The New Veganism: Tempeh Kebabs with Homemade Barbecue Sauce


I’m writing from one of my favorite train rides: the scenic, two hour ride from New York City to Hudson, NY. My best friend’s little sister is getting married this weekend, and my boyfriend and I are on our way to join in the celebration (snacking on medjool dates, corn chips, and green juice as we travel–a weird, but pleasant hodgepodge).

Anyway, as you head into the weekend, I thought I’d leave you with my latest column for The New Veganism at Food52. It’s tempeh kebabs with a sweet, tangy, homemade vegan barbecue sauce. They are easy, delicious, and summery. If you don’t have grill access, you can totally make them in a grill pan or an indoor, electric griddle.


Head on over to Food52 for the kebab recipe! I hope that you enjoy them, and that you enjoy the weekend. I’ll be back on Sunday for Weekend Reading!

  1. These look great! I’m especially intrigued by the bbq sauce. I am just not impressed with the laundry-list of ingredients found in the store bought ones.

  2. I just recently started eating tempeh a few weeks ago and I can’t believe I didn’t try it sooner! I’m in love! I’m also getting a little tired of BBQ tofu so you can bet I’ll be trying these kebabs! Oh and I just got my copy of your cookbook in the mail over the weekend and it’s beautiful, Gena! The recipes are mouthwatering and it makes me so excited to incorporate more raw foods into my life! Congratulations! <3
