A great healthy alternative that is packed with flavour and will have everyone licking their fingers. I like to use 2 skewers and thread the tofu and vegies like ladder rungs. This ensures they don't slip off when grilling.


  • For the marinade:

  • 2 tbsp teriyaki sauce

  • 1 tsp light soy

  • 1 tbsp kecap manis

  • 1 tbsp honey

  • For the skewers:

  • 200 g firm tofu cut into 2 inch cubes

  • 1 x medium eggplant cut into 2 inch cubes (skin on)

  • 2 medium zucchini cut into 2 inch cubes (skin on)

  • 2 large capsicum seeded and cut int 2 inch chunks

  • Serve with:

  • 1 x 250 g packet egg noodles cooked and drained

  • 1/2 tsp dark soy

  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil

  • 25 g packet fried noodles (optional for garnish)


  • 1.

    Place 12 large bamboo skewers in water and set aside.

  • 2.

    Combine teriyaki sauce, light soy, kecap manis and honey in a small bowl. Mix well.

  • 3.

    Pour the marinade over the cubed tofu making sure to cover all sides. Leave to marinate for at least an hour in the refridgerator.

  • 4.

    To build the skewers take two skewers at a time and start with a zucchini as the skin is quite strong. Thread the two skewers into the piece of zucchini leaving about finger space between the two skewers.

  • 5.

    Continue with a piece of capsicum then egplant.

  • 6.

    Take a piece of tofu and thread it onto the skewers. Reserving the marinade. Repeat the process with vegies and tofu at least three times.

  • 7.

    Finish the skewer with a piece of zucchini as well. This recipe will yield at least 6 skewers to serve.

  • 8.

    Heat a barbeque grill on medium and make sure the surface is well oiled.

  • 9.

    Place the skewers on the hot grill and cook on each side for 2 minutes.

  • 10.

    In a hot wok combine the cooked egg noodles with the dark soy and sesame oil. Stir fry for a minute or until heated through and then heap directly onto dinner plates.

  • 11.

    Pour the reserved marinade over the skewers after the last side is cooked. marinade will take on a sauce like consistency in less than a minute.

  • 12.

    Turn the grill off don't allow marinade to burn. Remove skewers and place on top of the prepared noodles along with any of the sauce.

  • 13.

    Garnish with a handful of fried noodles if desired.
