These Summer Vegan Recipes are absolutely worth trying at least once. I have a feeling you would want to try them over and over again.
Not only can you modify the recipes to suit your palate, you can also substitute ingredients to accommodate what you have.
I have been looking for healthy and great tasting meat-free recipes to try out this summer and these are my top 11 Summer Vegan Recipes.
#1 Summer Vegan Bibimbap
I was at a friend’s house last week and was served something very similar to this Summer Vegan Bibimbap.
They prepared theirs with chips (or fries if you’re American) instead of rice and added a lot of broccoli (with some ingredient tweaks here and there). It tasted absolutely delicious.
This version by Melissa from The stingy Vegan, is similarly packed with a generous dose of colours, flavours and healthy goodness that I honestly believe anyone would enjoy.
#2 Vegan Peanut Butter Banana Pudding
This Peanut Butter Banana Pudding recipe from Dana at Minimalist Baker recipe should come with a warning attached because you could seriously get hooked. If you’re a huge peanut butter and banana fan, you’ll more than likely be stuffing your face with this delicious goodness all summer long.
#3 Southwest Couscous Salad
Nothing says Vegan Summer Recipe better than a good healthy bowl of salad. Even better when it’s a healthy and delicious bowl of salad like this Southwest Couscous Salad by Julia from Savory Tooth. It’s rather easy to make and only requires two steps.
#4 Blueberry Muffins
Muffins are one of my favorite things on earth but I tend to have a tiny sense of guilt after eating “regular” muffins because I go all out.
This guilt-free Blueberry Muffin Recipe from Kate at The Veg Space is somewhat of a lifeline for anyone such as myself, who likes to indulge in more than a healthy level sometimes.
#5 Vegan Zucchini Pasta Alfredo
I find this Zucchini Pasta Alfredo dish by Mary Ellen at VNutrition and Wellness to be somewhat of a conundrum.
On one hand, is so gorgeous and very clean looking that you don’t want to ruin it by eating it. On the other hand, it’s so fresh and inviting that you can’t wait to tuck in.
#6 Black Bean and Lime Rice
Now I don’t know about you, but I’ve never seen rice and beans look so vibrant and alive as much as they do in this Black Bean and Lime Rice recipe from Marlena at Where You Get Your Protein.
The recipe is also full of flavor and easy to make. You can easily tweak it to add even more ingredients and color to suit your needs.
#7 Tacos With Cilantro Lime Sauce
These Tacos with Pinto Beans and Cilantro Lime Sauce is another top recipe from Marlena at Where You Get Your Protein. The recipe can be ready in just 20 minutes. It’s super delicious and oil free.
#8 Orange Cauliflower
I quite like vegetable florets mainly because of the extra bulk and crunch they add to a dish. A little cauliflower in a meal goes a long way to making you feeling satisfied for longer.
They also tend to retain the flavors of other ingredients they are cooked with. Just like this Orange Cauliflower Recipe from Jenn at Veggie Inspired that has been roasted then smothered in a sticky sweet fresh orange sauce. Yum!
#9 Pesto Zucchini Spaghetti
Zucchini is another vegetable that can hold flavor really well and this Pesto Zucchini Spaghetti Recipe from Anjali at Vegetarian Gastronomy recipe offers just the right amount of flavor.
#10 Baked Black Bean & Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers
This Black Bean & Sweet Potato Veggie Burger Recipe from Laura at Joy Food Sunshine in my opinion is the ultimate vegan burger recipe. Besides being vegan, it’s also gluten-free and freezer-friendly, jam-packed with protein, fiber and nutritious vegetables.
What more can you really ask for in a burger?
#11 Vegan Meatballs
This Moroccan Inspired Meatballs Recipe from Ania at Lazy Cat Kitchen is a filling main dish that you can enjoy multiple times over. What I like about this recipe is the versatility it allows. You can spice it up the way you want and serve it with any dish you want.
