Fourth of July Cookout Vegan Style

We celebrated the holiday and Gwen's son's birthday with a lovely cookout at a lake. I will let the food pics  speak for themselves...vegans don't miss out on anything, except the regret of consuming unhealthy foods that cause environmental destruction and animal suffering. So we had a happy holiday, for sure! There is plenty more Summer ahead for grilling in our neck of the woods, so hopefully you will have time to give it a try. Oh, one more note. If you are intrigued by the bbq seitan pictured below and have never made "wheat meat," here is a good recipe link:

seitan, veg-kabobs, and grilled corn

The finished product: beautiful, bbq seitan or "wheat meat"

lovely corn. soak for an hour in cold water to help it steam on the grill.

grilled red pepper, eggplant, and red onion. the red pepper is blanched (quick boil) first to make it easier to grill

the other stars of the grill...

tofurkey dogs and brats plus some gimme lean patties

a big bowl of rice and quinoa for putting under the other goodies, if desired

                                                my plate...yum!
raw, vegan key lime pie

  1. It was so much fun and the food was really good. The seitan went quickly and I got more than one "This isn't meat?!" From the meat eaters in my family!!
