These chimichurri tofu skewers are one of those dishes that’s so simple, yet so flavorful and satisfying – exactly what we want when we’re making a late-summer meal on the grill. The sauce here gets a little extra kick from jalapeño-infused oil, which also serves as the marinade for the tofu. If you’re going to be skewering regularly – and we certainly hope you will – it’s worth it to spend a few dollars on a set of reusable skewers.
Sure, you could just drop a mushroom cap or pre-packed veggie burger patty on the grill, but in just seconds more, you can bring this polished dish to the table.
