Review

VegNews (Twitter account), 2/6/12
“Here's how it is: We love @JohnSchlimm and can't wait for his grilling book to hit shelves!”

Rory Freedman, Co-Author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Skinny Bitch
"John Schlimm adds sizzle and flare to plant-based dishes up and down the picnic table.  Who knew you could have so much fun grilling everything from salads and sandwiches to desserts?! Grilling Vegan Style is more than a cookbook; it's a go-to handbook for outdoor living, eating, and celebrating."
 
Gene Baur, President and Co-Founder of Farm Sanctuary
"Grilling Vegan Style cracks the code to making summer last all year round by combining equal parts compassion, fire, and nature's freshest ingredients.  This is a feast the whole family can enjoy, and feel good about!"
 
Neal Barnard, MD, President of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine
Grilling Vegan Style brings you the best of all possible worlds—delicious, fun foods prepared in the most healthful way. For everyone who loves grilling, this is the way to do it right.”
 
Biz Stone, Co-Founder of Twitter and Obvious
“When I was a kid, the best thing in the world was grilling time. Grilling Vegan Style brings the nostalgia back and highlights that for me as a new dad, there is a way to share the ritual of ‘food and fire’ with my son.”
 
Inder Bedi, Founder and Creative Director of MATT & NAT
“We often cite several inspirations for what we do at MATT & NAT, however few of them get us salivating as does great vegan food! John’s pioneering take on the traditional BBQ in Grilling Vegan Style (including desserts!) has gotten us VERY excited. Another cultural phenomenon has been brought into the 21st century, thank you John for providing vegans a path to partake in a favorite summertime tradition!”
 
Chef Paul Kirk, CWC, Ph.B., B.S.A.S., Kansas City Baron of BBQ, and Author of Championship Barbecue and America’s Best BBQ
“With Grilling Vegan Style, John has shown you ways to bring out flavors and taste you never thought possible. John’s recipe for Party on South Peach Salsa especially is to die for and will go with almost anything.”
 
Ray Lampe AKA Dr. BBQ, Author of Ribs, Chops, Steaks, and Wings and Dr. BBQ’s Big-Time Barbecue Cookbook
“I have to admit that I was a little skeptical about a Vegan Grilling book. After all in my world it’s all about the meat. I might even be considered a Non-Vegan! But John’s book has opened my eyes to the concept and his recipes are outstanding. The Slip-N-Sliders is a great recipe for everyone and I guarantee I’m going to try the Strawberry Skewers with Vanilla, I Scream! real soon!”
 
Terry Hope Romero, Author of Viva Vegan! and Co-Author of Veganomicon
"Veggie backyard BBQ warriors and grill pan guerillas; John Schlimm, your knight in tofu armor has arrived, also bearing Spiked Ruby Daiquiris and other sipping delights."
 
Marisa Miller Wolfson, Writer & Director of Vegucated
"I dare you to flip through this book and not already start to daydream about which mouth-watering recipe you’d use to wow your friends at the next backyard BBQ.  I can’t decide who would be more fun to grill for: hipster gourmands on a rooftop in Brooklyn or my veganophobic friends in my dad’s backyard in Indiana. The recipes in this book are equal opportunity wowers!"


VegNews, May/June 2012
“Our love for John Schlimm knows no bounds. A relative newcomer to the vegan cookbook-writing scene, he had us at hello with 2011’s The Tipsy Vegan. Schlimm’s signature style is just that: stylish…The man knows his way around a theme, not to mention a barbecue. Just as he did with booze, Schlimm takes a single-subject book and broadens its scope beyond what was previously thought possible…But it isn’t just the breadth and depth of his smokin’ hot repertoire, it’s the thoughtfulness, playfulness, and downright fun that Schlimm brings to his work…Schlimm is an author we’d love to stand around the grill with—gabbing, drinking, and saving the world all at once.”

Library Journal, 5/11/12
“With the heavy emphasis most grilling cookbooks place on meat, vegetarians and vegans may feel resigned to potato salad. Happily, this title delivers a varied, full slate of meal options.”

EatDrinkBetter.com, 7/28/12
“The recipes in Grilling Vegan Style are inspired and inspiring. I recommend it for anyone, from novice griller to pro.”

Portland Book Review, 7/5/12
“With some hundred and twenty five recipes, John Schlimm brings vegans wonderful grilled dishes in Grilling Vegan Style. The ten-page introduction is a must for the novice griller and even those experienced will benefit. Schlimm uses the grill for everything, even making popcorn, grilling lettuce and watermelon.”

San Francisco/Sacramento Book Review, 7/5/12
“If there’s one cookbook to prove that vegan fare doesn’t have to be flavorless or boring, this just might be it…Whether you are a strict vegan or simply trying to incorporate more vegetables into your diet, Grilling Vegan Style overflows with great ideas. Not only are they easy and appetizing, but they use everyday ingredients you can easily find at your local farmer’s market or health food store. Within these pages, grill meets vegan…in very a good way.”

Sand and Succotash blog, 7/1/12
“Provides something for everyone: the recipes are healthful; the tips for grilling hard-to-grill items like tofu, tempeh, and seitan are spot on; and there are no shortage of new ways for old combinations.”

VeggieGirl.com, 7/2/12
“A must have for anyone with a grill.”

Bust, August/September 2012
“Whether you’re vegan or just a veggie lover, this book has all the inspiration you’ll need to get your coals burning for many cookouts to come.”

