Cook the Issue 2010: Sesame-Ginger Tofu Shiitake Kebabs

By Pielove, member

We love tofu and this recipe is quite delicious-- everyone loved the tofu chunks, but I was the only fan of the mushrooms and orange slices.  Too bad-- I love mushrooms, so more for me!  The marinade was simple and easy and reducing it (as directed) made a delicious sauce for the rice.  One of the best things about tofu is that it keeps for a while in the 'fridge, so this is a great recipe to make with pantry staples-- and it is easy enough for a weeknight-- just drain and marinate the tofu, broil it, and (as we say), kebab's your uncle!

That recipe can go in the "eat more meat" article. I also used red bell peppers instead of the shiitakes. I love the little orange segments between the chunks-- so yummy and juicy.

Pielove writes: Thanks peskyone-- The little rice cylinders are made with a mold that a friend got at a Japanese grocery store-- they are perfect for little kids, making nice rice blobs that are easy to grab. This recipe would be great with scallops-- yum!!! Posted: 9:09 pm on August 27th

Not tofu for me thanks, but would try it with chicken or maybe even some nice scallops. Posted: 6:43 pm on August 27th

Hey ICD, you could make the kebabs with chicken instead-- I bet it would be really good. Make his with chicken, scallions and orange slices and make yours however you like. I am running to a standstill too-- late summer just has too much going on! Posted: 5:09 pm on August 27th

I'm so glad that I skipped the recipe once again! After taking a look at my DH's face, no tofu, no mushrooms for him so there would be no point, maybe for myself for dinner on one of his work nights though.

I added a spell checker a long time ago and forgot about it so now I can correct my posts as I go, no more cut and paste.

I am at a stand still with Cook the Issue for the moment.
