6 Plant-Based Foods That Will Completely Change How You Perceive Vegan Barbecue, According to Chefs
Grilling is one of the most delicious (and low-maintenance) methods for preparing food, particularly in the summer. An optional dry rub or marinade followed by a quick sear is all it takes to make a mountain of juicy burgers, tender baby back ribs, or perfectly charred chicken breasts.
For far too long, however, we've only considered firing up the barbecue when we crave meat. A shame, seeing as the grill is the perfect way to bring out a fruit's natural sweetness, or to give your fresh-grown veggies added complexity and depth. In the spirit of adopting a more plant-based diet this season (oh, and not excluding our vegetarian and vegan friends from every summer soiree), we asked six chefs about their favorite non-meat ingredients to grill. They also shared the best method for cooking each, so you can try them all at home tonight.
