Jen decided to make some gazpacho last night and we thought some grilled veggies would be a good complement.
We marinated mushroom, onion and pepper kebabs in oil/vinegar, wooster, garlic powder and fresh thyme and grilled those along with some bbg tempeh, cauliflower and mushrooms.
The kebabs tasted just like grilled vegetables, which I like, but there was no trace flavor of the marinade. Maybe making it a bit more adherent would improve the outcome. Still good, but definitely a sauce failure.
We also discovered that cauliflower stalks can be very tough and that detracted from enjoying those as well as we should.
And then there’s tempeh… I love tempeh crumbled and browned and in stuff (see, for example, the very next post!). However, in strips, chunks, bbq’d I don’t find it that great. Extra firm tofu is much more delicious seared in bbq sauce on a grill.
The mushrooms, on the other hand, were fantastic and sadly lacking in quantity (the gazpacho too).
