    I enjoy cooking, baking not so much. love finding new recipes to try, paging through different cookbooks, looking at the glossy pictured finished products. My job at the library gives me the perfect opportunity to find new and interesting cookbooks, quickly page through them, and if I see something interesting, take the book home and try the recipe. If I like a few of the things I have made, I will then purchase the book good myself. This one I bought.

I'm not a vegan, not even strictly speaking a vegetarian, though I do try to limit our meat intake to a few days a week. I don't even grill very often,so why did I like this book? The recipes are easy to modify, you dont necessarily have to grill them, one can use a grill pan, which is what I did. I made several from this book so far, all of them fantastic. Panzanella, a fresh, vibrant tomatoes Salad that was perfect yesterday when it was so hot. A zucchini salad that I was so easy but so good. A simple sweet potato, but filled with a cashew aioli, taking it to a new level. Plus there are still many other in the book I intend to make. A purchase that I will be using time and time again.

    Confession: I'm not much of a griller. We don't even own a grill other than a grill pan that I use mostly for paninis. I think part of it is because I'm a vegetarian, and I have long associated grilling with meat. I think the rest of it is because I'm also intimidated by grilling! This book makes grilling vegan meals incredibly approachable. It starts off with all the basics of grilling- the type of grill to use, how to cut tofu, and everything in between. It really is a thorough background. Aft Confession: I'm not much of a griller. We don't even own a grill other than a grill pan that I use mostly for paninis.

This book makes grilling vegan meals incredibly approachable. It starts off with all the basics of grilling- the type of grill to use, how to cut tofu, and everything in between. It really is a thorough background. After the basics, I still felt intimidated. There was so much to learn! Would I like the foods after years of very little grilling?! Well...the first recipe was Quinoa Chickpea Burgers, and I knew I had found "my people," or my cookbook, as the case may be. If there is anything I am obsessed with more than pesto in my life, it's chickpeas. I also thought this book would mostly be about grilling tofu or other soy products, and I'm not a big soy eater. Thankfully I was wrong. There are tons of ideas for grilling here, all well beyond the tofu burger, though that's in here, too, with fresh twists. It even has many recipes for "steak" like dishes, such as cauliflower steaks and different skewers. I'm trying to stretch and grow my cooking techniques while always keeping our meals fresh, and this is a great place for me to start with grilling. Also included: tons of beautiful pictures of the food! Of course! 😉 Thanks to Nadine Horn, The Experiment, and Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this special cookbook.

    This book was outstanding! Great tips,excellent photos, and inventive recipes without being too unusual! I love that a barbecue cookbook also contains salads, pickles, dips, and breads. Not to mention all the other grilled veggies for mains and sandwiches. An excellent addition to my collection! Thank you NetGalley for the ARC.

    Since I cook vegetarian dinners for my large family and we love to grill out, I was happy to read a temporary digital ARC of this book from NetGalley. There were things I liked about this book, but also areas where it didn't work well for me. Pros: There are full color photos of every recipe. I love that. There are really detailed instructions about everything relating to grilling. I don't know that I ever needed that much information, but if you really want to know about grilling and charcoal and Since I cook vegetarian dinners for my large family and we love to grill out, I was happy to read a temporary digital ARC of this book from NetGalley. There were things I liked about this book, but also areas where it didn't work well for me. Pros: There are full color photos of every recipe. I love that. There are really detailed instructions about everything relating to grilling. I don't know that I ever needed that much information, but if you really want to know about grilling and charcoal and cleaning your grill, you're set. There's a wide variety of types of foods -- veggie burgers and patties, "steaks" and skewers, sausages, veggies, grilled pizzas and wraps, salads, sauces and breads. I also like that there are recipes to make vegan staples like mozarella cheese (though I prefer other recipes to theirs). Cons: We're a gluten free family, and this cookbook calls for a lot of gluten. Not only does it call for lots of seitan (which is made with wheat gluten), but it has lots of recipes for pizzas, breads, wraps, etc. The recipes are fairly complicated. I'm a fan of simple good foods. I'd love to see more recipes for simple sides like grilled pineapple, romaine hearts or portobellos. Most of the recipes that caught my eye were complicated and required ingredients I don't have in my well stocked kitchen. I think the author went for variety -- which is good -- but sacrificed the opportunity to really give readers a lot of choices as a result. Most of the grilled foods were covered with one recipe with one flavor, even foods that could be dealt with a ton of different ways. I'd like to see whole sections on great different ways to grill corn on the cob, mushrooms and potatoes, for instance, since they are such versatile foods and there are so many possibilities. There could easily have been a whole section of different flavors of skewered foods and combinations too -- maybe choices for Asian flavors with one marinade, and then a spicy set with suggestions there and then a bunch of choices that would be great with barbecue sauce and so on. The recipes were not that frugal. I cook for a large family, which is one reason that I cook most things from scratch, even things like veggie patties and pizza crust. One meal from this cookbook would often eat up half my week's grocery budget. I realize that I am way more frugal than most cooks so this probably isn't relevant to many other readers, but that's one reason the book didn't work well for me. I haven't tried any of the recipes, since all of the ones that appealed to me either involved gluten or ingredients I didn't have easy access to or were too much trouble for my schedule feeding my very busy family. I generally jot down recipes from books that are going to expire soon, but I ended up not finding anything that I wanted to keep. All that said, this is probably a fantastic cookbook for most vegan cooks -- especially if you are not gluten-free. It's likely to inspire a lot of barbecue adventures and will certainly show that there's a lot more for vegetarians to grill besides tofu and peppers.

