This marinated tofu souvlaki is a game changer. Serve this one to even the pickiest of meat eaters and even they will admit that tofu can be delicious! After being vegan for a while, Reyhan and I have not stopped exploring the versatility of tofu. Unseasoned tofu could be described as a bit bland. We prefer to think of it as a blank slate. The key to this recipe is being patient with your marinade! We left our tofu and vegetables in the fridge marinating for about 4-5 hours. After a few hours, the flavours really hold up through the cooking process.
Not only is this dish simple and delicious but its also very healthy. Tofu is a great vegan protein source and you can never go wrong with fresh veggies. It can also be a great go-to meal if you’re in need of a fridge dump! If you have some vegetables you need to use up, you can use them for this recipe.
We hope you and your family enjoy these marinated tofu souvlaki skewers just as much as we did! If you haven’t tried our tofu parm yet, we definitely recommend this as well for another delicious tofu recipe!
