Spicy Coconut Lime Grilling Sauce
This offbeat grilling sauce is great for basting or marinating kebabs of tofu, tempeh, seitan; it’s also delicious on eggplant and corn headed for the barbecue. Recipe by Adair Moran, from Main Street Vegan by Victoria Moran and Adair Moran, © 2012, Tarcher/Putnam.
