  • Tofu skewers:
  • 1 (250g) pack tofu
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 small red chilli, finely chopped
  • dried lemon grass
  • Satay sauce:
  • 1 small red onion, very finely chopped
  • 1 large garlic clove, fineley chopped or crushed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
  • 250 ml coconut milk
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar


    1. Cut the block of tofu into long slices, approx 15mm x 25mm x 100mm, and insert a skewer into each along the long length, and lay in a dish.
    2. Drizzle sesame oil and and soy sauce over the tofu skewers, and sprinkle over lemon grass and chopped chilli. Marinade for an hour, turning and basting occasionally.
    3. Meanwhile, make the satay sauce. Fry finely chopped onion for a couple of minutes in the olive oil, then add finely chopped garlic for another minute.
    4. Add the peanut butter, coconut milk, sugar and soy sauce, then stir until thickened.
    5. Place the skewers under a hot grill on a baking sheet, and cook for a couple of minutes, or until browned. Turn and cook the other side.
    6. Re-warm the satay sauce if necessary - add a little water or some of the marinade if it has become too thick. Serve in a small dish on each plate with the tofu skewers.
