Smoked Tofu Souvlaki with Vegan Tzatziki

Hi Guys,

I would like to introduce you to an easy bbq dish. This is the perfect meal for a hot and sunny day or evening. I have to say it’s not often here in the UK that we have 32C, but we did and I was so happy and I saw so many people on the beach making bbq. They were using meat though, and not into carnism, I created this very simple dish with a little touch of Greek cuisine. Perhaps it’s not the most beautifully presented on the plate, but you know I believe we want quick, and of course yummy food to eat straight away…

This recipe is for 6-8 people

 

Recipe:

1 smoked tofu (200g)

325g baby plum tomatoes

1 red onion (245g)

150g baby chestnut mushrooms

2 large peppers, mixed colours

1 tbsp of ras el hanout powder

2 tbsp of olive oil

salt & pepper

bamboo skewers

Tzatziki 

1 lime

100g cucumber – use just the skin

10g fresh dill

400g plain coconut yogurt

salt & pepper

 

Method:

 Soulvaki :

Firstly clean and chop the onion and peppers, it’s really up to you which size you prefer. Chop the tofu in small cubes. Get creative putting it all on skewers and place them in your tray with olive oil and ras el hanout powder. Grill until soft. If you’re making this dish at home and using an oven, I recommended 180C for 40min, or a little bit longer….

 Tzatziki:

Use a salad bowl and grate the lime, as you will need its zest and also juice.  Dice the cucumber skin, chop up the dill and add the yogurt, salt and pepper, then mix it all together.
