Fajita Tofu Kabobs are a fun twist to add to your menu plan! This recipe can be made on your outdoor or indoor grilling unit!
This recipe will not disappoint. While it features tofu, it also features some delicious, colorful and fresh bell peppers and red onion.
I love how colorful and beautiful these ingredients are when you cut them up. Don’t you?
Next up is the seasoning. Seasoning can be tricky for those who have to eat gluten-free. Be sure to check labels to make sure the seasoning fits for you.
I would suggest going straight for a Fajita Seasoning or you would use a Southwest Seasoning like we used in our recent Seasoned Black Beans recipe.
Honestly, if you just want the deep southwest flavor, you can use taco seasoning, in a pinch 🙂 I mean that makes it more like Taco Tofu Kabobs, but it will work.
I even had a little helper for this one. She was on floor duty. She made sure that all scraps that fell on the floor was cleaned up asap! I mean in a super timely manner 🙂
What a good girl! Thanks Gia!
Get that seasoning on along with some oil and then stir it up. Make sure you stir until its coated all pieces!
Once you’ve taken care of the vegetables, it is time to tend to the tofu! To make this dish we first pressed our tofu.
Pressing your tofu is important, did you know that?
I didn’t at first, but throughout the years I’ve come to realize the need for pressing your tofu!
Time to thread the kabob skewers. I used metal ones, but you can also use bamboo. Just be sure to soak them in water first!
Fire up the GRILL, these babies are ready!
We are so excited to be using a new grill this summer. Our new Silverbac is from the Grilla Grills family! It is a wood pellet grill that provides you with the option to smoke your food or grill your food. I am in love with the size of this grill It has a huge surface for cooking! We have been playing and grilling up a storm this summer! It has been fun testing recipes and creating some new ones with our grill! If you are using a grill like this one, you will need to preheat the grill to 375 and grill your tofu 6 minutes on each side or until done.
