Vegan/Vegetarian BBQ ideas

BBQ season is almost upon us and soon the invites will come flooding in, so what to bring?

Here’s a few takes on the regular BBQ line up:

Appetizer idea:

1. Caprese Salad: Tomato and grilled eggplant + cheese, or tomato/basil and “cheese”

Easy to make and pretty dang tasty.

Entrée:
2. Portobello burgers

 

Sides:
3. Potato/macaroni salad

Pretty easy to make, just add VEGENAISE® and maybe use tofu for the eggs. I’m pretty simple with my potato/macaroni salads, you can add green onion, celery, carrots etc., however you please.

This girl’s face just made me laugh I had to post this video:

Dessert:
3. Grilled Pineapple with Coconut

Ingredients:

2 tbsp honey or agave nectar
2 tbsp dark rum
1 tsp lemon juice
4 or 5 slices fresh pineapple
1 cup flaked coconut

Preparation:
Whisk together the honey (or agave nectar), rum and lemon juice in a wide dish. Add the pineapple and coat well. Allow the pineapple to marinate for at least one hour in the refrigerator.

Lightly grease your grill and fire up to a medium heat.

Coat the pineapple with coconut on both sides, pressing the coconut into the pineapple to get it to stick. Grill on both sides for about 8 to 10 minutes.

Hope this helps with BBQ ideas and what to bring to a party.

Happy eating!
