Vegan Barbecue Series: Plant-Based Meatiness and Marinades

Last week, we helped you celebrate 4th of July weekend with some delicious vegan recipes from across the blogosphere, which you can check out here. We had delicious homemade vegan sausages, red, white and blue fruit tarts and bars, crispy no fry onion rings, yummy burgers, the works! It inspired me to create the series you're going to start enjoying today, all with a friend in mind: the barbecue.

I'm teaching you how to make THE MOST PERFECT grilled corn on the cob indoors and without a grill! Yup, you heard that right, and nope, there's absolutely no difference between them flavorwise. It's freaky!