Let's face it, barbecues are not really known for being vegan (or even vegetarian) friendly, and I sort of assumed this would consist of like, sad vegan weenies and black bean burgers or something. I thought it would be lame and I'd roll my eyes and say, yep, barbecuing still sounds like no fun. I was wrong, THIS STUFF LOOKS DELICIOUS! The layout is really nice--full-page yummy-looking photograph on the left, ingredients and simple directions on the right, with number of servings, amount of grill time and prep time along the top, with maybe 2 sentences max of recipe intro shit. Lots of white space, not a lot of text. It's pretty wonderful. There are a few instructions that seem slightly vague to me, but probably mostly because I have no idea what the hell I'm doing with a grill, and I assume I could google a few things I'm unclear on and be just fine. Or, you know, just read all the how-tos at the beginning of the book, because this thing actually walks you through everything like you've never even seen a grill before, which...okay, I've had one sitting on my back patio for like 8 years, so I've technically seen it plenty of times, I've just never actually used it. BUT NOW MAYBE I WILL! I'm about 100% sure I'm going to buy myself a copy of this because I've been looking for incentive to grill more often for (8) years, and I will need something I can spill sauce on and get charcoal fingerprints in and probably dog-ear some pages of (library friends, close your ears, you heard nothing STOP GIVING ME THAT LOOK). Also I have a $10 Amazon gift card just grillin' a hole in my pocket (har har). Anyway. Nina. You in?

    The grill is for us, too! There's no reason why vegans can't enjoy food celebrations like cookouts, and if you're not, you're doing it wrong.

I don't really see the necessity of making my own beer brats from scratch when brands like Tofurky make ones that are so tasty. There is also a lot of from-scratch making of dressings and dips, which I also don't think I would do. Unfortunately, that's the problem with a lot of vegan cookbooks, I've found. If you are already aware of enough convenience products to lighten the load, books like this can be very helpful. For omnis who are unaware of the sheer amount of premade vegan products out there, plant-based eating may seem to be way too involved, expensive, and time-consuming.

    Barbecue means summer, flames, and meat for most people. If you are on a vegan diet that doesn’t have to mean you can’t enjoy a barbecue. With VBQ-The Ultimate Vegan Barbecue Cookbook, you don’t have to. Before getting down to the recipes, the About Barbecuing section covers many aspects of barbecue. First Is The Basics.

This section covers how to choose the right barbecue for you, the right barbecue tools, and even cleaning utensils. Other accessories like pans, pizza stones etc. are also mentioned along with Dutch oven‘s, cast iron griddle‘s and grills, bricks etc. Next is a helpful hint on how not to annoy your neighbors with your barbecue, and information on barbecuing in the great outdoors, or even out of season. A section on the best fire for a charcoal barbecue covers the various fuels like charcoal, briquettes etc. and include information on how to light the fire. Next comes information on controlling the temperature, and the various cooking methods, like direct and indirect cooking as well as others. Smoking is also covered, including what to smoke and what not to smoke. Cleaning the barbecue and safety follow. The recipes section is divided into several categories: How To Barbecue Vegan Style Burgers, Sandwiches & Patties Steaks, Sausages &Skewers Vegetables-Stuffed, Grilled & Braised Pizza, Wraps & Co.

