EMMA GALLOWAY TURNS UP THE HEAT WITH MEAT-FREE DISHES THAT DON’T NEED A BARBECUE.
Emma Galloway turns up the heat with fiery meat-free dishes
SOME PEOPLE MAY think it’s kind of strange that I’ve never owned a barbecue, but maybe when I tell you that I grew up in a vegetarian household, you’ll understand there’s never really been a great need for one. (For the record, I’ve also never owned a microwave!).
There are plenty of plant-based options for barbecue feasts, but I thought I’d share a few of my favourite shortcut ways to get similar results for the barbecue-less among us instead.
All the following recipes have been developed with char and smoke in mind. Grilling capsicums in the oven until black and charred gives natural smokiness, while blistering cherry tomatoes in the same manner renders soft, juicy mouthfuls, and the creamy chipotle sauce they’re paired with brings heat and a touch of natural smoke.
A griddle pan is the perfect way to get the look of barbecue cooking, but you can also panfry the peaches or grill them in the oven if you don’t have one handy.
