Norfolk, Va. – As many Americans prepare to celebrate their first in-person Fourth of July since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic—during which sales of vegan food rose by 90 percent—PETA is sharing its Top Vegan BBQ Recipes.

  • BBQ Ribs to Die For (That No One Had to Die For)—a saucy, savory way to let gentle pigs enjoy their freedom, too
  • Speaking of pigs, forget the pulled pork—try BBQ Jackfruit Sandwiches, topped with a quick & easy avocado veggie slaw
  • Dress up a cookout classic with Vegan Hot Dogs Done Four Ways: A Totcho Dog (that’s tater tots and nacho cheese), a Mac and Cheese Dog, a Tex-Mex Dog, and a French Onion Dog.
  • Round out the BBQ plate with Creamy Dill Potato Salad or NFL Network Host Erin Coscarelli’s Coleslaw—they’re both egg-free, so they’re kind to chickens and allergen-friendly.
  • Don’t forget dessert: A Vegan Flag Cake made with fresh berries and coconut whipped cream is a simple-but-show-stopping way to celebrate the Fourth.
  • Wash it all down with PETA’s top vegan beers—and say cheers to celebrating the holiday in a way that’s as delicious as it is kind to animals!

More of our recipes on our website—they’re perfect for the Fourth of July (or the 5th, 6th, or any of the other 364 days of the year!). For more information, please visit PETA.org or follow the group on TwitterFacebook, or Instagram.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
