Vegan Summer Recipes for BBQ and Grilling
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!
You will find the yummies in the following order:
- main dish & salads
Ice cream floating in drinks? Yes, summer has to be the greatest thing ever invented.
Creamy, delicious and will make you feel like you are dancing on a Hawaiian beach. Make this Pineapple Cooler for a guaranteed party favorite!
Berries are THE summer fruit, so you can’t go wrong putting some of them in your drinks. Because mojitos are great, but mojitos with berries are the absolute best.
Lemon and peach iced teas are really tasty, but store-bought versions tend to have an enormous amount of sugar and artificial stuff in them. Solution? Make your own at home, so you can adjust the ingredients to your liking.
The thought of ice cold melon juice on a scorching summer eve, makes me really happy. Melons have a really high water content, so they are perfect for juicing.
This patriotic margarita will definitely be a memorable addition to any 4th of July BBQ. Get ready to hand out the recipe, because everyone will be asking for it.
Peach and watermelon together in a glass. Yumminess, overload!
10. BBQ Tofu Burger
No summer BBQ is the same without a huge bowl of grilled vegetables. Go crazy. Anything you have at home, you can grill it!
Ditch the cute baby animals and go for these heavenly seitan ribs. Guilt-free and a thousand times more delicious.
Are you bored of salads? Put your summer squash into a sammie! The perfect summer lunch.
Serve some baked beans at your BBQ to win the hearts of every generation.
When it comes to food, Italians win everything. Who would have thought that “soggy” bread is actually delicious? It’s the best, when your bread chunks get soaked in olive oil. Panzanella is just exquisite.
15. Carrot Hot Dogs
Hot dogs are a must have at garden parties. Make them from carrots for an easy, veganized meal.
Crispy, BBQ and tofu. What else do you need for an absolutely mouthwatering dish?
Green beans are super healthy and give a fantastic, high-protein base for your salad, so make sure to pack your bowls full of them!
The way you cut your veggies makes a huge difference. Just by cutting the tomatoes into thin slices, you can create something really fancy and decorative.
No one can resist a juicy burger, especially if it’s packed with fresh veggies.
Zucchini is not the most flavorful veggie in the world, but a lemon-garlick combo works wonders on it.
Collard greens swapped for tortilla wraps? Talk about a superb clean eating hack.
This mix salad is simple, but that’s where its deliciousness comes from.
Cauliflower steak is best steak. Period.
Another amazing zucchini recipe, that is super easy to make and is bursting with flavors.
Food bowls might not be the most popular choice for garden parties, but you can always make it a fun DIY “choose your own ingredients” thing. This yummy recipe is definitely worth it.
Instead of just serving corn on the cob, make these awesome, crunchy, jalapeno fritters.
Mushroom skewers are super easy to make and are a perfect choice for grilling.
28. Summer Slaw
A tasty cabbage slaw is a really good side dish to your heavier main dishes.
BBQ chickpeas and lettuce provide a light dinner option, that is also flavorful and filling.
A big bowl of Southern-stye collard greens can be a nice addition to your table. These greens are not only healthy, but taste amazing as well.
If you are hosting a summer BBQ, you should really provide a tasty ranch dressing, so people can customize their salads and grilled veggies. They will be really grateful!
Simple, but tasty.
Brussels sprouts make a surprisingly good BBQ flavored side dish.
Potato salad is a classic, no matter the season.
Pesto pasta is such an amazing dish as it is, but when you add grilled veggies, it becomes the ultimate summer meal.
