Top 5 Vegan Recipes For A Summer BBQ

Much to the UK’s disbelief, this summer’s heatwave lasted longer than a week which definitely means it’s time to crack out the barbecue if you haven’t already! The weather presents the perfect opportunity to gather family and/or friends to celebrate with a garden party, so we’ve collated our favourite vegan recipes for summer. And even when the clouds inevitably open, we still have everything from light and healthier bites through to BBQ classics for you to enjoy indoors!

  • 1. Falafel Summer Rolls with Spicy Avocado Dip

    Just because it’s BBQ season doesn’t mean you have to resort to BBQ staples. In this heat, something a little lighter than your standard burger and hot dogs might be preferable. This vegan falafel summer roll recipe is a nod to Vietnamese street food, perfect if you’re in need of something fresh for your garden party. This dish can be prepped and served in around half an hour – perfect to wow your guests.

    Sometimes at a BBQ you don’t want to stray too far away from what you and your guests know, especially if you’re catering for kids! That’s why our vegan chimichurri tofu skewers are perfect for a traditional looking barbecue favourite with a twist. This Argentinian herb sauce acts as both a marinade and finishing touch drizzled over your skewers.

  • 3. Tofu Pineapple Crush

    What would a garden party be without a sweet treat to finish? Our vegan tofu pineapple crush is definitely a show-stopper! Whether you need a tropical dessert or a refreshing drink for your party, adding tofu is an ideal way to add a little extra creaminess to the recipe. You could even add a splash or two of alcohol for the older attendees; rum or vodka goes perfectly.
