Delicious Tofu Skewers

These look absolutely AMAZING when they're all done, and ready to be eaten.


  • Firm tofu. (cut into skewer-size pieces)
  • Ground spices. (like cumin, paprika, garlic, cayenne, turmeric)
  • Egg. (beaten)
  • Wooden skewers. (soaked in water for 30 minutes beforehand)
  • Regular or Panko breadcrumbs.
  • Bell peppers, or any thick sweet pepper.
  • Red or white onion.
  • Plain white flour.


-Get three small bowls.
Fill one with a mixture of flour and spices, to a ratio of 1/3 spices, 2/3 flour. Mix together.
Fill another with the beaten egg mixture.
And fill one more with breadcrumbs.

-One at a time, by hand, get each piece of tofu and coat it first in the flour/spices mix, then followed by the egg mixture, and finally coat the egg layer with breadcrumbs. Place on a plate or chopping board.

-Quarter the onions, and cut the peppers into large slices.

-Put the tofu cubes on a skewer, along with the vegetables.

-Place in the oven for 10-15 minutes (Ideally suspended) @220c until the tofu coating has turned a lovely golden colour and the vegetables have charred a little. Serve drizzled with some sort of spicy sauce or mayonnaise. OR BOTH!

 This is my friend Niamh learning how to make them ~^_^~

Filling? Not really, best used as a party food, or a starter.
Healthy? Definitely! The only vaguely unhealthy ingredient is eggs. No oil used in this recipe.
Please use organic free range eggs. And try to get organic/non-GMO tofu and vegetables.