Examiner.com, 7/15/12
“Whether you are a hardcore carnivore or totally committed to animal-free products, this cookbook kicks up grilling several notches…Grilling Vegan Style is definitely a go-to resource for the complete enjoyment of outdoor living, eating, entertaining and celebrating life.”

Midwest Book Review, August 2012
“Cocktails, family-friendly drinks, and sides accompany dishes meant to make the most of the grill in a title recommended for any vegetarian or vegan cook.”

Examiner.com, 9/21/12
“[The] variety, overviews, and the recipes make this book a fantastic addition to the cookbook collection.”

Delicious Living (website), “9 Great Vegan Cookbooks of 2012,” 12/20/12
“Creative cooks like Schlimm are taking the grill beyond charred meat, using vegetables, seitan, tofu, and other vegan foods to add sizzle to plant-based eating. Lots of yummy-looking photos and a playful tone make this an excellent choice for your grill master.”

REAL (Responsible Eating and Living), Favo

Can't wait for summer and my daughter to use it.
Cookie
Grilling Vegan Style is a great book for vegans, vegetarians, and those interested in incorporating more healthy ingredients into their diet.
shelfishness
There's also a section with an assortment of marinades, that I like to use with both meat and non-meat options.

Format: Paperback
Grilling Vegan Style is a great book for vegans, vegetarians, and those interested in incorporating more healthy ingredients into their diet. This books is filled with colorful pictures of delectable foods such as No-Bake Lasagne and Grilled Peaches. Schlimm goes into great detail at the beginning, explaining the variety of grilling methods and elaborating on the best vegan ingredients. Shlimm is very relatable, and his recipes are too - there is nothing in this book that is too difficult, even for beginning grillers. Also, there aren't lots of processed ingredients (he doesn't go for the convenience option like spicing up Tofurkey links or using Veggie Burgers in every recipe) - refreshingly, he uses fresh vegetables and seasonings that will appeal to everyone.
Beyond great grill recipes like Grilled Vegetables on Focaccia and Seventh Inning Stretch Tacos, the book provides a number of sauce and condiment recipes that are extra tasty - Finger Lickin' BBQ Sauce, Homemade Vegan Worcestershire Sauce, and King Wasabi Marinade make this book worthwhile. There are also desserts which can be grilled (a complete surprise) - Vanilla Pound Cake with Lemon-Lime Glaze and Tropical Kebabs with Raspberry & Cointreau Dip - and there is an entire chapter on cocktails and drinks to go along with all of your grilled fare.
This book is filled with insight and information for anyone considering becoming a vegan - it is a real hit and well worth space on your shelf. Review from [...]

I really have been enjoying this book since I got it! It was full of great information about grilling and ingredients. It is also packed with all kinds of inventive and delicious recipes. I have tried a few already and I've only had it for about two weeks. The Flame Kissed Eggplant with Hoisin Sauce was hit with my whole family and I really love that he included a recipe for home made hoisin sauce. The orange zest really makes it special so don't leave it out! I also love the marinades chapter. There is something for everything and everyone. We especially enjoyed the Lemon Pepper one and even added a bit of freshly minced garlic and used it as a pasta salad dressing. We also made the Tex Mex Tempeh for Two and doubled it. I used extra marinade on some veggies, grilled it all and made fajitas that were out of this world delicious! I highly recommend adding this book to your library!

Few books on vegan grilling can get close to this one, I wanted more pictures though. The thing here is that the recipes are tasty and that it gives the non vegan additional dishes to cook to minimize the impact of high fat of most meats and cholesterol in every inch of animal products.

I loved John Schlimm's book The Tipsy Vegan, so I was super excited to find out that he had written a book on vegan grilling. It came out just as I inherited a grill with my new house, so the timing couldn't have been better. I skipped from the mailbox to the back yard, fired my grill up and started cooking just about anything I could get my hands on!

Grilling Vegan Style is a must have for anyone with a grill. John starts the book out with a grilling primer, and then explains the ins and outs of grilling things such as tofu, tempeh and seitan. He even goes into vegan ingredients such as margarine and marshmallows, for those who are new to vegan cooking. There are recipes for just about every food in the plant based world here, from pizza and sandwiches to fruit, vegetables and even lettuce. Yes, lettuce! And it's delicious too! There's even a chapter full of summertime cocktails such as BLEEP! on the Beach and Sassy Sangria. Just like in The Tipsy Vegan, John's fun personality shows through in his recipes and he proves that vegan food is anything but boring.

I have been vegetarian for 40+ years and a vegan for 2 years. The grill has always intimidated me, and I never really could think of healthy meals to plan to grill; we were just grilling the usual veggie burgers and veggie dogs, that is, until I discovered this fabulous cookbook. My daughter, who has been vegan for 12 years, and I, sat down the day the book arrived and planned a vegan birthday party. We used several of the recipes from this book. Needless to say, everyone feasted to the bursting point -- everything was a huge success. Of course, the grill is now getting used much more often now! Would recommend this book to all vegans, vegetarians, and even omnivores who are looking for ways to vary their grill menus. Great cookbook!

Grillin Vegan Style recipes complement my food prep lifestyle and offers some very interesting but unique veggie grilling recipes. Over the years, I probably have invested in dozens of cook books but only in recent years have explored grilling techniques. This book really puts one more tool in my kitchen toolbox to wow friends, family and special guests!
