VEGAN BARBECUE FOR JULY 1ST AND 4TH
Tofu Kebabs with peppers, mushrooms and onion. I had soaked the extra-firm tofu cubes in the Breast of Tofu marinade (this is in just about all of my books, or use the marinade for Crispy Marinated Tofu Slices from my book "World Vegan Feast") for several days, anticipating a meal such as this. I just threaded them on skewers with the veggies, slathered on my Bourbon BBQ Sauce (see recipe below) and grilled them, serving them on a bed of Basmati rice. (Or, alternately, you could serve them in some sort of flatbread, such as pita.)
