Vegan Memorial Day Recipes!

Need a little help thinking about what to make for Memorial day this year? Fear not! I have some great ideas for you that are extremely delicious and easy to make.

(Follow Clockwise starting in the Upper Left Corner)

  1. Strawberry BBQ Sauce on a Tempeh Sandwich– A savory BBQ sauce with a hint of sweetness from ripe strawberries that you can use for all of your grilling needs.
  2. Spicy Mushroom Tacos in Soft Eggplant shells with Cheese Sauce– Forget using disposable utensils, just use your hands for these tasty tacos that have a kick to them.
  3. Grilled Portobello Burger with Caramelized Onions– Here is another dish that you can use on your grill, and with caramelized onions as a topping, you can’t go wrong.
  4. Beer Battered Zucchini Sticks & Onion Rings– Today is a holiday, why not break out the foods you wouldn’t normally indulge in. It’s paired with an amazing raw ranch dressing, that evens it out, right? 😉

  1. Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup– This soup is great by itself or served with some of your favorite tortilla chips, plus it’s easy to self-serve when it is cooking in the crock pot!
  2. Creamy Greek Summer Salad– A refreshing, light, and yummy salad that can be eaten as a side, used as a dip for crunchy pita chips or placed in a wrap (maybe with baked falafel?).
  3. Baked Spicy Sweet Potato Tots with Chipotle Aioli– These sweet potato tots are baked instead of fried, and filled with tons of Vitamin A; pair it with a chipotle sun-dried tomato aioli and you’ve got a winning combination!
  4. Squash Queso Dip– I can’t say that this dip is particularly cheesy, but it definitely has some great color and flavors. Plus, what is a get-together without dips?

I hope that you all have a great Memorial Day, and take time to remember those that have dedicated themselves to protecting our country. Stay safe out there! :)
