Thanks for all of your wonderful comments on this Win It Wednesday. The winners of the Post-Party Packs are Theresa, Jamie McManus, and Lisa M. Congratulations!

A lot of people don’t need a national holiday to celebrate the long, hot days of summer. Take some sunshine, add a handful of friends, and throw in some grilled veggie burgers, et voilà!—instant party. But because July 4 falls on a Saturday this year, boozy barbecues everywhere might be a bit sloppier for revelers who realize that they can waste a woozy Sunday on the couch.

Our “Post-Party Pack” is the remedy for the frazzled nerves that can result from over-indulging. Filled with PETA’s organic, shade-grown coffee, Tings from Robert’s American Gourmet, coupons for Amy’s Kitchen Roasted Vegetable Pizza, and other dee-lish vegan snacks, it’s sure to help clear a foggy head and quiet a grumbling belly.

How do you win? To score one, simply share your favorite vegan barbecue–friendly food or drink concoction in the comments section below. The three most tantalizing comments will take home the prize.

The contest ends on July 15, 2009, and we’ll choose three comments as the winners on July 17, 2009. Be sure to read our privacy policy and terms and conditions, as you’re agreeing to both by commenting. Check back every Wednesday for new prizes. Good luck!

    It’s not too complicated but my favorite summer drink for a bbq is a raspberry smoothie. I use a bag of frozen raspberries 2 bananas and vanilla soy milk to desired consistensy to make a real yummy vegan and non alcoholic drink! Throw a little protein powder in and these are great for breakfast too!

  • Samantha Miller says:

    I love vegetable shishkabobs. The best part is you can be a picky eater and still enjoy them! I usually use onions sweet peppers and roma tomatoes but all other vegetables can be used as well. Plus you can make your own marinade or find one that tastes great in the store depending on what flavor you like. Easy to make delicious to eat.

  • asheen walsh says:

    My favorite bbq dish is sandwich my fiance and I have whenever my family is having a bbq. My favorite recipe is a bbq tofu sandwich which all ingredients are made from scratch. Two pieces of wheat bread put on the grill slaw bbq sauce which is delicious might at add from scratch is way better than store bought bbq sauce and grilled tofu. When we don’t have grilled tofu we bread the tofu and cook it in the pan or we broil it in the oven. We usually enjoy this sandwich with fresh cut potatoes that we bake in the oven with some spices that we change up the spices. Mmmm… I want to go make this now!

    When having a vegan cookout I prefer to showcase vegetables and avoid using imitation meat products. Grilled portabella mushroom caps served with a cucumbertomatoonion salad and roasted corn are savory and satisfying. For desert strawberries marinated in balsamic vinegar and sugar or watermelon served with minted honey. And of course good people and good music!
