Celebrity vegan chef and award-winning cookbook author, Chloe Coscarelli, teamed up with Nasoya to help walk us through the perfect vegan barbeque.

For most, barbecues are synonymous with burgers, steaks and all things meat. However, as more people turn to plant-based and vegan diets, the standard fare of burgers and hotdogs just may not cut it anymore. Recently, Celebrity Vegan Chef and award-winning cookbook Author, Chloe Coscarelli, teamed up with Nasoya and YourUpdateTV to help walk us through the perfect vegan barbeque.

More than ever before, Americans are reaching for plant-based proteins, regardless of dietary restrictions. It’s an environmentally friendly way of eating, is more economically affordable, and can be just as tasty too. The key, according to Chloe, is finding the perfect meat substitute. As a lifelong vegetarian and vegan, Chloe has created countless delicious recipes for friends and families using her favorite vegan ingredient, tofu.

Tofu is a blank slate for many vegan dishes, such as kebabs, pizzas and much more. Made from condensed soy milk, the health benefits of tofu have been well-documented and include a decreased risk in heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Tofu is packed with protein and is naturally dairy, gluten, and cholesterol free, making it the perfect replacement for meat. What’s important is getting to know the different types of tofu and how to best incorporate them into your diet.

Nasoya offers several different varieties of organic tofu, including extra firm, firm, silken, sprouted, and even a pre-marinated baked option, TofuBaked. The firmness depends on the amount of water in the tofu. Silken is best used for dressings, creamy desserts and smoothies, whereas firm and extra firm are perfect for grilling, scrambling or baking. TofuBaked is the ultimate convenience – no preparation required – it’s ready to eat right out of the package!
