Rach, here again, getting excited about Summer & sharing some BBQ recipes with you.
Summer in Australia is almost upon us! The season to be merry and festive. Beach days, warm nights and coconut-based ice cream. Weekends will soon be consisting of BBQ’s, gatherings and all things outdoor, social and food-related.
To kick off Summer in Australia I wanted to share some great recipe ideas you can wow (yes wow, those who aren’t familiar with vegan foods are often surprised) your guests with or take along to a party (vegans can party too)! Even if you’re told not to bring a thing, bring a vegan meal so you can share how good vegan tastes. Never miss an opportunity to showcase some vegan food and prove it’s more than hummus & carrots.
Firstly, if you are invited to a BBQ and the host stipulates to not bring anything, always do. A plant-based version of the peoples favourite, like, sausages and hamburgers will be a hit.
With all of the meat alternatives hitting the shelves and plant-based mince, you can make your own hamburgers or rissoles. If you haven’t already, try using ‘Funky Fields’ minced meat or if you can’t be bothered making anything there are plenty of packaged options sold at your main supermarket chains.
See our list of meat options that can be found at your local supermarket.
We have had some amazing recipe creators within the vegan community contribute recipes to LGV so here are some ideas I have collated to accompany your BBQ meat or to bring along to a lunch or dinner.
Pasta salad– because you can never go wrong with pasta salad.
How about an impressive sweet potato, cranberry & brown rice salad. The recipe provided is for one serve but ramp up the ingredients and you’ll have everyone around it!
Who doesn’t love peanut butter? Who doesn’t love noodles? Combined? Dream team!
What are you waiting for?! Go & check out this Peanut Butter Noodle Salad.
Don’t worry, it doesn’t end here. This is just a teaser so go check out our recipe ideas for bbqs and gatherings.

Peace, love & plant-based summers!
