Tofu Skewers

  • 400 g smoked tofu organic
  • 4 wooden skewers

Cilantro Lime Chimichurri

  • 1 bunch of cilantro organic
  • 4 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp dried thyme organic
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano organic
  • 3 tbsp canola oil organic
  • 1 garlic clove organic
  • 1 dried red chili
  • a dash of white pepper organic
  • 1/2 tsp salt


Cilantro Lime Chimichurri

  1. rinse off cilantro and chop it very finely.

  2. peel garlic clove and chop it very finely.

  3. chop the dried chili very finely.

  4. put all the ingredients into a mortar and mix until you got a paste.

Tofu Skewers

  1. cut tofu into chunky big pieces, put them into an airtight container and douse with the chimichurri until all the pieces are covered in the marinade. Close the container and store in the fridge over night to allow the tofu to absorb the marinade.

  2. soak your wooden skewers in tap water for several minutes before you start making the skewers. Line up several tofu pieces on every skewer.

  3. put skewers onto the grill for approximately 30 minutes and don`t forget to turn them from time to time. You can serve the remaining chimichurri marinade as a dip for the skewers.
