I can’t decide if I want Mexican flavours or Kebabs for dinner so I combined the two! Cajun spiced tofu kebabs… delicious!
Press and drain the tofu, toss in the marinade and bake with the peppers, onion, mushrooms and tomatoes. Serve these kebabs up with couscous, paprika lemon yogurt dip, corn on the cob, salad and wraps/pitta.

- ⅔ cup oil
- 3 tsp smoked paprika
- 3 tsp garlic granules
- 3 tsp cajun spice
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp sugar
- 4 tsp ground cumin
- 1+1/2 tsp onion granules
- ¾ tsp turmeric
- 2 tsp maple syrup
- Kebab Ingredients
- I block tofu 400g
- 1 red pepper
- 1 large red onion
- 12 small mushrooms
- 12 cherry tomatoes (optional)
- wooden skewers (kebab sticks)
- Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 5/375f, line or grease a large baking tray.
- Drain and press the tofu (put the tofu on a plate with a plate on the top with a heavy object on the top of that-leave for 10mins and drain away excess water)
- Press the tofu with kitchen towel to absorb some more water and chop into inch wide chunks.
- Mix the marinade ingredients together in a small bowl and carefully toss the tofu in the mixture until completely covered.
- With a slotted spoon place the tofu chunks on the prepared baking tray and bake for around 15-20mins or until the tofu starts to firm up and dry out a bit, keeping the remaining marinade for later.
- Chop the onion and pepper into big chunks so you can thread them onto the kebab sticks without splitting.
- Take the tofu out of the oven and start to thread the onion, pepper, tofu, mushroom and tomato onto the skewers, repeat until all the veg and tofu is gone.
- Return the kebabs to the oven for 10mins or until everything looks cooked, at the last minute drizzle the remaining marinade all over the kebabs and serve.
- Tastes great with yogurt, salad and wraps.
