Have a Great Vegan Barbecue (video)

This video takes to the vegan San Francisco home of Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, author The Vegan Table and The Joy of Vegan Baking. Colleen is planning a backyard barbecue for 15 guests, not all of who are vegans.

First she goes to the market for fresh ingredients: eggplant, peppers, beets, greens, plus tofu, tempeh and seitan. Back in the kitchen she makes a simple teriyaki sauce for the eggplants, and cuts up veggies for kebabs which she will dip in an easy sauce before grilling. She marinates the tempeh and seitan in barbecue sauce, replacing the meat in a typical backyard barbecue.

Finally we see everything on the grill while the guests wait expectantly. The wait is worth it!

We have a unique book on plant based meals made on a barbeque grill that people are just loving. --GRILLS GONE VEGAN-- I thought you may want to add it or review it on your site. For those who need to reduce meat, it is possible to eat healthy and not give up the mouth watering flavors of grilled food. A digital sampler is available for review, and also a hard copy. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you. Mary Ellen,
