* Part 1 Sweet Potato and Tofu Skewers

  • 2 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½- to 1-inch piece tofu cubes
  • Wooden toothpicks or small skewers

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place sweet potatoes on a lightly greased cooking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, turning twice. Cook tofu in a stovetop, non-stick skillet for 3 to 4 minutes over medium heat, until browned. Drain excess oil and let rest on paper towels. To serve, thread a piece of tofu and a potato cube onto a toothpick or small skewer for dipping in Lemon-Garlic Mayo.

  • 2 Tbsp parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Combine the parsley and mayonnaise. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well. Keep refrigerated.
