Vegan Griller’s Guide


You wanna throw a killer barbecue—without the killing, of course. What to do? Consult our vegan griller’s guide and prepare to wow your friends. Here’s what you’ll need:

Hilary’s Eat Well burgers

Hilary herself says that she created “The ‘World’s Best’ Veggie Burger” with the intention of having it be “free of all common food allergens and artificial ingredients.” This burger doesn’t have corn, gluten, yeast, soy, nuts, eggs, or dairy products. It’s basically our vegan dream burger.


Lightlife’s Jumbo Smart Dogs hot dogs

Fat-free but full of flavor, this veggie dog gives new meaning to the phrase “dog days of summer.” Other ways to think outside the bun can be found here.


Gardein BBQ Skewers

There’s something decidedly summery about eating food off a stick. With Gardein’s BBQ Skewers and Chick’n Strips, you can be nibbling at a skewer in minutes. Wedge bits of the faux meat between seasonal veggies, grill ’em up, and then chow down.

‘Kiss Me, I’m Vegan’ apron

If you’re doing the grilling, you deserve to be the center of attention. Put on a “Kiss Me, I’m Vegan!” apron, and spread the vegan love that much further.

    I love to grill. Here are a few ideas that don’t use tofu or faux meat. I grill up veggie skewers. I use summer squash, cherry or grape tomatoes, mushrooms, bell peppers, eggplant, frozen pearl onions that have been thawed, etc. I grill fruit – pineapple, peaches, nectarines and pears. I make veggie packets in foil or on a grill wok. Red or Yukon Gold potatoes, turnips, rutabagas jicama and add onion. Cut the veggies in bite size pieces drizzle olive oil and season with your favorite spices – I like Herbes de Provence. Either wrap in a foil pack or put on a grill wok and cook 20 minutes on a medium heat grill.

    I also grill up seitan on the grill after drizzling it with olive oil. I put it on skewers with peppers, onions firm tofu and mushrooms. Yum!!!

    Gardein products are great, and I will definitely grab some for my next bbq. I was hoping for something a bit beyond faux meat though.
