It’s summer! And here in the Midwest that means it’s BBQ season (though my husband would argue that BBQ season lasts all year long).
When I first started planning what I called “The Vegan Project” on Pinterest, one of the first things I started pinning for was BBQs. Since my husband likes to grill so much, I knew I had to have recipes on-hand for side dishes and for myself. Plus, Goo is not a meat-eater (we joke that she was born vegetarian) so it was nice to have dishes she would eat as well.
Think you can’t be Vegan and have a BBQ? Think again! Here are some of the recipes I pinned to plan for the perfect Vegan BBQ.
I haven’t tried these yet, but they look amazing! Might just have Guy grill these the next time he decides to have a weeknight BBQ.
Great as a side dish or dessert!
I’ve made this a BUNCH of times now. Super easy to make and is the best potato salad on the planet. My husband says it’s better than non-vegan.
I made this for the 4th of July BBQ and it was a hit! For mine I used lemon instead of lime. It was a subtle, but yummy flavor.
As for the Main Dishes…
Want to go for burgers? Try Dr. Praeger’s veggie burgers. They are amazing! And I can actually read the ingredients list! Grill like you would any other burger, top it with lettuce tomato and vegan mayo and take a big juicy bite!
Want to go for hot dogs? There are plenty of vegan options available. Just check the health food dept in your local grocery store.
Want to go for something more daring? I hear you can grill tofu!
