When it comes to plant-based eating, there is no limit to the creativity of foods, drinks, and recipes that you can enjoy, especially now that the sun is beating down on us and summer has finally arrived. Summer means breaking out the barbeque, firing up the grill, and getting your cocktail shaker ready so you can greet the weekend with a fresh and cool summer get-together with family and friends.
Always on the lookout for great vegan and plant-based recipes, I’ve figured that whoever takes the time to get to know me on my blog should get to share the love with some of my favorite recipes for the summer. Making sure that our users always have access to delicious and nutritious recipes, we’ve curated a great recipe section on Plantx.com, but sometimes you just want to cook for the occasion. Grilling veggies is summer 101, and you don’t even have to be plant-based to enjoy a great grilled zucchini, but if you’re looking to try something different, check out PlantX’s Carrot Dog recipe for a sweet and savory take on a classic hotdog. For an added kick, let your dogs (carrots) soak in some liquid aminos to give it more savory flavor before seasoning with salt, pepper, and a bit of onion and garlic powder.
Burgers are a summer classic, and guests both young and old can enjoy customizing their burger or slider with all their favorite toppings. Recently the writers at PlantX have published an excellent vegetarian black bean burger recipe that’s a perfect option for anybody looking to share the veggie burger love with their families this weekend. There’s nothing that can beat stacking up a veggie burger high with grilled onions, avocado,tomatoes, and topping it off with some jalapeno slices for a spicy kick.
Many colleagues and friends joke around that long days working from home and being indoors more often has them drinking a bit more than usual. Although there was definitely a learning curve, making the switch to working from an at-home office has allowed me to remain just as productive while also cutting down on drinking. Just last weekend, the sun was beaming down so much I reflexively reached for a cold one. If you’re looking to cut down on alcohol, mocktails are a great way to go and are prepared quickly. Introducing mixers like Seedlip’s Spice 94 makes it easy to recreate some of your favorite cocktail recipes like margaritas and spritz sans alcohol. Never miss out on an opportunity to showcase your craft cocktail skills no matter what kind of drinkers you are inviting to the weekend barbeque.
