Who says herbivores don’t need a grill?! We love grilling all-year-round because it’s easy, delicious, and clean up is a breeze! Checkout this other Plant-Based Grilling Ideas.
NOTE: This recipe calls for Worcestershire sauce. Many brands of Worcestershire sauce have anchovies in them, so read labels and purchase ones without it. In my experience, a lot of the cheaper, no-name brands are anchovy-free. If you are gluten-intolerant, also make sure label says, “Gluten-Free.”
