Vegan Burgers and Side Dishes for July 4th!

 

 

Hosting a fun, delicious, and healthy 4th of July meal is made easy with these VEGAN BURGERS and SIDE DISHES  from a few of my fabulous friends!

 

 

An outdoor celebration is not complete without a tasty vegan burger! Please scroll down this page for 12 awesome burger choices to perk up your party menus, all summer long! First up, Zsu Dever (author of Aquafaba: Sweet and Savory Vegan Recipes Made Egg-Free with the Magic of Bean Water), shares her  Fajita Burger, Pizza Burger, and Premium Patty Melt recipes. Wow. From Dianne Wenz, (author of What’s for Lunch?), we have Chipotle Lentil Burgers and Grilled Portobello-Peach Sandwiches. Yum. Annie Oliverio (author of Crave Eat Heal: Plant-based, Whole Food Recipes To Satisfy Every Appetite), offers us her Black Bean, Corn, and Walnut-Burgers, while Sharon Palmer (The Plant-Powered Dietitian, author of Plant-Powered for Life), shared her recipe for Farro and White Bean Veggie Burgers. So delish. For kids and grownups alike, Nava Atlas (author of Plant Power, Transform Your Kitchen, Plate, and Life with More than 150 Fresh and Flavorful Vegan Recipes), has a wonderful Pinto Bean and Quinoa Sloppy Joes recipe, and I have added my Hungry Guy Burger, Walnut-Mushroom Burger, Chickpea Burgers, and Not-So-Crabby Cakes to this comprehensive list of vegan burger favorites! All so very, very good.

 

 

On the side, Julieanna Hever (author of The Vegiterranean Diet: The New and Improved Mediterranean Eating Plan--with Deliciously Satisfying Vegan Recipes for Optimal Health), shares her Quinoa and Chickpea Tabbouleh Salad, White Bean and Rosemary Dip, and Cheesy Smoky Butternut Squash Pasta. Zel Allen (author of Vegan for the Holidays), offers Grilled Veggie Kebabs, and Annie’s Brussles Sprouts Salad both look enticing. My Kale and Tomato Salad, and Confetti Fries round out this lively list of side dishes. Delightful.

 

 

For dessert, Zel’s incredible Stars and Stripes American Pie will surely please, and my Strawberry Mountain Pie adds a wow factor to any warm weather meal. Deeee-lish. For a sweet snack anytime, Choco-Peanut Butter Cups add pizzaz.

 

So, please scroll down for photos and links to all of these delicious recipes, and have a festive, happy, and safe July 4th weekend!
