Vegan BBQ Skewers served with Asian Slaw

Here's another great labor day recipe from gardein™:

BBQ Skewers served with Asian Slaw

Ingredients:

1 box of gardein™ BBQ skewers

For the Asian slaw:

  • 2 cups of shredded cabbage
  • 3 cups of Napa Cabbage
  • 1 cup of shredded carrots
  • 1 cup sliced or diced red pepper
  • 1 cup sliced green onion
  • 1 cup chopped or crushed peanuts
  • 1 bunch of chopped cilantro
  • For the dressing:
  • 1 grated garlic clove
  • 2 tsp grated ginger
  • 1 tbsp gluten-free tamari
  • 4 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp cane sugar
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup sunflower oil
  • a squeeze of lemon/lime

Directions:

Combine the slaw ingredients in a large bowl (everything but the peanuts). In a small bowl combine the grated garlic (crushed or chopped), grated ginger, tamari, rice vinegar, and cane sugar. Gradually whisk in the sesame oil and sunflower oil. Add a squeeze of citrus. Add the dressing to the coleslaw and toss. Sprinkle with the peanuts and set aside.

For the BBQ skewers, place on BBQ / grill and cook for 3 to 4 minutes each side. Keep basting with the remaining sauce. Immediately serve skewers with sides.
