Tofu is not only a great source of protein, but it is an amazing flavor absorber! Not only does marinating have these tofu skewers tasting deliciously savory, they also get slightly crispy while cooking. Paired with peanut sauce that you can enjoy crunchy or smooth, this dish is wonderful as a party appetizer, finger food, or even as a meal. Try it with coconut rice or plain rice for a filling lunch.

One more thing most of the "tofu/soy is bad for you"'studies are backed by - you guessed it - the dairy/beef folks. You don't have to eat it, just sayin' #vegan4life
