18 Vegan Meats for Your Summer Barbecue
Summer barbecues can leave a vegan feeling isolated and hungry. It’s no fun to just munch on fruit salad and potato chips (been there!) while everyone else grills up hearty burgers and dogs. If you’re invited to a picnic or BBQ, it’s best to be proactive and bring your own food — and enough to share, of course! Ask if there is anything you can make to bring so you can veganize it. However, faux meats are often one of those foods that are better off bought as it can be difficult to get the consistency and taste right. From seitan to quinoa, more vegan meat brands are popping up and expanding their products. Below are the ones we know are palm oil free (look for vegetable glycerin or straight up palm oil in the ingredients). Keep this list handy so at your next cook out, you won’t feel left out.
If you are down to bring something homemade, here are some of our favorite recipes from around the web fit for a hungry crowd. Don't even bother to tell them it's vegan. 😉
- Cauliflower Buffalo Wings
- Buffalo Oyster Mushrooms
- Easy Grillable Veggie Burgers
- Vegan "Pulled Pork" Sandwich
