FAQs

How to grill vegan proteins?

To grill tofu you will need to press the tofu, cut it into thick slabs and then marinate it for delicious flavor. I like to use extra firm tofu for grilling so it doesn’t fall apart and while I often marinate for 24 hours, you can still get great flavor in as little as 15 minutes. Grill on oiled grates on a preheated grill at 450°F for 8-10 minutes on each side.

How to grill veggie burgers?

If you are grilling a frozen pre-made veggie burger, follow the directions on the packaging for best results. To grill a homemade veggie burger, I recommend to grill in foil or on a grill pan.

How to grill vegetables?

While each vegetable from corn to zucchini will have a different grilling time, the general method is to grill over open flame turning at least once or twice depending on the vegetable. I love to use a grill pan for grilling vegetables.

What are some recommended tools for grilling vegan recipes?

Cooking oil, a grill brush, stainless steel spatula, tongs, a grill basked or foil and skewers are helpful when making a vegan BBQ recipe.
