Summer Grilling Ideas For Vegans:
Balsamic Garlic Grilled Mushrooms
I find that nothing jazzes things up better than skewering some mushrooms, which are by far, my favorite veggie. Why? They turn really juicy when you grill them. Plus, they’re so deliciously tasty, that you’re your meat lover friends will want a piece of these. Make sure to cook plenty of these!
Sticky Sesame Cauliflower Wings
While your meat lover friends are digging into Buffalo wings, your vegan friends won’t be left out because they can dig into these scrumptious veggie wings. Not only is cauliflower healthier, but it tastes great when properly prepared and seasoned.
Grilled Sweet Potato
The sweet and creamy innards of these wedges and their crispy skin exterior will make your vegan friends’ mouths water. Besides, sweet potatoes go with just about anything, so enjoy them with guacamole or hummus if you’re looking for an extra kick.
Summer Grilling Ideas For Vegetarians:
Beyond Meat Burgers
I absolutely hate meat substitutes and don’t even get me started on garden burgers (YUCK). So needless to say I was not at all excited to try Beyond Meat when a friend recommends them. After one bite of these, I was literally eating my words. These things are AMAZING and for me to admit that you know they must be good. I know how difficult it is to find meat substitutes that actually taste like meat but if you’re looking stop right here, your search is done.
If you will have some vegetarians at your next bbq I promise you they will love you forever if you throw a few of these on the grill. Yeck, you might even convert some meat eaters, they really do taste that good.
If you want some grilling ideas for vegans and vegetarians, then grill them some juicy Beyond Meat Burgers. They taste just as tender and chewy as the real thing, it’s simply unbelievable. Pair them up with garlic homemade mayo and watch everyone’s mouths water.
Grilled Mexican Corn
I love how flavorful and delicious Mexican corn tastes, especially after it’s been grilled to the point where the kernels have started to char. Add some chili powder for that extra spicy kick if you’d like. Every bite will be amazingly addicting.
Grilled Cheesy Garlic Potatoes
This side dish blends the tender and flavorful mix of Parmesan and garlic salt. But best of all, after you’re done, you can roll the aluminum foil and throw it out. See? Not only is it tasty, but it makes cleaning up a breeze.
Summer Grilling Ideas For Meat Lovers
Grilled Jerk Pineapple Shrimp Skewers
You can still eat meat and watch your figure. Mix a few shrimps to get your weekly dose of Omega 3, and mix it up with the tanginess of pineapples. Think of it as a sweet and sour meal that your taste buds will thank you for.
Bacon Wrapped Grilled Asparagus
Grilled asparagus with bacon is a simple recipe that also gives you an excuse to enjoy bacon and is a great way to start the spring/summer grilling season.
