Veggie Options for a Balmy Backyard Barbeque

Here in Minnesota, we’re having unprecedented summer weather: not so hot and not so humid. Perfect for a backyard barbeque! And how convenient that Compassionate Action for Animals is hosting a barbeque potluck on Friday, August 22nd at the home of Suzy Sorensen, 1099 Lombard Ave in St. Paul from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

If the thought of a barbeque conjures an unappetizing image of charred animal flesh (aka hot dogs and hamburgers), we’ve got good news for you. At our potluck, we’re taking animals off the menu and replacing them with a variety of colorful, flavorful plant-based options. Bring on the Tofurky!

Bring a vegan dish, either something to throw on the grill or perhaps a side dish or dessert. You can grab something ready-made from the store or you can make your own. Looking for ideas? We’ve got you covered. How about one of these fabulous options:

Lentil Burgers

Homemade Vegan Hot Dogs

Lime Grilled Avocados

Grain-Free Mixed Berry Crisp

Herb Pesto Pasta Salad

Bourbon Maple Baked Beans

BBQ Portobello Sliders

Take a moment to RSVP to our Facebook event and share with bring your friends. This potluck is a great way to show your omnivore friends that a vegan barbeque can rock with good food and friendly company.
