After appetizers and salads, the main dish is the star of the 4th of July! So, let's wow them with vegan BBQ dishes that will sparkle like fireworks.
My kids love Vegan Coney Dogs! So, on the 4th of July, I always make my famous Vegan Coney Chili Sauce for veggies dogs. If you prefer a carrot dog instead, just add the sauce to the top and any other fun add ons.
Similarly, tempeh kabobs are vibrant and tasty. Tempeh kabobs are marinated and threaded with pineapple and red onion with two marinade recipes to choose from. Choose it sweet and sassy or BBQ!
And, everyone loves a great burger! One of my family's favorite burgers is a Beet Burger! Not only is it simple to make, but it grills well and doesn't fall apart when you eat it. If you don't have a grill, not worries; it cooks in a pan just as well.
Portobello mushrooms, however, are an even easier grilling option fo the 4th of July. Portobello mushrooms are a healthy meat substitute for the perfect grilled portobello mushroom burger, filled with your favorite burger toppings, all tucked inside the cap. Cook dinner in under 10 minutes!
However, if you are craving BBQ, you will love this pulled pork sweet potato sandwich recipe. Not only is it easy to make, but you pulled pork sweet potato sandwiches will disappear from your dinner table in minutes.
Even though I always make a lot of different foods for 4th of July, I always have to make Mexican Street Corn Vegan! At my house, everyone loves dressing their grilled corn with the dishes of vegan goodies like a corn salad bar. Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of eating my Mexican Street Corn never leaves my house without the recipe.
Although I'm personally not a dessert fan, I often make a nice palate-pleasing light way to end dinner with Simple Vegan Chocolate Covered Strawberries. Or, I ask my guests to bring dessert! Strawberries, though simple and sweet, are perfect after a healthy vegan meal.
