep, spiciness of the marinade, and I’m really not a fan of the unflavoured stuff, it tastes just like rubber to me. I hope you love this recipe as much as I did, and I hope I’ve converted a few non-tofu eaters!
125g of extra-firm hazelnut tofu
2 tablespoons of maple syrup
1 teaspoon of olive oil
Half a teaspoon of cayenne pepper
One clove of finely chopped garlic
1 teaspoon of soy sauce
Assorted veggies (tomatoes, courgette etc.)
- Marinade the tofu in all of the ingredients in a bowl covered with clingfilm for at least 15 minutes, then put onto skewers with some veggies.
- Grill for around 20 minutes each side until golden brown and deliciously yummy looking.
