Cajun grilled tofu

Cajun grilled tofu can be prepared in advance to be eaten own its own or can be eaten in salads or stir fries. Tofu is one amazing protein source for vegetarians and I always hunt for new recipes to make it more interesting. This one certainly tops the chart.

Following recipe can be used for any vegetable or meat you may like to grill.

Cajun spice mix: 1 -2 table spoon
Extra virgin olive oil: 4 table spoon
Tofu: 400gms

Mix oil and spice in a bowl. Stir well.
Cut tofu into squares
and marinate it in the spice for over 4-5 hours. For best result, put it over night.

Place the marinated tofu in sandwich bag
Cover it in air tight container to avoid your freeze smelling.
Soak the skewers in water for 10 minutes before use. Preheat oven on 200 degree Celsius for 10minutes.

Add tofu one by one on the skewers.
Place them carefully in the oven for 20 minutes. At this point you can add little melted butter on each tofu but avoid it if you are watching your weight.
Keep checking tofu and remove it once it is slightly burnt from the sides.

Serve with salad or mint chutney or add in stir fry or soups.
