These kabobs can be cooked on a grill or baked in the oven. If you grill, use a low temperature and avoid blackening the food. The marinade is absorbed by the tofu, providing a burst of flavor. Serve it with cooked brown rice or another whole grain on the side.


  • 18 cubes extra-firm tofu (each cube about 1 inch/3 cm), marinated for at least 6 hours (see Tofu or Tempeh Marinade)
  • 12 mushrooms, quartered


Thread the tofu and vegetables tightly on six 10- or 12-inch (25–28 cm) metal or soaked bamboo skewers, alternating each item. Drizzle any extra marinade over the skewers. Cook on an indoor or outdoor grill or put on a baking sheet six inches (15 cm) below the broiler for 10 minutes, turning once. Avoid blackening the food.
