A great dish for  lunch or dinner for all ages. There are a variety of vegetables and proteins that can be chosen to fit your family’s taste buds. For vegetarians the tofu kebobs are a good option. For those who eat meat, there’s the chicken option. For a larger quantity and more variety make both chicken and tofu, as they have the same cooking time and will be ready at once.

    9 oz. firm organic tofu*, cubed (or 2 boneless and skinless organic chicken breasts, cubed)
    8 organic cherry tomatoes
    8 organic mushrooms
    8 mini organic bell peppers or 1 medium sized bell pepper cut into chunks

    1 ½ tablespoons honey*
    1 tablespoon expeller pressed canola oil
    1 scallion/chive chopped
    1 tablespoon fresh squeezed orange juice
    1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice

Directions:

    1. Whisk all marinade ingredients in a small glass or plastic bowl. Pour marinade over tofu or chicken. Tofu should marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Chicken should marinate 30 minutes. While waiting for marinade, soak 4 wooden skewers in cold water at least 30 minutes.

    *Do not serve honey to children under one year.
