For the Kebabs:
1 lb. fried firm tofu, cubed (available in the refrigerated section of most Asian markets)
2 medium yellow squash, cut into 1/2-inch-thick semicircles
2 medium zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch-thick semicircles

1 green pepper, cut into 1-inch cubes

• Place the tofu on the bottom of a Tupperware container and layer the vegetables on top. Pour on the marinade.
• Cover and shake the container so that the tofu and the vegetables are covered with the marinade. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or up to 24 hours.
