Spiced Tofu Skewers #120DaysofSummer05:00
Spiced Tofu Skewers: Summers are at its peak and what could be more fun to enjoy whilst we still can with lots of spicy grilled food, wines and some beaches.
Last month when Santa Rita Wines sent me two bottles of red and white wine I was super excited and thrilled to make a dish that could pair with the wines.I also got a jar of Badia complete seasoning spice mix to create a dish.
We are not into alcohols but sometimes like once in 3 months we do love to have red wine with our dinner.From the starting I knew what I had to make and my trial was a huge success.I used tofu and vegetables to make grilled skewers. While marinating them in the yogurt spice mix I also added the spice mix and you won't believe how flavorful the skewers were.
I had some guests come over and they all enjoyed the skewers with Santa Rita red wine.I would highly recommend the Badia spice mix along with Santa rita wines as with these two things you can have lots of fun and creativity in the summers. Go ahead and enjoy the summers with Sana rita wines and Badia spices.
A little information about the product "Superb quality and craftsmanship are the hallmarks of Santa Rita, one of Chile’s most admired and innovative wine estates.The “120” series of wines was named after the historic event in which 120 soldiers took refuge in Santa Rita’s cellars in 1814 during Chile’s war for independence.These wines are fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures and bottled early to preserve each variety’s fruitiness and natural aromas.The 120 wines are young, fresh and fruity, elegant and perfectly balanced with good acidity. Their exceptional value makes them an outstanding choice for accompanying our everyday meals".
