Vegetarian Recipes for Summer Cookouts
Summertime means outdoor fun, like cookouts with the family and picnics on a blanket in the sun! BBQs are a fun way to get people together, but what if your friends have dietary restrictions or are vegetarian?
These recipes are meatless, easy to make, and won’t take you away from catching rays in the summer sun.
To kick off this cookout checklist, here is the ultimate veggie burger! Nothing beats a homemade burg that is packed with your favorite veggies, like mushrooms, carrots, and even onions. Each patty has 1 cup of vegetables! High in fiber and full of flavor, you’ll want to pre-make a few of these to have handy to throw on the grill when the weather’s nice.
Avocado sauce and corn on the cob? You read that right. With how perfectly these flavors balance together, this dish will surely be a huge hit! Make sure the husks are hanging off the grill, otherwise you’ll find them burning up fast. Just put the raw corn on the grill and rotate! To make the avocado dressing, you’ll need a food processor and just a handful of ingredients! So simple.
Can’t have a cookout without pasta salad, right? All you need is 10 ingredients and 15 minutes to make the best vegan-friendly side dish. This recipe calls for cherry tomatoes, black olives and red onion, but you can add any of your favorite vegetables to make this dish unique. Have leftovers? Pasta salad holds up for 4-5 days in the fridge which means healthy lunches for days!
An avocado’s take on French Fries, does it get any better than that? These “fries” make for the perfect BBQ dish by combining our love for avocadoes with a creamy chipotle lime sauce for dipping. Just toss the avocado slices in the seasoning mixture, dip in buttermilk, and coat with breadcrumbs! After baking for 28-32 minutes, you’re ready for snacking.
