Barbecues may traditionally be something of a meat-fest, with burgers, hot dogs and kebabs. But trends are changing, with vegan BBQ food set to be a staple at summer gatherings from now on.
With a few clever tweaks, you can still enjoy a tasty, filling barbecue when you’re following a vegan diet. If you’re not sure what’s going to be on offer at a friend’s house, consider taking your own vegan burgers or sausages, offer to provide a vegan-friendly BBQ side dish or give a few helpful suggestions for plant-based tweaks to popular BBQ favourites.
One of our vegan BBQ side dishes is a simple homemade hummus. It will go down a treat for everyone, regardless of whether they are vegan or not!
Hummus is a versatile side dish that goes with so many other dishes; add a dollop to your burger, put some in a wrap with chargrilled falafel, pile it on to tortilla chips or dip fresh veggie sticks straight in there.
It’s easy to make hummus vegan and this recipe includes a scoop of our Raw Organic Protein Powder to add extra nutrition.
