Ingredients

Firm tofu

400 g

Soy sauce

¼ cup(s), (60ml)

Lime juice

2 tbs

Fresh ginger

1 tbs, 3cm piece , finely grated

Fresh red chilli

1 whole, long variety, thinly sliced

Red capsicum

1 medium, cut into 3 cm pieces

Zucchini

1 medium, cut into 3 cm pieces

Eggplant

1 small, cut into 3 cm pieces

Cooked brown rice

250 g

Green shallot(s)

6 individual, sliced

Fresh coriander

2 tbs, chopped

Lime(s)

1 medium, cut into wedges to serve

Oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Wrap tofu in kitchen paper and put on a plate. Put another plate on top and weigh it down using a full can of food. Leave for 30 minutes to drain, pour off the liquid and cut into 16 equal cubes.
  2. Combine soy sauce, 1 tablespoon juice, ginger and chilli in a shallow dish. Add tofu and turn to coat. Cover and place in fridge for 2 hours.
  3. Thread tofu, capsicum, zucchini and eggplant alternately onto 4 wooden or metal skewers (see tip). Lightly spray skewers with oil. Preheat chargrill or barbecue over medium-high heat. Cook skewers for 3-4 minutes each side, or until tofu is golden and vegetables are tender.

Notes

Tip: Pressing the tofu first helps remove the excess water from it, so it can absorb all the flavours from the marinade. Soak wooden skewers in cold water for 10 minutes before using to stop them burning during cooking.
