Vegan Grilled Pineapple Spears



Vegan Grilled Pineapple Spears | Food and Nutrition Magazine | Stone Soup Blog

My family and I have been eating mostly plant-based foods for the past few months, and I find that it's so easy to cook and bake vegan now. One of the first finds I had when I started on this venture was vegan butter. I've made buttery pasta sauces, biscuits and scones with it.

Now that it's warm outside, my husband fires up the grill for these delicious Vegan Grilled Pineapple Spears. They're a perfect dessert, whether served by themselves or with almond milk ice cream.
