As a vegetarian, when you go to picnics, it’s hard to leave it feeling like you had a decent.  It’s even harder living in Texas, where BBQ is ubiquitous.  The only vegetable dishes are …

Homemaid hotdog buns, or… I can bake!

From “Blood, Fire and the Pillars of Smoke”!

 

Don’t you love the name of the blog?  Very piratical!  I thought of high seas and swashbucklers!  It’s really a food blog.  LOL!  One that was started with grilling in mind.  Being from Texas, cooking over coals or smoking is a big deal.

 

What really caught my eye was this recipe for hot dog buns.  Don’t they look wonderful.  Instead of the pasty ones you get in the store, these look toothy.  They look like they can hold a hot dog or sausage with all the trimmings and not fall apart!  A definite must make for me(I love bread making!)

Recipe of the Day: Jamaican Jerk Tofu

Posted on

From Real Caribbean Food!

 

Wow!  My mouth is watering.  I am always looking for a new tofu recipe.  This is made with jerk sauce. Very Jamaican.  So I know that it’s going to be tasty.

 

Check out the site.  They have some great recipes.  This is a restaurant in NYC.  They need to move to Houston.  We could use a restaurant like this!

 

All the ingredients are easily available.  Pimento berries is allspice which you can get at supermarkets.  If you are hit by the pumpkin shortage, butternut squash would be a good substitute.

Barbecue Seitan Ribs

Jim was a never a big barbecue rib type of guy.  He didn’t like gnawing bones.  He felt that he was always getting the gristle and fat.  And it was too greasy for him.  It was me that liked the ribs.

 

After going vegetarian, I kind of missed them.  Boca has a product called riblets.  They were a pretty good proximation of ribs.  They reminded of the riblet sandwich you would get at McDonalds.  However, they were pretty expensive.  And I missed the caramelization of the barbecue sauce.

4 Vegetarian Ideas For Your Labor Day Barbecue!

Posted on Updated on

Labor-day-2015

 

I am in the process of planning out what I am going to do this Labor Day weekend!

 

Barbecue in the summer is a tradition everywhere, especially, in Texas. Hot dogs and burgers. Sausages, and the ever present beef brisket are the staples of our barbecues. With Labor Day, you are going to see people firing up their barbies to get ready for family and friends. Most times, as a vegetarian, there’s not going to be much for you there. Unless you have really cool friends(like me), or you are with a lot of other vegetarians. Read the rest of this entry »

Pulled Seitan For Your Labor Day Picnic!

Posted on Updated on

DSC02220With Labor Day coming, you know that the end of summer is here. School is starting or in some states has already started. In my family, Labor Day was a time to go to the parade(I am from a big union town) and afterwards we had a picnic in the park. We always barbecued.

 

Being a vegetarian makes it a bit more difficult to be part of the barbecue. Especially in Texas. Barbecues a ubiquitous here. It’s one of our main types of celebration. Usually it’s a barbecued brisket. Sometimes you might have a hot dog day. Never a tofu pup. Or a nice boca burger. I have learned to bring my own barbecue with me. Otherwise, I would be stuck eating pickles and potato salad. I want a little more than that. Wouldn’t you? I have come up with several things. I will bring boca burgers. Tofurky makes a killer Italian sausage. I have a barbecue riblet recipe. Read the rest of this entry »
