Dorine’s Tofu skewers
Hello GEO Customers, My name is Dorine, I am an intern from France at Green Earth Organics! I have been here for just one month, in hopes of improving my English. Thanks to you and GEO. I like working at GEO, people are very nice and the organic food is so delicious! I would love your opinion and feedback on my newsletter. I hope you are enjoying your summer. Sun appears, summer comes, and it’s time to barbecue! Meat, fish, vegetables, is what we want! As well in France when a little ray of sunshine comes, we have a barbecue! We love it so much. Let me introduce you to a BBQ vegetarian recipe I’ve enjoyed in France before: Dorine’s Tofu skewers : Tofu cut into cubes - ½ each green and yellow Zucchini sliced thick - 2 Mushrooms cut into quarters - Cherry tomatoes - ½ Lemon juiced - 1 Onion cut into chunks - 2 cloves of Garlic crushed - Approximately 30ml of soy sauce - 140ml of Olive oil -10ml Balsamic vinegar - 2 tablespoons water - Spices Preparation for the marinade In a bowl, put the soy sauce, olive oil, vinegar, a little water (about 2 tablespoons), garlic, the juice of half lemon, a little salt / pepper and spices (put in a lot!) and mix well. Then add your diced tofu. Let marinated for about 3 hours while stirring from time to time. The skewers Put 1 zucchini, 1 of tofu, 1 of mushrooms, 1 onion, 1 cherry tomato and so on. Finally sprinkle with marinade. Cook it from 10 to 20 minutes at 200 degrees. You can serve this on it’s own as a light lunch, or for dinner with side of steamed rice or salad. Enjoy!
