    About this recipe: This is one of those simple snacks that is unexpectedly flavourful. If you like, you can drizzle any remaining marinade over the prepared skewers. Recipe is from my cookbook Vegan Tapas: 150 quick and delicious snacks and bites for sharing.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1 teaspoon caster sugar
    • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    • 180g firm tofu, drained
    • 1 avocado
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 16 cherry tomatoes (about 120g)

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Extra time:1hr chilling  ›  Ready in:1hr20min 

    1. In a bowl, mix together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, sugar and a good grind of black pepper. Slice the tofu into 16 cubes and add them to the marinade. Make sure the tofu is coated evenly. Chill in the fridge for an hour.
    2. Halve the avocado and remove the stone. Using a melon baller, scoop out 16 rounds from the avocado. Alternatively, dice into 2cm pieces. Pour the lemon juice over the avocado to help prevent the avocado from browning.
    3. On each cocktail stick, thread a cube of tofu, avocado piece and cherry tomato. You may need to halve the cherry tomatoes if they are quite large. Arrange on a serving plate and serve.
