Summertime Grilling

Posted by April Nockleby, ALDF's Online Content Manager on July 18, 2008

I had the pleasure of attending a friend’s barbecue the other day,
and as I stood around chatting with others at the party, I noticed a
fellow guest searching for a spatula or tongs to flip the veggie
burgers on the grill. Another guest commented, "Those vegans, they
don’t grill much." Without hesitation, I blurted out, "That’s so not
true!" Grilling is certainly not reserved for carnivores alone. In
fact, grilling happens to be one of my favorite summertime activities.
There’s nothing like homemade grilled veggie pizza, or simply a good
ol’ grilled Tofurkey Frank topped with all the fixings.
