Grilling season can have many of us craving light yet satisfying foods. Look no further - plant-based recipes offer nutritious and delicious ingredients like veggies, whole grains and legumes, put together in fun, flavorful dishes.
Meat isn’t a mandatory for creating juicy burgers. And these are flippin’ delicious with ingredients ranging from dairy-free cheese to fresh fruit. One of our most popular plant-based burger recipes is Plant-based Cheeseburgers, featuring Simple Truth™ Plant-based Grinds. They’re a great source of plant-based protein and feature dairy-free toppings, plus a flavorful kick from red salsa.
Plant-based burgers can be topped with really anything your stomach desires, including avocado, mango, cucumber, grilled veggies and of course the traditional players, like lettuce, tomato and onion. Plus, grilling your bun and melting dairy-free cheese on the patty while it’s grilling are easy ways to make it the best plant-based burger ever. Plant-based Grilled Burgers with Chile Lime Pineapple and Avocado, Plant-based Grilled Mediterranean Patties, and Plant-based Burgers with Mango Chutney and Cucumber are all plant-based proof of this!
Plant-based meals are the perfect match for international flavors. Go globetrotting the next time you grill with a variety of plant-based dishes. Our Grilled Tofu Tacos with Avocado Cream make a simple plant-based entrée for a delicious alternative to traditional meat fillings. Simply grill your tofu in a grill pan over medium heat for 1-2 minutes on each side. And it features zesty toppings, like an unbelievably delicious avocado cream sauce made with apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and cilantro, along with crunchy cabbage slaw to create the perfect light bite.
Plant-based Grilled Stuffed Burritos make another filling and flavorful main course packed with refried beans, rice, veggies and more. Or if you enjoy seafood, Shrimp Boil Foil Packets make an easy all-in-one dish, combining shrimp with plant-based sausage, corn and potatoes in a no-mess foil packet.
Fresh vegetables can be your summer menu’s main muse with Grilled Tortellini Vegetable Skewers and Grilled Mushroom Banh Mi. The colorful skewers couldn’t be easier, and the banh mi sandwich features a delightful combo of ingredients with pork swapped for marinated mushrooms, plus shredded carrot, cilantro, Sriracha, plant-based mayo and more on a crusty baguette.
Plant-based has a place in every part of the meal, and the sides are no exception. Getting servings of all the healthy, good-for-you stuff is easy with these plant-based recipes. Plus, you can always keep things simple with naturally plant-based summer staples, like corn, pasta salad and fresh fruit. Featuring a tasty vinaigrette that sets this side apart, enjoy classic grilled veggies with the Grilled Vegetable Medley – it takes full advantage of the freshest flavors of grilling season. And if you’d like to get a little more complex with flavor (while staying simple with prep), these next recipes are right for you. Ginger fans can get their fix with Grilled Napa Cabbage with Ginger Tahini Dressing or Grilled Sesame Ginger Watermelon Steak Salad (that’s right, get some sear marks on that melon).
