10 oz, florets (about 4 cups)

firm tofu

28 oz, rinsed and drained

powdered peanut butter

6 Tbsp

4½ Tbsp

ketchup

3 Tbsp

white miso

3 Tbsp, (low-sodium)

fresh lime juice

Instructions

  1. Soak eight 10-in bamboo skewers in a shallow dish of water for at least 20 minutes (or use metal skewers).
  2. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil over high heat. Add salt and radishes to pan; cook 5 minutes. Add broccoli; cook 1 minute more. Drain in a colander; run vegetables under cold water until cool to the touch. Drain well; blot with paper towels.
  3. Blot tofu blocks dry with paper towels; cut each block into 12 even cubes.
  4. To make sauce, stir powdered peanut butter and water together in a medium bowl to form a smooth, loose paste. Add ketchup, miso, lime juice, soy sauce, Sriracha and oil; stir to combine.
  5. To make kebabs, thread 2 radish halves, 2 broccoli florets and 3 tofu cubes on each skewer.
  6. Heat a grill to medium-high heat. Off heat, brush kebabs with sauce on one side and lightly coat with cooking spray. Place on grill, sauce side down; cook 2-3 minutes. Brush other side with sauce; flip and cook 2-3 minutes more.
  7. Remove from grill and brush with extra sauce; sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving. Serve any additional sauce on the side for dipping.
  8. Serving size: 2 kebabs plus 1 Tbsp sauce
