Veganise Your BBQ

All you need to pull off a plant-based BBQ

It’s that time of year again where we take full advantage of the hot weather, bust out our summer clothes and dig out the coals – barbecue season is here! But as you go from garden to garden, the pressure starts to mount as you realise it’ll soon be your turn to host a vegan BBQ – most likely to meat-eating friends and family members. As ‘traditional’ BBQs usually feature meat-based products as their centrepieces, some people still hold the belief that vegans have no choice but to go hungry as they watch others tuck into the spread. But fear not – those days have long gone, and as vegans, this is our time to shine and show the world that real barbecues should be plant-based.

Be prepared, be very prepared

Don’t be the person that throws together some last-minute plans, to fall short on your guest’s expectations. Make sure you know exactly who is coming and tailor your menu to fit their dietary needs. This means stocking up in advance and ensuring you have enough of everything – after all, we don’t want there to be any fights over who has the last tofu skewer! To guarantee that your day is an allround hit, organise some fun games to play in between serving times – it may also be wise to have a back up plan, just in case the weather is a let down…

About PlantBased

July is undoubtedly the best month of the year; summer is in full swing, the days are longer, and, if you’re lucky, you may be able to enjoy a few drinks in the sunshine after work. It’s also the time of year where our diaries are jam-packed with BBQs – but, as vegans, this can sometimes be met with a side of anxiety if our social groups are predominantly meat eaters. On page 28, you will find everything you need to know if you’re planning to host your own BBQ – or should we say, BVQ – from handy tips, to mouth-watering recipes. But, if grilled food isn’t really your thing, you may want to experiment with raw food recipes. Following a diet that mainly consists of uncooked foods may seem slightly tricky to begin with, but we’ve served up a number of dishes that are impossible to resist – find them on page 46. They’re all easy-to-make and super healthy – perfect for those trying to eat well before their summer holiday. Speaking of which, have you booked yours yet? Whether you plan on staying close to home, or you fancy jetting off to a far away island, make sure you follow our Summer Survival Guide, on page 18. Here, we share all you need to know to ensure you have a care-free, vegan holiday. Before I go, I just want to recommend the Samphire and Spinach Linguine on page 94. It’s a pretty simple dish, but it will go down a treat with dinner party guests – especially if it’s served outside with an ice cold drink. Enjoy the issue!
