I thought it would be nice to pass those freebies on to you and thus, here is a chance for you to win some free Gardein!
While admittedly I am not a huge "fake meat" type, I do like to use Gardein in cooking.
Before we get to the contest, I apologize for my lack of posting lately- sometimes life gets in the way and I cannot find the time to cook in any sort of meaningful way. Work and family has been crazy and JL (of JL Goes Vegan) and I have been very busy planning this vegan culinary event set to take place at Flow Bar and Restaurant on May 19th in Jim Thorpe, PA. If you are anywhere near there you simply cannot afford to miss it!! For more information just click the event promotion to the right or give the restaurant a call.
Now for the contest-- if would like a chance (or three) to win some free Gardein simply do one of (or all) of the following:
- Leave a comment on this post (with an email address by which I can contact you).
- Like Vegan Version on Facebook (please let me know you did so)
- Tweet "@VeganVersion I would like some free @Gardein http://www.theveganversion.com/2012/04/beer-battered-bbq-skewer-bites-giveaway.html" (please let me know you did so)
Beer Battered BBQ Skewer Bites
1 package Gardein BBQ Skewers
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 1/2 tbsp chickpea flour
2 tbsp organic cane sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 oz light beer (research the beer you use- not all beer is vegan)
Canola oil for frying
Mix all of the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the light beer and stir until incorporated.
Fill a pot with about two inches of canola oil and heat to 375 degrees. While waiting for the oil to heat, take the Gardein BBQ Skewers out of the package, remove the skewers and break into equal size pieces (they are perforated to easily break apart).
Dip the bite size pieces into the batter and put into the hot oil. Fry quickly until golden brown. Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon or spider and drain on paper towels.
Serve with toothpicks for skewering and barbecue sauce for dipping.
