Meatless BBQ Plates for Independence Day

We’re getting to that time of year when we are celebrating holidays back to back! What’s next? The 4th of July of course! If there is any better time to break out the vegan BBQ options, it’s now!

Considering many BBQs don’t have the average vegan in mind, we wanted to help you spruce up your cook-out and expand your table items! Vegan or not, these dishes will be a hit for guests who are looking to leave the meat on the grill this year.

Whether it’s the 4th of July or not, next time you’re grilling, give these vegan options a try:

Buffalo Cauliflower

Looking for that zesty kick of buffalo sauce? Look no further. Try out a batch of smothered buffalo cauliflower to get your BBQ guests ready for the main course. You can get these guys just as crispy as you’d like. Baking your cauliflower will give it that crispy, tasteful pop that you are sure to love. Check out this simple and easy recipe via vegan.com here .

Grilled Zucchini

Since the grill is already going, go ahead and throw some grilled zucchini on the fire! Zucchini is one of those veggies that can make any dish taste delicious. Throw some of your favorite seasoning on sliced zucchini and get to licking those fingers! Careful not to over-grill these guys, they can be grilled to perfection is just under 5 minutes.

Portobello Mushroom Burgers

There are so many ways to make a vegan burger – and we mean GOOD ways! You might even have some meat eaters fooled with this one. A portobello mushroom burger is a great healthy way to get your fill of a vegan burger at next week’s BBQ. Need help on this one? Here’s a great way to make your burgers via All Recipes.

Jackfruit Sandwiches

If you’re new to jackfruit, we can catch you up to speed. Jackfruit is a very popular and sustainable meat alternative. It is a relative to figs and breadfruit that is primarily grown in tropical areas. Lucky for us here in non-tropical climates, we can find Jackfruit in our local grocery stores! Brands like Upton’s Naturals package up pre-seasoned jackfruit in popular forms like carnitas and BBQ! Consider this plate the vegan’s alternative to a pulled pork sandwich.

These Wingz?

We’ve saved the best for last with the star of the show! A plate of These Wingz? can be the appetizer, entree and the desert! Seriously – you’ll love the taste of the many different flavors that we have to offer. Connect with us via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter for more information on where you can get your taste.

Don’t those sound yummy?? We thought so! You’ll need something to wash all of this goodness down. Check out this Mint Watermelonade recipe we found from Peta
