These Sesame Ginger Peach & Tofu Skewers



  • ¼ cup dried peaches 
  • 2 tbsp tamari 
  • 6 tbsp olive oil 
  • 2 tbsp natural peanut butter 
  • ½ tsp ground ginger 
  • ½ tsp crushed garlic 
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice 
  • 1/3 cup water 


  • ¼ cup dried peaches cut in half 
  • 500g of firm tofu 
  • Wooden skewers 
  • 1 cup watercress 
  • 3 tbsp raw almonds/ walnuts 
  • 1 tbsp olive oil 
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds  


Soak the peaches in a bowl of warm water for 1-2 hours.  

Drain the peaches and blend with the remaining marinade ingredients in a high-speed blender. Add more water if the marinade seems too thick. 

Cut the tofu into large equal-sized cubes and coat each cube in the marinade.  

Cut the dried peaches in half and set aside.  

Assemble the skewers by piercing one cube of tofu, then add a sliced peach, and repeat.  

Bring a pan or skillet to high heat and add 1 tbsp coconut oil to coat the bottom of the pan.  

Grill the skewers for 10-15min until the tofu starts to caramelize and form a light crust.  

Serve warm on a simple watercress and rocket salad, with raw almonds and sesame seeds.
