Pomegranate Peach BBQ Sauce specifically for your grilled vegetables.
This sauce and recipe is from the book by Bryant Terry titled Afro Vegan, Farm-Fresh African, Caribbean & Southern Flavors Remixed. It’s said that Terry reworked and remixed some favorite staples, ingredients and classic dishes of the African Diaspora to present whole new creative culinary combinations that will amaze vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores alike.
You can find Bryant Terry’s Afro Vegan along with his other 2 vegan cookbooks (Vegan Soul Kitchen and The Inspired Vegan) on Amazon.
I actually came across Bryant Terry’s books and this recipe out of a desire to eat healthier and I was surprised by many of the wonderful side dishes I could use at my BBQ’s when I’m having family and friends over. Many of the recipes offer a great substitute besides your standard baked beans and such. The best part is your guest won’t even look at them as being vegan unless you mention it.
