Who said that vegans cannot use a barbecue? Have you ever tried barbecuing mushrooms, bananas, watermelon, or even peaches on the hot plates? Let’s talk about some interesting barbecue ideas for vegans. The first thing is first though; you are going to need to choose a grill, if you need a cheap one then you can find grills for under $300. If you need something more specialized, for example, to smoke your fruits then you can find a smoker for beginners easily.
Now that Christmas is coming surely there cannot be any excuse not to get a barbecue or smoker to make your vegan diet just a little more interesting. I mean, I can not be the only one that feels as though they are missing out sometimes at these family get-togethers or these weekend neighbourhood barbecues?
Why Vegans Should Barbecue More Often
Vegans should barbecue more often because cooking on iron hotplates is beneficial for your health since these hotplates are a natural source of heme iron which is better tolerated by your body, unlike ferritin which your body can only be held by your body for 48 to 72 hours.
There is also the main reason why you should be using a barbecue to grill or smoke your fruits and vegetables, uhh helloo!!! Grilled food, hot and steaming straight off the barbecue there is no better flavor. Vegans should use the barbecue more often so that they can have a little bit of variety in their diet. Here is just a few of the things that I like to barbecue when I am in the mood for food:
- Sweet potato and taro
- Watermelon and rockmelon
- Banana and Peaches
- Pineapple and Oranges
Those are just a few of the things that I like to barbecue. I know some of my friends that marinate their tofu and vegan cheese in peanut butter overnight and then sear it on the grill and hotplates on their barbecue. I tried it once before but there was not much to share – it was very good.
