What you need to do

  • Place all the ingredients for the herby marinade into a food processor or blender and pulse until combined, but not completely smooth. Set aside.
  • Cut the zucchini, peppers, and onion into large pieces. Cut the tofu into 1 inch cubes.
  • Place the vegetables, including mushrooms and tofu into a large bowl and pour in over the herby marinade.
  • Toss the tofu and vegetables in the marinade until completely coated.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place into the fridge for at least 20 minutes. (Make in the morning for optimal marinating time).
  • When ready to cook, alternate the vegetables and tofu onto a skewer. This recipe will make 6-7 large skewers.
  • To cook the kebabs, place them onto a preheated barbecue or cast iron grill plate on the stove.
  • Grill for 3 minutes on each side over a medium-high heat until heated through and the edges of vegetables start to brown.
  • Serve over a bed of cooked rice or quinoa and garnish with oregano leaves (optional).
