Tofu and vegetable skewers with peanut butter sauce | Recipe | Vegan

Here comes another recipe, that isn’t really a recipe!!!

I guess i should just make all of these “recipes” into a sort of vegan summer food series. They are simple and quick to make and perfect in summer or when it is warm weather… or in actuality, they are perfect whatever the weather 🙂 This week i also ate gnocchi with pesto which i never shared on here, but as both the gnocchi and pesto were store bought there wasn’t much of a recipe to share. However i am planning on making my own gnocchi and pesto and will share the recipe to those…. if i ever get around to making the homemade version anyway!

Here is a simple meal idea which you can make both at home in the oven, or prepare and then barbeque later on.


You can either premarinade all the vegetables and tofu and let sit for 1-2 hours before putting onto the skewer, or you can just put all the vegetables onto the skeweres, cover in oil and seasoning, maybe a drizzle of barbeque sauce or premade marinade and then grill/bake in the oven.

Skewer sticks

Vegetables of choice: example, potatoes, paprika, onion, mushrooms, tomatoes, aubergine, zucchini (If using potatoes, make sure they aren’t too big so that they will be cooked all the way through)

Tofu/tempeh/soya meat



&Ingredients for marinade, example oil, soya sauce, garlic

&Peanut butter-BBQ sauce ingredients: Peanut butter, store bought or home made BBQ sauce & some oat cream

How to:

Begin by chopping the vegetables and potatoes into small pieces. Either pour all of the chopped up veggies into your pre made marinade, and after 1-2 hours place onto your skewer sticks. OR, place the ingredients onto your skewer sticks and then place onto a baking plan with parchment paper. Mix together oil, garlic and salt and drizzle over the skewers & “massage” into the skweres so that they are all covered.

If baking in the oven, preheat to c.a 210degrees celisius and place the skewers in the oven. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, rotating the skewers after half the time if necessary.


While the skewers are baking, mix together c.a 1 heaped tablespoon of peanut butter, 1-2 tablespoons of barbeque sauce and enough oat cream to reach the right consistency according to your own preference. Mix and let stand in the fridge until ready to eat.

Serve the skewers with some salad, peanut butter sauce and maybe some corn on the cob and potato salad for an extra grill-summer vibe!!
