Chipotle Party Kebobs

Get the grill ready! These vegan kebobs are great for a party. They may look like meat, but this recipe actually features Gardein Protein. It also works well with portobello mushrooms, eggplant, or tofu; either way, these fun kebobs are sure to make this a memorable Memorial Day meal... or maybe even become this summer’s snack time sensation!

Ingredients:
1 package frozen Gardein Chick’n Wings*
bamboo skewers

Spicy Chipotle Sauce:
3 Tbs. non-dairy margarine (try Earth Balance)
3 Tbs. garlic clove, peeled & minced
½ cup yellow onion, diced
2 Tbs. chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped
2 tsp. maple syrup, agave nectar, or sugar
5 Tbs. ketchup
1 Tbs. soy sauce (optional)
1 Tbs. cider vinegar

* You can substitute with 4-6 sliced portobello mushrooms, 1 package of firm tofu cut into strips, or at least 1 eggplant, cut into strips & pre-roasted for about 10 minutes.

Directions:

  1. Soak bamboo skewers 1 hour prior to preparation; thaw 1 bag of Gardein Chick’n Wings.
  2. Take 2 Chick’n strips in the palm of your hand and push together; form them around a bamboo skewer and set aside; repeat until out of strips.
  3. Make the sauce by melting margarine in a non-stick pan over medium high heat; add garlic and onions, stirring frequently until golden; add chipotle chilies, agave nectar or maple syrup, ketchup, soy sauce, and cider vinegar; stir well and cook for 5 minutes until sauce is thick and sticky.
  4. Brush Chick’n kebobs liberally with spicy chipotle sauce; grill (or sauté) over medium heat for about 5 minutes until crisp and brown on both sides (be careful not to burn); brush with more sauce if desired and serve hot.

More Meat Cautions

Cancer experts have issued a fresh warning about eating red and processed meat after "the most authoritative report" on the subject blamed them for causing the disease.

The World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) in London has just reported that both red meats such as beef, pork, and lamb, and processed meat, such as ham and salami, increase the risk of bowel cancer. WCRF scientists studied 263 research papers looking at the role of diet, weight and physical activity in bowel cancer. An independent panel of leading cancer experts then reviewed their conclusions. "The panel confirmed that there is convincing evidence that both red and processed meat increase bowel cancer risk," said the report.

Finding Food Justice

Bryant Terry has been described as an "eco-super hero." A food justice activist and amazing chef, he’s also author of two critically acclaimed books: Vegan Soul Kitchen: Fresh, Healthy, and Creative African-American Cuisine and Grub: Ideas for an Urban Organic Kitchen.

Bryant recently addressed students and staff at the University of California, inspiring the audience with his charismatic presence, speaking about much deeper matters than the culinary arts. Food justice, he explained, is about access to healthy food options. He described the disadvantages low-income communities face and how often their only choice is to purchase unhealthy processed foods. He emphasized that the social justice movement cannot exist without some kind of conscious food movement.
