GIVEAWAY – Grills Gone Vegan

This Giveaway is now closed.

I can’t deal with the fact that, for us in the northern hemisphere, summer is coming to an end. It’s time to deflate the swimming pool and plant my winter vegetables. But, there is no reason to put away the grill yet, especially if you win this copy of Grills Gone Vegan by Tami Noyes of Vegan Appetite. If you haven’t tried any of Tami’s recipes yet, I think you should get to it stat! I fell in love with her American Vegan Kitchen and I’ve heard so many great things about the new book as well. She is a genius!

Grills Gone Vegan will also make it so you never have to bring an embarrassing looking, plastic encased, Bocca Burger to cookout again. Instead wow your friends with dishes like Grilled Tofu with Red-Hot Chimichurri Sauce, Panzanella with Tempeh, Skillet-Grilled Mango-Blueberry Cobbler, Roasted Corn on the Cob with Chipotle Butter, or Smoky Potato Packets. There are also plenty of tips about grilling and then a whole chapter on rubs, marinades, and sauces. Here’s even more pics from a tester “Cooking the Vegan Books” and she doesn’t even have a grill!

Could you be any more excited? Just from looking at those pictures I want to buy 10 copies but you can win one right now ’cause we are about to give away two! TO ENTER You must have a US address to ship to and answer this question below, What is your favorite thing to bring to a cookout/barbeque? Bonus points for linking to a recipe! Please also use an email that you check so I can contact you if you win.

    I like to take roasted fingerling potato salad. Thanks for the chance to win this!

  3. Lindsey says:

    I like to bring the potato salad so I know I can eat it. Mmmm.

  4. Lori says:

    I adore cole slaw and put it almost on every kind of sandwich I make. Vinegar or vegan mayo-style, I love it!

  5. Christina says:

    I like to being a crisp, fresh tossed green salad loaded with seasonal fruits and vegetables.

  6. Melissa S. says:

    Marinated vegetable kabobs, served over couscous. Always a hit with the non-meat eaters! http://www.vegetariantimes.com/recipe/marinated-vegetable-kabobs/

  7. Alex says:

    This summer I had a lot of success with bringing a jicama, mango, and corn salad, similar to this one:
    http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Mango-Jicama-and-Corn-Salad-2221

    (but I make mine without cilantro, add bell peppers, agave, and red pepper flakes)

  8. My favorite thing to bring is veggie kabobs! They are so easy and everyone enjoys them. My favorite veggies to put on them is mushrooms, bell peppers, zucchini, onions, any other squashes…it’s endless what can be put on them! Sprinkle with a little garlic pepper or leave it plain and it’s sooooo good! Sorry, I don’t have a link, I make up my own stuff ;)

  9. I love bringing this kale slaw. It’s great as a side, but also adds a refreshing bite to grilled veggie burgers. http://www.thevegancrew.com/?p=7137

  10. Dawn says:

    My favorite thing to barbecue is portabello mushrooms marinated in balsamic vinegar and herbs and some red peppers to grill & top it off with. I put some fresh spinach on top, too. I’d rather eat that than a lot of the GMO laden veggie burgers out there.

  11. kate s. says:

    totally the veganomicon potato salad. i’ve had omnis push me out of the way to get some. rude, but still satisfying.

  12. Shannon says:

    i usually just go with veggie kabobs! would love some new ideas though….

  13. Amy Kolasa says:

    Why, I just posted about BBQ yesterday. I’d bring my new fave, Key Lime Coleslaw.

  14. Kim says:

    The best-received thing that I’ve ever brought to a cookout/potluck was a kale salad with strawberries and nuts. Thanks for doing such a great giveaway!

  15. James says:

    i’m lazy and always bring tofurky brats and buns.
    everyone loves them even the meat eaters.

  16. Cranky Apricot says:

    I generally bring Tofurky sausages for the grill, but tabbouleh is my go-to salad since it keeps well in the heat.

  17. Terri Cole says:

    It’s not a grilled recipe, but I’m taking Dreena Burton’s Chickpeas & Artichoke AKA Bliss in a Dish to my family reunion. http://plantpoweredkitchen.com/chickpea-artichoke-bliss-dish-vegan/

  18. Kristin says:

  20. Em says:

    I’m always going to bring a fresh fruit salad. It looks gorgeous, tastes great, and I’ll for sure have something to eat.

