DELICIOUS (& Healthy) BBQ GRILL IDEAS FOR MEMORIAL DAY

This Memorial Day, toss some of these outrageously delicious Sneaky Chef Veggie Dog Kebabs on the grill alongside juicy Veggie Patch Ultimate Meatless Burgers and watch your friends and family literally line up for more!

The Veggie Dog Kebabs are super easy: just cut up some Veggie Patch Veggie Dogs into half inch pieces and skewer them with alternating pieces of pineapple chunks, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, zucchini & onion chunks, etc. Then coat with some of my famous Sneaky Chef BBQ Sauces (recipe below) and grill on the rack or, if you have them, on veggie grillers (flat non-stick pans with holes) that you set on the grill--they hold the sauce better than on open racks directly. We do this here all the time in summer and they make Veggie Dog Kebabs that are out of this world! Simply serve over rice and with sneaky sides like corn on the cob, sneaky cole slaw, etc. 
 
Next, for the healthiest, juiciest, best tasting burgers you've ever had, go gourmet! Just put some Veggie Patch Ultimate Meatless Burgers on the grill and you'll quickly see why these thick and juicy burgers are a far cry from ordinary vegetarian burgers. They are sure to please even the most discerning burger-lover. Serve on a whole wheat bun with plenty of Sneaky Chef BBQ Sauces (recipe below), onions, lettuce, and with sides like corn on the cob and cole slaw. 
 
Use these simple and delicious recipes to make this Memorial Day your most healthy and delicious ever!
 
Enjoy in good health,

*QUICK FIXES FOR STORE-BOUGHT BBQ SAUCE
Each of the boosters below both enhances the nutritional profile of your favorite bottled barbecue sauce. In addition, they cut the sauce’s acidity, which may help to prevent acid reflux. Start by adding the smallest recommended amount of just one of the nutritional boosters, and add a little more each time you serve the sauce. You can also mix in two or more of the boosters below, up to a total of about 1⁄2 cup booster per 1 cup of store-bought barbecue sauce.
* 2 to 4 tablespoons White Bean Puree,  White Puree or Orange Puree: Combine the Puree of your choice with 1/2 cup of store-bought BBQ sauce, mixing until well blended.
 
*SNEAKY CHEF HOMEMADE BBQ SAUCE:
This quick and versatile sauce can be made as spicy as desired.
Makes about 2 cups of sauce
1 green tea bag
3⁄4 cup tomato paste
1⁄2 cup cider vinegar
3⁄4 cup White or Orange Puree 
1 to 2 garlic cloves, minced
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons honey
2 to 3 teaspoons chili powder
Hot sauce, to taste
Steep the tea bags in 1⁄2 cup boiling water for 2 minutes (no longer or it will taste bitter). Allow the tea to cool, then whisk a 1⁄2 cup of tea together with the tomato paste, vinegar, White or Orange Puree, garlic, pepper, salt, Worcestershire sauce, and honey. Add the chili powder and hot sauce to taste. Thin with more green tea if desired.
Cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
