Vegan Griller’s Guide

You wanna throw a killer barbecue—but you’re way too kind to buy and serve up corpses. What to do? Consult our vegan griller’s guide and prepare to wow your friends. Here’s what you’ll need:

Sol Cuisine burgers: With just 100 calories and 12 grams of protein, these vegan burgers are the answer to the age-old question from meat-eaters, “But where do you get your protein?” And they’re delicious, too! Gluten-free, wheat-free, saturated fat–free, and made with no genetically modified ingredients, they’re a true summertime winner.

Lightlife’s Smart Dogs hot dogs: Fat-free but full of flavor, this veggie dog gives new meaning to the phrase “dog days of summer.” Slap ’em on the grill, and then load ’em up with all your favorite fixin’s.

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 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 just a little further.

Great recipes: Whether you’re looking to flame-broil some burgers, try out a new style of skewers, or get your guests a little tipsy vegan-style, there are plenty of books out there to help you. Try one of these three to get started:

    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.
