These Tofu vegetable skewers are a really easy and tasty vegetarian option to include on your barbeque or griddle. By now, we are all aware that Tofu is a great source of protein, but it also provides a good source of calcium, iron and magnesium. We also included our Garden Veggie Vegetable Broth in the marinade for added flavour and a source of B vitamins and Zinc.
Capsicum is a great source of vitamin C, and tomatoes contain essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, including the phytochemical lycopene which helps to protect the skin from UV radiation.

Make a marinade for your tofu by combining olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, thyme, vegetable broth, salt and pepper, add your tofu and allow to marinate for at least 1 hour.
Once your Tofu is finished marinating, place a griddle pan over a high heat. While your pan is warming up create your skewers by layering vegetables and tofu. Once your skewers are ready place on grill and rotate until the tofu is lovely and golden on each side.
