Gluten Free Vegan Barbeque!

Barbeque season is in full swing.  But as a Gluten Free Vegan, what do we do for food at a BBQ?

I just run into this problem myself at our annual church Barbeque.  Typically, I bring a large salad (I brought my Coconut Waldorf Salad), so I know I have SOMETHING to eat.  Linda Schaffer offers a few other suggestions in yer article below

What’s a Gluten-Free Vegan to Do at a Barbecue?

By Linden Schaffer
‘Burgers, brats, dogs and & beer, it’s time for our annual 4th of July barbecue. Bring a salad or dessert to share.’ 
Every summer as the school year comes to an end and the outdoor get togethers heat up, my email inbox gets crammed with invitations like the one above. So what’s a girl who has a healthy diet and wouldn’t touch a hot dog with a 10-foot pole to do? Decline the invitation and sacrifice her social life? Hello no! Instead I’ve learned to make my own delicious side dishes that can work as a meal. More often than not, my vegan, gluten-free, healthy dishes are a hit with both adults and kids. In the end, everybody’s happy and they have no idea this yummy tasting food was good for them. Here are three easy to whip up recipes I use in the summer created by my friend Chef Melissa Petitto.
Linda lists three tasty sounding alternatives for Gluten Free Vegan Barbeques:
  • Hummus with Pine Nuts and Parsley
  • Gluten-Free Quinoa Chocolate Chunk Cookies (watch for the eggs — use egg replacer!)


By the way, this article reminds me of a joke:  What are Vegans no fun at Barbecues?  Because their bean keep rolling off the grill and into the fire ….. okay, maybe it is not so funny ….
