Plant-Based Food-Harissa Marinade

Happy Memorial Day!

This is a fast marinade made  for our Memorial Day BBQ. I’m marinating seitan slices and tofu steaks in it but I think vegetables or corn on the cob would be great too. Harissa paste is from North Africa and made with chiles blended into a paste with garlic, olive oil, and spices such as caraway and coriander. It’s an extremely versatile paste.

1/8 cup olive oil
1 tbsp. agave nectar
2 tsp Bragg’s liquid aminos
1 tbsp. Harissa paste
Mix everything together and marinate vegetables or protein for at least one hour. Turn in a couple of times so everything gets coated.

About Green Mom

Fredrica Syren, the author and founder of Green-Mom.com, was born in Sweden. Her mother was a classically trained chef who introduced her to many eclectic flavors and skills at a young age. Her mom’s passion for the outdoors and gardening planted the seed for her own love of nature and healthy eating. She received a degree in journalism and has worked as a print, Internet and broadcasting journalist for many years with big businesses within Europe and the United States. After her mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer and she with pre-cancer, Fredrica changed her career to become a full time yoga teacher and activist. A longtime world traveler, foodie and career woman, she was exposed to many facets of life, but nothing inspired her more than becoming a mom. After her first-born, Fredrica began a food blog focusing on local, seasonal, organic & vegetarian dishes. Years of food blogging developed into the cookbook Yummy in My Tummy, Healthy Cooking for the Whole Family. Upon the arrival of her second child, Fredrica founded Green-Mom.com. Her vision was to establish a site providing insight about gardening, home and personal care, baby & child, and of course food & nutrition. Green-Mom.com hosts many talented writers shedding light on ways to incorporate eco-friendly and nutritious practices for busy families. She is an advocate for organic, local and sustainable businesses. Fredrica hopes to inspire social change through her lifestyle, passion and business.
