I'm not a fan of the whole low-fat vegan thing, but this is an excellent recipe from Fat Free Vegan. I left out the liquid smoke because I don't have any, and it sounds kinda dangerous anyway. I don't have a grill so I used the baking method that she links to at the end of the recipe. The first time I made this I tried to make my own barbecue sauce but it tasted more like cocktail sauce without the liquid smoke, so this time I was lazy and just used some Trader Joe's barbecue sauce. The green beans were boiled and then stir-fried in olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper, and if you can't tell, that yellowish lump is mashed potatoes. It's an All-American meal in honor of our amazing new options for VP.
