Hello lovelies, finally it’s getting warmer and I have the right recipe for you: Grilled tofu mushroom skewers with salad. A large colorful salad and finely spiced skewers, perfectly browned on the grill, something you can really make everyone happy with. The recipe was created in cooperation with Knorr Switzerland*. In order to get the mushrooms and tofu really spicy, marinate them for several hours. I used the new Knorr wild mushroom flakes for it.

The wild mushroom flakescontain mushrooms (of course :-)) as well as herbs, onions and garlic. I was surprised about the large pieces of mushroom inside, it’s really delicious and fits perfectly with everything grilled. The flakes are also made of 100% natural ingredients with no salt – just like all the other spices in the series.

I have managed to turn my family into real tofu lovers in the past years. At first they didn’t like it at all, but properly seasoned, marinated and above all nicely fried or grilled, they now love it. The spicy tofu mushroom skewers meet exactly these requirements: they are deliciously seasoned by the marinade and they are super crispy on the grill. This is how they fit perfectly to a fresh salad.

I love salad as colorful as possible, all my food in general. That's how I can be sure that I eat enough nutrients and vitamins. I also like different textures, such as crisp, sweet, salty, juicy and a little spicy. Doesn’t such a colorful salad look super inviting- everyone loves to try it!

Since the tofu mushroom skewers already give a great flavor, I served a light balsamic vinaigrette with the salad. It’s not too heavy with fresh herbs and the skewers remain the star of the dish.

Of course you can choose your favorite ingredients for your salad. We really like green asparagus as another warm component. Simply fry them with some olive oil, add some lemon juice, season with salt, a pinch of sugar and e.g. the Knorr garlic flakes. This will be delicious. You can also fry them on the grill, simply butter them with olive oil or make a light marinade.

This time we had carrots, radishes, tomatoes, cucumber, young salad, sliced ​​fennel, sprouts, cress, pomegranate seeds and vegan parmesan in our salad – it was colorful, delicious and healthy. You can also prepare the skewers the day before, marinate them overnight in the fridge and grill them the next day. Ideal for the next barbecue at your house, barbecues in the park or with friends and family. By the way, this garlic bread would go along well with them.

I hope I could whet your appetite for trying something different on your grill. The tofu grill skewers are sure to be great and if you do not have a grill, then you can of course just fry them in the pan.
