11 Vegan Recipes to Enjoy on Memorial Day

For many, Memorial Day weekend is that first “real” long weekend where you get to go outside and enjoy yourself. Whether it’s just you and your family, or a large gathering, we have some of the best Memorial Day weekend recipes to try out.

1. Creamy Dill Potato Salad

You can’t have a good barbecue without a great potato salad! For dill lovers out there, this is the perfect combination of creamy sauce, fresh dill, and your favorite potato.

2. Sweet Potato Black Bean Burgers

A little bit spicy, a little bit sweet, these burgers are delicious and filling. You can bake these in the oven and then warm them up on the grill to save time.

3. Crispy Baked Buffalo Cauliflower “Wings”

Nothing beats these little guys for a perfect barbecue pleaser. You can also use any other type of sauce that you prefer – try teriyaki, hot and sour, or honey garlic for something different.

4. Crunchy Walnut Coleslaw

Yum! This salad is the perfect combination of textures, and you can make as much as you need to feed your crowd. All of the colors in this salad make a beautiful statement on your table.

5. Grilled Asparagus

Now is the perfect time to embrace fresh, local asparagus. If you’ve never tried it grilled, you should – it gives you a perfect pairing of a crunchy interior with a crisp (but cooked) exterior.

6. Lime Grilled Avocado

Wait, grill an avocado? That’s crazy! You might think so, but one bite of this recipe will have you converted. Plus, it’s a cinch to make!

7. Slow Cooker Baked Beans

You work hard all week, so the last thing you want to do is spend all day preparing a dish for a get-together. Work smarter, not harder by putting your slow cooker to work here. No one will know the difference, and you’ll end up with a dish that’s a real crowd pleaser.

8. Chickpea Fries

It’s amazing the amount of creativity there is when vegans experiment with different ingredients. These chickpea fries are just as satisfying as the potato version, if not more so.

9. Spicy Italian Sausages

Not a burger person? No problem – we have an awesome vegan sausage recipe for you to try. Imagine, no more sad-looking vegan hotdogs, you can bring these to the party instead!

10. Black Bean and Pecan Butter Sauce over Grilled Eggplant and Spinach

Not only is the title a mouthful, the dish is too! This meal is a great choice if you’re tired of standard barbecue fare. It’s hearty, looks fantastic, and of course tastes amazing too!

11. Mixed Berry Crisp

That old cast iron pan you have can finally reveal its purpose with this delicious and easy recipe. Feel free to whip up some coconut milk whipped cream or grab a pint of vegan ice cream to go on top. Delicious!
