Sesame Tofu Skewers With Spicy Peanut Sauce [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan


For the Tofu:

  • 1 14-ounce block firm tofu
  • Skewers
  • Sesame seeds

For the Marinade:

  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 5 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 orange, juiced
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 3 tablespoons flour (gluten-free if needed)

For the Peanut Dip:

  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1-2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Chili powder


  1. Start by squeezing the water out of your tofu.
    Cut the tofu into strips and put it into a tupperware container.
  2. Then mix together all marinade ingredients (make sure there are no lumps).
  3. Pour the marinade over the tofu in the tupperware container. Close the lid and shake it carefully so you don’t break the tofu strips.
  4. Let them marinate for at least 30 minutes. The longer the more flavor the tofu will absorb.
  5. Cover a large plate with sesame seeds.
  6. Roll the tofu skewers in the sesame seeds so that the tofu is coated on all sides.
  7. Grill on a BBQ or griddle pan.
  8. To make the spicy peanut butter dip mix all peanut butter sauce ingredients in a bowl until you get a smooth texture. If you don’t have smooth peanut butter at home you can also throw all ingredients into a blender, makes it even easier.
