Buying this amazing delicacy may not be as fulfilling as making one at home and this why we took the time to prepare this guide. Here we are going to look at everything you require to make a Texas Style vegan barbeque and other additional techniques one should use to improve their position.  

Section 2: Basics 

To make a Texas-style Vegan barbeque, you can pretty much use anything, including mushrooms. Mushrooms are pretty amazing and easy to use. You only need to chop them on a bench scrapper. Most people don’t have this equipment at home, which is quite disappointing considering it can be used for chopping green chilies, garlic, making dough, and in our case chopping mushrooms. 

After chopping the mushrooms, sautéing half of the white onion and 4-5 segments of garlic in a veggie broth. If you love green bell pepper, you can go ahead to add ½ of it and a ¼ of minced jalapeno.  From the list (Bee-Sights), you can see everything is vegan to help you remain healthy. 

We highly discourage adding any more liquids to the mushrooms as this will deter how much liquid they release on their own.  Keep on simmering and stirring until the mushrooms become nice and soft. 

Section 3: Techniques/ Tip to Improve 

For the best results, we highly recommend one to use some sauce. You can go ahead to use bottle BBQ source or opt for a homemade BBQ sauce.  The decision on what to go with is purely yours to make. If you do not know how to make a BBQ source at home, we got you covered. 

You can easily make a BBQ source indoor at home with a few ingredients from the store. There are various recipes available online which recommend that you add everything to a saucepan and bring it to a low boil before simmering until the sauce thickens.  This is correct but below is steps one should follow:

First, you need to have the vegan version of Worcestershire or A1 sauce available on sale in various outlets.  Add a tablespoon of brown sugar if you like the sauce to taste sweeter.  Low boil it while simmering until it thickens. Once it’s thick and nice, scoop about ½ a cup into the mushroom. At this point, it should look and start smelling like barbeque. 

Section 3.1: Mustard Cole Slaw 

Coleslaw has always been amazing on top of a sandwich which makes it a good thing when preparing Texas Vegan barbeque.  It’s one of the techniques people use to improve the final product. 

Shred about ¼ head cabbage in a long strip. Add a carrot or half of red onion. Add 1/8 of a teaspoon of celery seed, 3 tablespoons of Dijon mustard, and ¼ a cup of Apple Cider Vinegar.

Stir the mixture around until the veggies are evenly coated. 

At this point, we are ready to eat. However, if you like your barbeque messy, one can add extra sources and some slaw before eating.
