It’s April as I am writing this – do you know what that means? It’s officially grilling season. Foodies everywhere rejoice when they are able to pull out their grills and fire them up. Even vegan foodies.

That’s right – grills are not reserved for just steaks and hot dogs. There is so much you can do with a grill if you follow a plant based diet – tempeh ribs, BBQ tofu, grilled wedge salad, skewers, and so much more.

If you don’t have an outdoor grill, Lodge has an awesome cast iron grill pan.
