Tofu Kebabs with Spicy Tomato Peach Sauce

I am not sure if I should be worried but my seventeen-year-old daughter has been opting out of hanging with her friends at the mall in favor of getting dirty, hiking in the woods with me.

I have such a hankering for hiking, and I always hoped I’d bump into someone who would get as excited about it as I do, I just never thought that my argumentative, “we-have-different-tastes-in-almost-everything-except-food“, daughter, would be that someone.

This past weekend, as we were debating if we should hike Mount Currahee or Mount Yona, my daughter tried to convince me that the lycopene in tomatoes was all the sunscreen we needed! “Let’s smoosh ’em and put ’em on, mom,” she said! Maybe she was trying to trick me into taking a comic picture for her Snapchat timeline, or, maybe she was just giddy about all the tomatoes we brought home from Sam’s Club. But, with reports of bear sightings, I wasn’t going anywhere with smooshed tomatoes rubbed on me!

Besides, we had brought home sunscreen, bug repellent (couldn’t find the bear repellent, though), and hats as well! Even though we are both lucky to have been born with a tan, we still have to be safe when out and about under the sun!

While we were at Sam’s Club, I also picked up a case of ripe and oh-so-juicy peaches. I really had no clue what I was going to do with them but when it comes to fresh produce, I am working on my issues to walk by and not buy them all!

When I was trying to figure what snacks to pack for our hike, I looked in the fridge and saw a block of tofu. It was then that I figured I should probably make a sauce using the tomatoes and peaches we brought home from Sam’s Club to flavor the tofu with. Seeing I like a side of spice in everything, I balanced off the sweetness from the peaches with a bit of cayenne and chili powder – totally optional if you don’t like it hot! My daughter suggested putting the tofu on skewers so we could eat them “kabab-style” and wouldn’t have to pack any utensils. So, that’s what I did – pairing them with some balsamic tomatoes (tomatoes tossed with balsamic vinegar and olive oil) and mozzarella.

Sam’s Club also provides members with access to Healthy Living Made Simple (an online magazine) crammed full of articles on healthy living and nutrition. It was in this magazine that my daughter found an article mentioning that tomatoes were May and June’s “Superfood of the Month” and were rich in lycopene, calcium, potassium, and vitamins A and C. And this is what led her to Google the benefits of lycopene and the whole-smooshed-tomato-theory emerged! Sometimes, her imagination makes we wonder if she is 17 or 7!

With that said, cheers to always thinking young! If you would like to check out recipes or tips on healthier choices, then please do check out HLMS.com

Hi Shashi! I'm interested that you mixed tofu with mozzarella.... they look GREAT on the skewers! And I love the idea of that sauce - I can think of all sorts of uses for that.

I sure would like to come on a picnic with you two! (although I'm not sure about the idea of those bears. Yikes!)

I can't think of a better summertime meal for this weekend. Spicy and fruity are among my favourite flavours to combine. Great recipe!

Memorial Day weekend, we took a trip to Aspen and went to Maroon Bells. That was some serious hiking. Maroon Lake is easily accessible but I wanted to see Crater Lake. Almost 2 hours of hiking up 500 feet in elevation, in rocky terrain and snow, we made it. I was quite proud of myself :) I love hiking too, and your daughter is growing up and beginning to appreciate it. The suace looks fab, but those kebabs look fantastic.
