1. Cauliflower Wings

But I love Buffalo Wings too much… ✨ Well, my non vegan friends, you don't have to stop loving them! These super tasty, and incredibly photogenic buffalo wings are made using Cauliflower!! When I first experienced one of these, my life was changed. You can have the same flavor, crispness, and sauces, without all the cruelty! I can guarantee that no chicken wants you eating their body! ✨ If you've never had Cauliflower Buffalo Wings, you should definitely go get some…or make them yourself. They are super [email protected] ❤️✌? #vegan #govegan #plantbased #veganism #veganeats #veganfoodporn #veganfood #plantpowered #vegansofig #hclf #plantbasedfood #healthylifestyle #seattlevegan #foodie #eeeeeats #vegansofinstagram #veganlunch #veganguy #foodblogger #veganfoodshare #veganfoodlovers #veganfoodie #foodphotography #foodphotos #buffalowings #buffalo #cauliflower #cauliflowerwings #yum #spicy

Cauliflower wings always make a great excuse to slather on the vegan BBQ sauce. Always.

2. Corn

Having a BBQ party without grilled corn is like having a peanut butter sandwich without any jelly. Yeah, it’s still good, but it’s just not the same, amirite?

3. Hot Dogs

Vegan hot dogs like Lightlife’s Smart Dogs taste identical to the hot dogs you grew up with. No further explanation required. Yum!

4. Vegetable Skewers

There’s something extra special about grilled onions and bell peppers. Cube your fave root veggies and fire up the grill.

5. Veggie Burgers

Whether you choose a super-delish veggie burger from Beyond Meat, Boca, or Field Roast or make your own, the types of vegan patties that you can grill are virtually endless. Yum!

6. Veggie “Chicken”

Add your fave vegan BBQ sauce to Quorn Vegan Chik’n Cutlets and you’ll have a crowd-pleaser for sure.

7. Watermelon

Grilled watermelon, aka “watermelon steaks,” drizzled in a sweet sauce like raspberry vinaigrette, is so delish. Be sure to try it out this summer—you won’t be disappointed.

Need some sides to go along with these perfect foods?

No worries—we’ve got you covered:

1. Creamy Potato Salad

2. Mac ‘n’ Cheese

3. Pasta Salad

•SUMMER PASTA SALAD• Perfect for side dishes during the BBQ season. Ancient grains GF pasta, fresh herbs <dill + parsley> vegan mayo, stone ground mustard, sriracha, ACV and whatever veggies sound the best. I used heirloom cherry tomatoes, celery and red onion. The more fresh herbs the better I think. PS: the pasta soaks up the dressing as it sits so be generous! ???? #veganpastasalad #vegansidedish #veganbbq #vegansides #glutenfree #glutenfreevegan #carbthefuckup _________ • • • • • #vegan #rabbitfood #veganeats #plantmagic #whatvegansdo #foodismagic #whatveganseat #veganfoodshare #tacomavegan #pnwvegan #vegansofig #plantbased #plantpowered #veganyogi #foodisart #foodismedicine #foodphotography #bestofvegan #cleaneating #healthylifestyle #veganrecipes #plantbasedlife #eatlikeyougiveafuck