Here you will find out what to buy and how to prepare tofu for your barbecue. The Right Way To Barbecue Tempeh and The Right Way To Barbecue Seitan conclude the chapter. Each of the recipes is accompanied by a full-page four-color photo. The recipes also include serving sizes, barbecue time, and prep time. An Excellent Selection Of Vegan Recipes Some of the recipes call for ingredients you wouldn’t normally find in a non-vegan household but should be easily sourced, even for someone not following a vegan diet. In all, I believe that the recipes in this book will come in very handy for anyone who wants to expand their grilling repertoire. Even if you are not planning on going vegan, it’s always nice to have non-meat options on the table. See the full review and the recipe for Roasted Carrots With Fruity Lemon Oil at The RecipesNow!

    I've long been in the market for a book about vegan barbecue, but even as a vegan, I'm hesitant to barbecue because cooking with tofu, seitan, and tempeh can be tricky in this context. This book covers all the bases. It starts with basic materials, and moves into basic techniques, it makes grilling vegan "idiot-proof" in the best sense. It looks at the various ingredients and explores how they react to the barbecue heat, marinade, etc. Essentially, this is the best part because as a vegan, you'r I've long been in the market for a book about vegan barbecue, but even as a vegan, I'm hesitant to barbecue because cooking with tofu, seitan, and tempeh can be tricky in this context.

Moving into the recipes, it's a varied bunch, from veggies and mushrooms, to tofu, etc. Your standard portobello mushroom burger is here, but now you can get a recipe for grilled onigiri. Currently buried under snow, I haven't had the chance to get out my grill yet and really get to work on these in the traditional sense, but what I have tried on the oventop grill so far has been delicious! It also provides a nice segway into backyard barbecues beyond... "Well, I'm vegan, so I'll bring the salad." Backyard bbqs are such a part of American culture that vegans have long been excluded from, that hopefully, this book and those that follow will be the ones that finally bring these two food cultures together equally.

    Some of the recipes looked ridiculous easy or obvious, like eating a grilled eggplant in a hot dog bun. In fact about 2/3rd of the recipes looked really easy, which is probably good for a barbecue. But others were a bit more interesting. I will try the Mega Bean Burger, which is a variation on a Black Bean Burger, and their version of the Quinoa And Chickpea Burger includes crimini mushrooms - yum!

The Plantain Burgers call for smoked tofu, which is not something I can easily find. I will try to use plain tofu and add smoked paprika. I am not Vegan, so in all honestly I will probably add an egg as a stabilizer to the bean burgers.

    not quite the “ultimate” vegan cookbook. I was hoping this would inspire me to get out and use my grill everyday of summer but I don’t think it will. There are definitely some more interesting ideas such as whole stuffed cabbage and vietnamese pizza and pulled mushroom sandwiches. And there are helpful tips on using charcoal grill and how to grill veggies and tofu. Unfortunately i found too many meat substitute meals using vital wheat gluten.... i haven’t ventured into that yet and don’t know i not quite the “ultimate” vegan cookbook.

There are also lots of salad and sauce recipes which surely will be useful but again I just wanted a few more grilling recipes.

    Amazing!!! Literally every recipe is photographed in all its delicious glory and I just cannot decide what to make first. I also love that this isn't full of just meat substitutes that you buy from the store- these are homemade recipes for all your favorite classics as well as new ones. These are all whole food recipes but they aren't daunting or too complicated, which I really appreciate. Can't wait to start cooking!!

    I only occasionally grill but this book is a quick motivator to enter the grilling world. As a vegetarian I find I have mentally ceded grilling to the bbq folks, the occasional corn/tofu notwithstanding. This cook not only is an excellent primer on grilling but has some eye opening ideas for veggie vbq. Great resource!

The coleslaw and potato salad recipes were amazing to make and I took them to a Chrismukkah potluck where we needed vegan, kosher and halal food…no one was to the wiser. And I prepared them indoors on a panini press as I cannot have a barbeque in my building. Having already bought (and loved) their “Eat This - Vegan Street Food” by the same authors, I am so going to buy this book for myself and our “healthy food-meal prep” cookbook shelf at work. Great ideas for veggie-ful meals that anyone, even carnivores, can enjoy!!!
