Jamaican Jerk for Veggies & Vegans?
Posted 07 May 2008 - 05:13 PM
My problem is that we have close friends that are vegetarian and a couple of serious vegans. My homemade jerk sauce is already vegan so that isnâ€™t a problemâ€¦itâ€™s what to put it on? What do I use instead of chicken? Is there some kind of fake chicken I can use that grills? I was raised in a serious meat eating family and have no idea. Iâ€™d love some help.
Alsoâ€¦what else should we serve with the jerk?

It comes in different shapes: chunks, strips, etc. Not sure what you'd want for Jerk chicken - chunks I guess? Also, seitan is textured wheat gluten, so it's safe for vegans as well. I've only ever baked with it - not grilled.
Also, an FYI on vegetarian/vegan ettiquitte (to all you meat eaters out there)!!! When you're grilling meat, do NOT use the same utensils on the non-meat food. Also - if you are so kind - don't cook our non-meat on the same part of the grill as the meat. We appreciate it!

We got the BBQ covered. What gave us the idea was the new grill that FI bought. I've named it Behemoth. The thing is gigantic and we ar going to have a veggie side and a meat side.
