These were good and both children and adults ate them up. I didn't have a courgette but used cherry tomatoes to make up the weight, and substituted Agave Nectar for honey. You would need to use smoked tofu for this recipe, plain would be bland and I suspect not firm enough either. I served with noodles which were enhanced by the marinade from the kebabs. Just one thing- doesn't devilled imply hot? Should there have been chilli in the marinade? I've made a similar recipe with Halloumi which uses chilli and is lovely.

This didn't work for me, couldn't get hold of smoked tofu, so not sure if that made the difference. Won't be doing again. Lacked taste. :0(

i made this, but adding chicken meat and onions to the kebabs; also, i used a very generous amount of tomato puree in a bowl where i put the tofu and the chicken meat and left them there for about 15 min. . I also used olive oil instead of sunflower oil and i added a little basil to the marinade. It was great!

Simple to prepare and tasty, although the brand of smoked tofu I used combined with the marinade was quite rich. I served the kebabs with couscous which made it a filling dish. Next time I'll add some cayenne or tabasco to the marinade to give it a bit more kick.

These were very easy to prepare and cook, best vegie option I have tried for a long time due to marinade. Non veggies would also enjoy.

Don't know where I went wrong but these were horrid!
Couldn't get smoked tofu, don't know how much difference that made.
There was not enough of the sauce and I found these bland and tasteless. Won't be trying again. Sorry!

As a non-veggie, I have to say these were delish. So filling and tasty, and soooo low in fat!!! I made the marinade in the morning and left the tofu marinating all day before grilling them for my tea.

These were very yummy, i used some lemon juice to freshen it up and like Martin said i used sweet chilli too which made them delicious. I also used halloumi instead of tofu :P

Excellent - but it's even better barbecued than grilled. Also, I always add some chilli to a marinade like this - a spoon of a sweet Thai dipping sauce works well.
