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! :)
