Summer is the best time of the year, if you ask me. The sun is shining, nature is alive and it’s so warm outside! Summer fruits and veggies are in season (and those are the best). From June to August is usually when I eat more berries than I care to admit.

To be fair, I have to stack up on delicious, juicy berries for the rest of the year, don’t I? I do, and so should you. And summer garden parties! This season is truly about good food. Those amazing summer evenings, when you gather around with your friends and eat and drink ’til you pass out (in a food coma).

Those are the days. Luckily, being vegan does not take away this fun from you. I have collected all the best vegan summer recipes for BBQ and grilling parties, so you’ll always have a long list of food and drink you can make!
