Vegan Ribs!!

Full disclosure: I never liked ribs even when I ate meat all those decades ago.

In his pre-vegetarian days, however, James apparently did enjoy the occasional Flintstone feast at The Charcoal Steakhouse in good old Kitchener-Waterloo.

Alas, these days when our boy visits his family and the inevitable trip to The Charcoal Steakhouse occurs, he’s stuck with the one vegetarian item on the menu–some kind of eggplant-like “steak,” (and the man’s not fond of eggplant) while those around him lick the rib juice off their fingers!

Thus, when a video for making vegan ribs showed up in one of my many vegan groups, I was keen to take a whack at it for good old Jamie-boy!

The recipe is quite simple and surprisingly delicious–even to my non-rib-liking self!!

The first time I tried it, I had no barbecue sauce, so used Asian Brown Sauce instead. The result was good enough in terms of texture that I attempted the recipe again a few days later–this time with actual barbecue sauce!

In my second attempt, I also added to the mix sauteed onions and mushrooms with great success!

I made my own barbecue sauce similar to this one and it also received the Jamie seal of approval!

And here is our lovely meal! Oh, and those ‘taters are air-fried!IMG_20180603_210402.jpg

The texture really is amazingly meat-ish! Just take a look at this close-up!


My next plan is to turn this mixture into a veggie burger!
