Cosmic cauliflower curried tofu kebabs
For a delicious summer dish, look no further than these gorgeous curried chargrilled tofu and cauliflower kebabs. Created by Tess Prince of Love Food Ibiza, these kebabs taste delicious served with a gut-friendly kefir tzatziki.
"Purple cauliflower is now becoming more readily available, but you can certainly substitute with regular white cauliflower," says Tess. "The purple variety is higher in antioxidants, particularly anthocyanin, which can also be found in red cabbage and red wine.
"I’m not going to disagree that tofu is bland, but when you marinade it with curry spices, it becomes deeply rich and fragrant in flavour. Serve with this delicious cooling minted tzatziki dressing for a gut-friendly probiotic punch."
