Grilling Vegan Style is a great book for vegans, vegetarians, and those interested in incorporating more healthy ingredients into their diet. This books is filled with colorful pictures of delectable foods such as No-Bake Lasagne and Grilled Peaches. Schlimm goes into great detail at the beginning, explaining the variety of grilling methods and elaborating on the best vegan ingredients. Shlimm is very relatable, and his recipes are too – there is nothing in this book that is too difficult, even for beginning grillers. Also, there aren’t lots of processed ingredients (he doesn’t go for the convenience option like spicing up Tofurkey links or using Veggie Burgers in every recipe) – refreshingly, he uses fresh vegetables and seasonings that will appeal to everyone.
Beyond great grill recipes like Grilled Vegetables on Focaccia and Seventh Inning Stretch Tacos, the book provides a number of sauce and condiment recipes that are extra tasty – Finger Lickin’ BBQ Sauce, Homemade Vegan Worcestershire Sauce, and King Wasabi Marinade make this book worthwhile. There are also desserts which can be grilled (a complete surprise) – Vanilla Pound Cake with Lemon-Lime Glaze and Tropical Kebabs with Raspberry & Cointreau Dip – and there is an entire chapter on cocktails and drinks to go along with all of your grilled fare.
This book is filled with insight and information for anyone considering becoming a vegan – it is a real hit and well worth space on your shelf.
