As soon as we mention the word ‘barbecue’, our mind transports us to the garden in summer, cooking up a meat-feast of burgers and hot dogs. For many vegans and vegetarians, it can be hard to know what to serve at a meat-free BBQ.
There are plenty of ways to make tweaks to some of your favourite BBQ staples to ensure that your summer gathering is vegan-friendly. Consider cooking up some vegan burgers and sausages in the oven or on a separate grill, as well as preparing a couple of vegan BBQ side dishes.
Don’t forget about dessert too. We’ve got one of the easiest vegan-friendly BBQ desserts that everyone will love – barbecued banana splits!
A barbecued banana that’s blackened on the outside, but warm and gooey in the middle, is a delicious summer evening treat. Simply wrap your bananas in foil and pop onto the barbecue to cook.
Take the edge off the heat and that distinctive chargrilled taste with a scoop of vanilla or chocolate-flavoured vegan whip with added protein. We used our vegan-friendly Garden of Life Raw Organic Protein Powder in Vanilla, which is also available in a tasty Chocolate flavour and Vanilla Chai. Top with dark chocolate shavings that’ll melt in your mouth to create a filling, tasty, plant-based BBQ dessert.
