Tofu Skewers with Creamy Peanut Sauce and Rice

Turn a BBQ into something a little more interesting with these tofu skewers.  Full of flavour and texture to impress your guests with.

TOFU SKEWERS METHOD

Place the tofu squares into a bowl and spoon over two-three table spoons of the creamy peanut butter sauce.  Place in fridge for 1 hour.

Remove the tofu from the fridge.  Using the skewers start sliding your ingredients onto the skewers, copying each skewer so the they all look the same.

Grill on a high heat turning occasionally until the peppers blacken slightly on the edges.

While the skewers are grilling add the cooked rice into a wok along with the creamy peanut butter sauce, leaving just a little bit of sauce in the jug, for spooning over the rice when serving.

Stir the sauce into the rice adding in the peas and sweet corn, and continue stirring until its hot.

Once the tofu skewers are charred slightly and  the rice is hot it’s ready to serve.

Press the rice into a cup,  holding your plate over the cup flip the plate over and carefully lift off the cup.  Hopefully you have a lovely rice stack.  Drizzle the creamy peanut butter sauce over the rice for that extra bit of finesse.  Well done you’ve done it, enjoy, its so good, well worth the effort.