  21. Chelsea Bates says:

    There is this asian noodle salad I like to take. It has angel hair pasta w/ hot chili oil, sesame seeds, shredded carrots, edamame, sesame oil, soy sauce, and one other ingredient. I can’t find the exact recipe I use, but this is close, if you made some adaptions. http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Sesame-Noodle-Salad/Detail.aspx?event8=1&prop24=SR_Thumb&e11=sesame%20noodle%20salad&e8=Quick%20Search&event10=1&e7=Video

  22. Beth says:

    I really like bringing hot dogs to a cookout. Dinner is super simple and yummy! Here are some recent dawgs I made here

  23. Tessa says:

    I adore grilling. It makes even the simplest things so tasty! A great vegan grilling go-to is carrot dogs! Parboiled and BBQ marinated carrots to be thrown on the grill are simple, delicious, and healthy. Yum!

  24. John says:

    This is my new favorite bring along:
    http://www.twopeasandtheirpod.com/cilantro-lime-quinoa/
    but I leave out the sugar and give it just a touch of agave nectar

  25. Mamachandra says:

    I love bringing tofu to a BBQ and what better to sell the amazingness that is soy curd than to wow peeps with a marinaded variety that’s full of flavor and charred to perfection, making it the perfect BBQ addition?

  26. Thanks for the lovely mention! x

  27. Kelsey says:

    I like to bring a big pot of baked beans as a side and homemade vegan sausages for the grill (I haven’t posted a recipe on this yet).

    Baked beans: http://sunflowerkitchen.wordpress.com/2013/09/05/vegan-bourbon-baked-beans/

  28. I stick with the veggie stuff…usually I bring marinated portobellos and pesto or hummus and lots of traditional and more exotic veggies to build monster grilled sandwiches and salads and wraps. And if it’s a family BBQ I gotta bring cookies…my brother would never forgive me if I didn’t bring cookies. ;)

  29. Deborah Baker says:

    I like to bring portabella mushrooms for burgers, and always a crunchy, cold salad with quinoa, black lentils, farro, chopped veggies, olive oil, vinegar & spices.

  30. Katie says:

    Jerk tofu and a crunchy cilantro slaw

  31. charj says:

    I usually take a veggie tray and dip

  32. corrin radd says:

    i just bring some tofurkey sausages and baked beans.

  33. Kate says:

    The avocado potato salad from Vegan Brunch!

  34. Hope :) says:

    I love to bring a big bowl of potato salad — my grandfather’s recipe, only with a vegan twist. I think he’d be pleased. :)

  35. Valerie says:

    I like to make baked beans for cookouts.

  36. Maddie says:

    I am all about the pasta salad! I like to throw a bunch of seasonal ingredients together with rainbow pasta and a good dressing. . . But I also fell in love with this baby and plan on using it for a long time!

  37. Becca says:

    Potato salad or baked beans!

  38. sarah says:

    jicama slaw!

  39. Melissa says:

    Large portobello mushroom caps to put on the grill with some fresh salsa for topping.

  40. Kathy’s (from Keepin’ it Kind) Cheesy Chile Spiced Mexican Corn on the Cob will just about do the trick for me!
    http://www.babble.com/best-recipes/mexican-corn-on-the-cob-elote/

    so tasty it’s unreal.

  41. Nathan lindsey says:

    Coleslaw!

  42. A. Cook says:

    I actually love to bring cauliflower “steaks” (marinaded in a little olive oil, balsamic, and some spices…or just Italian salad dressing) to cookouts to throw on the barbecue. Most people (at least omni people) don’t seem to know that you can grill cauliflower, but whenever I bring this everyone loves it!

  43. Elizabeth says:

    Chickpea burgers! My son has severe food allergies to animal proteins, so we are always looking for ways to include him. Mommy has even went vegan! He is also allergic to wheat, so I use corn flake crumbs and leave out the sunflower seeds (he is allergic to sesame seeds and I’m scared to try other seeds right now. He’s 16 months old). He tears into these!!
