Grill Up these 7 Plant-Based Recipes for a Meatless Memorial Day

May 27th, 2019


Grilling season is officially here, and while many may associate hot dogs and hamburgers with outdoor cooking, there are endless ways to satisfy your hungry guests with meatless ingredients. You might decide to skewer a mélange of veggies on a kebab, give new life to an avocado or stick a few ears of corn on the grill. The limit is your imagination.

As an added bonus, meatless recipes tend to cost less and be better for both the planet’s and your health compared to their meaty counterparts.

This Memorial Day is the perfect opportunity to host a meatless BBQ; if your group is craving something sandwiched between a bun, consider one of these mouthwatering meatless burgers. For recipes more out of the box, check out these unexpected fruits and veggies, including grapes and romaine lettuce, that truly shine when grilled.
