1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tsp. chopped garlic
1 1/2 tsp. whole black peppercorns
2 tsp. fresh thyme
Zest of 1 tangerine (or orange)
3 cups olive oil

• Combine all the ingredients, except for the oil, in a food processor and blend for 15 seconds.
• While the machine is running, slowly add the oil to form an emulsion.

• Thread the tofu, onions, peppers, and tomatoes on the skewers.
• Place in a bowl and pour the prepared marinade over the tofu and vegetables. Let sit for 4 hours.
