Get your apron out, dust off those tongs, and pray for a sunny day: Vegan BBQ Week runs from 2 to 11 July, and it’s time to grill up a feast. From the ultimate vegan burger to wonderful jumbo hot dogs, we’ve gathered our favourite BBQ recipes to impress even the most ardent meat-eaters.
Check out the recipes below, and share photos of your summer feast with us by using the hashtag #VeganBBQWeek.
Vivera has a huge range of meaty vegan goodness to choose from, and this BBQ season, we think our favourite might just be the wonderful Jumbo Plant Dogs – huge in size and flavour. They’re high in protein and a source of iron and vitamin B12, too – a true BBQ hero!
A delicious taste of travel at home, these vegan tandoori kebabs (adapted from a recipe by Goodlife) are perfect for al fresco dining this summer. Made with Goodlife veggie protein balls, they pack a plant-protein punch!
These tasty burgers, adapted from a recipe by Day Radley, have a firm texture and a meaty flavour – perfect for the BBQ. They’re delicious on their own, but we love them sandwiched in a bun with a slice of melty vegan cheese.
Cucumber is the new cauliflower. When grilled, it has a great bite but also little pockets of water which get a little smoky. This dish, adapted from a recipe by Neil Rankin, calls for getting your vegetables nice and charred and then blitzing that flavour into the sauce for maximum smokiness. That’s one of the great thing about vegetables – because they’re lower in sugar, you can take them further on a grill.
Goodlife has teamed up with plant-based foodie What Luce Eats (@whatluceeats) to share a recipe created just for Vegan BBQ Week. Packed full of flavour and seasoned with a mix of smoked paprika, garlic, olive oil, and chilli, these skewers are guaranteed to leave your garden guests wanting seconds.
