You’d never know that these delicious Grilled Tofu and Mushroom Skewers are totally plant-based and vegan friendly!

Tofu, mushrooms, onions and green peppers are marinated in a balsamic and soy sauce-based glaze and grilled to perfection. These skewers are perfect for a healthy summer barbeque, or an easy weeknight grilled dinner.

This healthy meal is best served over a big salad filled with fresh produce from Heinen’s. Using extra firm tofu in this recipe is key – it helps keep the tofu from falling apart on the grill.
