Some people may believe that vegetarians cannot enter the Zone. That’s simply not true. In Dr. Sears’ “The Soy Zone,” published in 2000, chefs served up 100 tasty vegetarian recipes. Here are one of them.
4 to 6 wooden skewers, soaked in water overnight
8 ounces extra-firm tofu, patted dry and cut into 1-inch cubes
1 large red pepper, seeded and cut into large pieces
1 large green pepper, seeded and cut into large pieces
2 large red onions, cut into large pieces
2 medium zucchini, cut into 1-inch slices
2 medium summer squash, cut into 1-inch slices
1 1/3 teaspoons olive oil
Dried thyme, to taste
Dried oregano, to taste
Garlic powder, salt and pepper, to taste
Put tofu and vegetables on wooden skewers, being gentle with the tofu so it doesn’t break. Place vegetable kebabs at the bottom of a shallow pan or bowl. In a small bowl or jar mix together olive oil, thyme, oregano, garlic powder, salt and pepper, adding more olive oil if necessary. Pour mixture over kebabs and let marinate, refrigerated for at least 1 1/2 hours. Prepare grill or broiler. Place kebabs on grill, medium flame, turning frequently. Watch carefully so that vegetables don’t burn. Cook until vegetables are tender. Serve.
