As a vegan or vegetarian, you have probably often heard something in the lines of: “You’re having a BBQ? Didn’t know you could grill salad”
Not many meat eaters (Meaters) know how many delicious meat-free BBQ dishes can be made on the flames. They are often even more exiting than the classic sausages and burgers.
It is tempting to go to the shop and get a pack of vegetarian sausages for your meat loving guests, who always seem a bit nervous whenever you are treating them to a meal. They are trying their best not to insult you but deep down, they are really just worried that they will be leaving your dinner party hungry.
We at Beyond Skin love treating our carnivore loved ones’ to a right feast, where the guests will leave having had a new adventure to their tastebuds and their minds. This also included a small evil agenda of making the food so tasty, that they completely forget that they went a whole meal without meat. The ultimate test is the meat lovers holy grail – the BBQ party.
As we are saying goodbye to the last days of the summer, we would like to treat you, dear readers, to our favourite vegan and vegetarian BBQ recipes.
No summer BBQ is complete without a fresh salad. A salad is often tossed quickly together and the main focus is kept on the grill. Remember that this doesn’t mean that the salad has to be boring or what you usually would expect when you introduce a salad to the BBQ table.
Oh She Glows is an vegan recipe blog by Canadian Angela Liddon, who explores great vegan recipes while also including little anecdotes from her family life. Cute, quirky and absolutely delicious dishes. We tried her vegan Grilled Salad - so yes – you can grill salad, and it was such a taste adventure that we had to share it.
The Oh She Glows grilled salad is a party in it self as it is packed with flavour. It includes, amongst other things, peppers, zucchini, corn and is covered in both mustard and syrup and much more. Wow!
Honestly Healthy has a lot of various eye-opening salad recipes and we are delighted to introduce you to one of our favourites, that has had amazing responses at out vegan BBQ’s. The message behind Honestly Healthy is Living the Alkaline Way.
“This salad packs a deliciously creamy, flavoursome punch. Mangoes are a fantastic digestive aid and a potent source of magnesium and calcium.”
Avocado, Mango & Dill Salad is a great addition to the table if you have nervous meaters as guests. Avocado is very filling and contain lot’s of protein to give your guests that sense of a full belly, that they are used to.
Avocado is an irresistible creamy superfood, that goes perfect in a summer salad mixed with juicy mango and fresh dill. So delicious, that you will have to make a load because it is one of those salads, that even after you are stuffed, you can’t help but having just one extra bit…because this salad is just so appetising.
We like to use the last flames on the grill for the dessert for a complete BBQ theme.
“Baked Bananas – perhaps the ultimate childhood memory! Wrapping those bananas up and fidgeting for what felt like hours until they were ready. We used to eat them so quickly in fear that a lingering spoon from our parents would swoop in and take the last bit. What better way to get your kids to eat potassium rich energy food – this way you can have it all without the sugar laden refined chocolate too!”
Baked Bananas with Raw Chocolate Sauce from Honestly Healthy is perfect for the BBQ and super easy.
You just need to wrap your bananas in tinfoil and let the magic happen. then add cinnamon, vegan chocolate sauce, almonds and nuts. Y-U-M-M-Y!
