Who doesn’t love BBQ? Of course, in the vegan world, BBQ restaurants do not generally cater to our dietary needs. Paul and I love BBQ. Fortunately, Paul grills like a master.

We invested in Grill Mats a year ago; a purchase I would highly recommend if you follow a plant-based diet. You can cook anything on these mats; they are reusable, easy to clean, and require no oil or fat in cooking.

I marinate my tempeh beforehand, so it absorbs the flavors of the sauce I plan to use. Regardless of the sauce, marinating is a must. This time, I chose BBQ sauce. Because BBQ sauce is quite sticky, it is extremely important you cook on low heat slowly, so your tempeh doesn’t burn on the grill.

I topped the sandwiches with Simple Oil-Free Dijon Slaw to compliment the taste of the BBQ sauce. Dijon mustard, maple syrup, and apple cider vinegar is all it takes to make a perfect, tangy slaw.

I made my own healthy BBQ sauce to reduce the amount of sugar and preservatives, but you can use any bottled sauce of choice.
