Fire Up Your Grills!

Fire Up Your Grills!

Memorial Day weekend is right around the corner which means all across America families and friends will be getting together to enjoy their first BBQ this summer. This can create a bit of a dilemma for vegans who would like to bring something to a get together that even meat-lovers will enjoy and try but aren’t that confident in the kitchen. I know we always hope to that we’ll bring something that will make folks overcome any prejudices they may have towards eating vegan and maybe even “wow” them a little. There are a few tricks that can help a bit, like marinating Tofurky Beer Brats in a dark beer with a dash of olive oil for about 15 minutes before throwing them on a grill or Three Bean Salad. This recipe is guaranteed to be a hit with pretty much the whole gang! It is easy to make and maybe a bit messy to eat but that’s part of what makes it so good . . .

Chipotle Roasted Corn

  • 1/3 Cup Chipotle Salsa
  • 2/3 Cup Vegannaise
  • 2 Teaspoons Lime Juice
  • Dash of Liquid Smoke
  • 8 Ears of Corn

Mix salsa, vegannaise, lime juice and liquid smoke.

Fold down each layer of the corn husks. Remove the silks and brush a heavy coating of the salsa mix on to each corn. Fold the husks back up to cover and seal in salsa mix.

Wrap with aluminum foil. Put on the grill for 30 to 45 minutes. Remove foil an put back on grill for 3 to 5 minutes.

Fold down the husks and season with salt and pepper to taste.
