Happy Memorial Day! I am so grateful for this holiday weekend!! Although I have been working a bit over the last few days, I have been having lots of fun too! We celebrated yesterday with a BBQ at my aunt and uncle’s house. Memorial Day weekend always feels like the kick-off to grill season to me!
As much as I love a good veggie burger, by the end of my third BBQ of the season, I am ready for anything but! Many people think a plant-based diet is restricted but with this recipe round-up, I hope to show how diverse, vibrant and creative vegan food can be. The 10 choices below will ensure you’ll have no shortage of foods to grill besides burgers this grill season!!
This is one of my favorite meals to grill. It’s easy to make with whatever vegetables you have on hand, and makes a beautiful presentation. I use hummus between the layers, but it would taste delicious with whatever dip or spread you choose.
I love kabobs! They are fun and colorful – and quick and easy to put together. These kabobs have a tropical taste profile, but you could change these up a dozen other ways depending on the seasonings and marinades you choose.
This recipe from Minimalist Baker is my go-to option for the grill any day of the week. The avocado chimichurri is to die for!
Instead of tossing your salad, try grilling it! This recipe from Blissful Basil is such a flavorful way to enjoy a Caesar salad – and fun too!
Tofu steaks are easy to prepare on the grill and super versatile. Just marinade or top with whatever sauce or condiments you’re in the mood for. This recipe from Steph in Thyme is perfect for grilling season.
These tacos from Leslie Durso aren’t just for Taco Tuesday. My extended family loves to break out the carne asada for BBQs so this is a great plant-based option for me to keep with the menu theme.
Polenta makes a delicious entree. It is delish with this zucchini salsa from Love & Lemons. It’s a beautiful, elegant dish for those nights when you want something a little fancier from the grill.
This recipe had me at Mediterranean, but stole my heart at avocado – two of my favorite things! Food Faith Fitness has won me over with this one!!
If you haven’t tried grilling a cauliflower steak yet, you are missing out. I typically go for a citrus marinade, but this recipe from All Roads Lead To Healthy is super easy with your favorite BBQ sauce.
These peppers from Veganosity are stuffed full of flavor. This is a great template for creating your own stuffed pepper. Just switch out the grains and veggies for a variety of recipe options.
