Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine yogurt, lemon zest and juice, oregano (and/or marjoram), garlic, 1 tablespoon oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Transfer 1/2 cup of the mixture to a small bowl and refrigerate until ready to use.

  • Add tofu to the remaining yogurt mixture and stir to coat. Let marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes or refrigerate for up to 1 day.

  • Preheat grill to high.

  • Toss bell pepper and onion in a large bowl with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Thread the marinated tofu, pepper and onion pieces alternately onto eight 8- to 10-inch skewers.

  • Reduce grill heat to medium. Generously oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the skewers, turning once, until the tofu is lightly browned and the vegetables are tender-crisp, 6 to 8 minutes per side. Serve with the reserved yogurt sauce for dipping.

Tips

Make Ahead Tip: Marinate tofu (Step 2) for up to 1 day in the refrigerator; refrigerate yogurt dipping sauce separately.

Equipment: Eight 8- to 10-inch skewers

An oiled grill rack keeps your food from sticking. Once your grill is good and hot, dip a folded paper towel in a little oil, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack.

How to prepare tofu No where on here does it state that the tofu needs to be pressed and drained for 30min-1 hour. If I didn't eat tofu on a regular basis this recipe would be a disaster. Read More
