These healthy sweet and savory Mustard Maple Veggie and Tofu Kabobs make the perfect dish for any outdoor gathering packed with fresh veggies, sweet potatoes, tofu, and a delicious maple, mustard, garlic, and basil marinade.
Kabobs are one of my favorite things to make when I want a dinner that feels special but all I really want to do is throw together whatever veggies and proteins I happen to have on hand. Just the mere act of threading everything onto a skewer makes it feel fancier than a normal grilled dinner. For this recipe, I decided to pair zucchini, onions, peppers, mushrooms, and sweet potato with tofu and a delicious marinade of mustard, maple syrup, basil, and garlic. Then a quick trip to the grill and dinner is ready!
