22 Vegan BBQ Recipes – For Summer
Here are 22 Vegan BBQ Recipes for you to try this summer. Even vegans like to barbecue! It almost sounds like an oxymoron doesn’t it? When I think of a barbecue I think of hamburgers, hot dogs, ribs etc. A literal meat fest with nigh a vegetable in sight. Aside from some sugary coleslaw and roasted corn with butter.
Every summer I always eat before I go to a BBQ. There really aren’t a lot of options for vegans at a BBQ. So I thought, why not have a vegan BBQ recipe round up? I mean everyone loves BBQ sauce. So why not a vegan BBQ sauce recipe? Most grilled vegetables are over cooked, burned or greasy. Hardly fodder for any plant based, vegan or person on a healing diet.
With Memorial Day just a few weeks away. And with restaurants still closed due to COVID-19 most of us will be dining at home.
So I wanted to share these vegan BBQ recipes to inspire you to fall in love with barbecuing again. I’m grateful to the bloggers who shared their work with me so that I could put this vegan recipe round up together for you.
