Ingredients

1 (12 ounce) block extra firm tofu (not silken)

For the tofu marinade:

2 tablespoons sesame oil

2 tablespoons peanut butter

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1/2 tablespoon fish sauce

juice from 1 lime

1 tablespoon honey

2 cloves garlic

For the Peanut Sauce:

4 ounces GO VEGGIE Plain Cream Cheese

1/3 cup coconut milk

1/4 cup peanut butter

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 tablespoon lime juice

1 tablespoon honey

2 cloves garlic

1 teaspoon fresh minced ginger

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 red bell pepper, stem and seeds removed and cut into 1" chunks

1 yellow bell pepper, stem and seeds removed and cut into 1" chunks

1 orange bell pepper, stem and seeds removed and cut into 1" chunks

1 small zucchini, cut into ~1/4" half-rounds

Instructions

To marinate the tofu:

Cut the block of firm tofu into ~1" squares.

Combine all tofu marinade ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine.

Pour over tofu squares and stir gently to cover.

Refrigerate at least 30 minutes, up to overnight.

To make the peanut sauce:

Combine all peanut sauce ingredients in a small food processor and blend until well combined.

Set aside/refrigerate until ready to use.

To assemble the skewers:

If using wooden skewers, be sure to soak them for at least 20 minutes prior to grilling.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Toss bell peppers and zucchini in olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

Thread bell peppers, zucchini, and tofu onto skewers. I ended up having more veggies than tofu, so I had a few skewers that were just veggies. No big deal - just do whatever pattern or ratio of tofu to veggies that you'd like!

Place on grill and cook for ~15 minutes, turning every 5 minutes.

Once cooked, they should have visible grill marks but not burnt. If you find they are getting too charred, turn your heat down.

Remove from grill and serve with peanut dipping sauce.
