Booklist Review
From its beginnings, barbecue has meant meat, from whole hogs to hot dogs. But the virtues of barbecuing easily reach to vegetables and even fruits, as clever chefs have long recognized. Now, as Horn and Mayer explain, even vegans can enjoy an evening centered on a backyard grill. Many of these recipes rely on forms of bean curd for big, hearty portions of protein carefully marked with a grill's distinctive cross-hatching. But such bland bases don't have to be dull. With some deft cutting, a dough of wheat gluten, apple, onion, pineapple juice, and spices makes a perfect foundation for barbecue sauce. With the same blend of spices used for bratwurst, vegan ingredients make effective ersatz sausages. More ambitious backyard chefs can add drama to dinner with a whole cabbage hollowed out and stuffed with lentils. Pizzas, tarts, and tacos all readily lend themselves to vegan approaches. Color photos amplify the foods' appeal.--Knoblauch, Mark Copyright 2018 Booklist
