5 Plant-Based Grilling Recipes for Memorial Day

Next weekend on Memorial Day, many of us will honor and remember those who have served and given their lives in the armed forces. We'll gather in backyards across the country in remembrance, and for many of us, we'll officially kick off summer with friends and family at this season's first cookout.

If this is your first summer eating plant-based, you may be racking your brain to figure out how you can partake in the grilling festivities. But we've got good news: there are a TON of really delicious ways to fire up the grill with veggies. We've gathered five of our favorite plant-based grilling recipes from around the web.

 

(Note: some of these recipes include oil but they can absolutely be made without oil. We promise your veggies won't stick - and we think they taste better without it!)

 

The Spruce Grilled Eggplant Recipe

 

1. Perfect Grilled Eggplant from The Spruce

If you’re grilling sans meat, eggplant is your new best friend. It's great on its own, served over whole grains, or even as a stand-in for burgers. Plus, Molly Watson from The Spruce offers way to embellish this specific recipe — variety is the spice of life, after all. 

 

Lemon Zucchini The Vegan8

 

2. Lemon Italian Herbed Grilled Zucchini from The Vegan8 

Summer would not be complete without one of its finest harvests: the zucchini. A perfect grilling veggie, this lemon herbed zucchini recipe is as tasty as it is pretty. 

 

Creamy Cilantro Lime Corn from It Doesn't Taste Like Chicken

 

3. Creamy Cilantro Lime Corn on the Cob from It Doesn’t Taste like Chicken 

Good news for Mexican street corn fans: you don’t actually need mayo or cheese to make a creamy, delicious sauce to drizzle on your grilled corn. This recipe will have your omnivore friends asking for seconds, too.  

 

Vegan Portobello Steaks

4. Vegan Portobello Steaks from Ceara's Kitchen

Mushrooms aren't only a good source of dietary fiber, protein, and vitamin C - they're also a delicious and super juicy grillable. 

 

 

5. Veggie Burger made from MamaSezz Veggie Loaf

Don't feel like doing any prep over the holiday weekend? We don't blame you. Grab some MamaSezz veggie loaf from your fridge, form into patties, and toss on the grill. Serve with a whole grain bun.
