BBQ Table

Main Dishes

Try this recipe for black-bean veggie burgers or use beefless burger patties made by Gardein or Beyond Meat.

Vegan beer brats will make everyone happy.

Gardein’s beefless tips make the perfect kebab.

Sides

 No cookout is complete without a delicious pasta salad.

It may be expected, but a green salad is necessary to cleanse the palate. Make it memorable!

Try this creamy potato salad.

Grill up some corn.

Dessert

I love getting creative with festive desserts. You can add fresh fruit to a gelatin alternative to make a fun treat.

A simple way to spruce up your ice-cream cones is to dip them in chocolate and sprinkles.

And, of course, you must have fruit—a sweet and simple way to end a meal!

Drinks

Nothing rejuvenates me more on a warm day under the sun than a good old-fashioned iced tea. Get your own glassware at the PETA Shop.

Voilà! You’re ready to have the best vegan barbecue ever!
