Delish 4th of July BBQ veggie style
I am making this veggie BBQ for the 4th with grilled Sunshine Burgers and grilled onion rings, tropical coleslaw, and corn on the cob(not shown in photo), and red white and blue fruit parfaits. Yum!
Sunshine Burgers are easy to grill for the 4th of July. I used the BBQ Sunshine Burgers and put them on the grill with some onion rings. I flipped the burgers over and then put some BBQ sauce on them and then topped them with some veggie cheese. While the cheese was melting I toasted the buns. I put them together on plates adding some lettuce and sprouts and pickles.
Serve with some tropical coleslaw made ahead of time:
Shred up some organic carrots and cabbage or buy some already shredded. Chop up some organic celery. Drain a can of pineapple chunks and chop them up or chop up some fresh pineapple. If you buy pre-cut fresh pineapple make sure the color is a dark yellow instead of whitish light yellow. The darker yellow is riper. Stir everything in a bowl with some vegenaise. NOTE: If you make this a head of time...do not add the vegenaise or the salt and pepper till its time to serve it because it makes liquid come out the longer it sits. The fruit makes the coleslaw special. If you have a tropical fruit blend that you buy that you like better use that.
Make some corn on the cob as a side and put out some chips. For the finale...dessert!
I love fancy parfait glasses and I used them to make dessert. I made some vegan
strawberry jello and layered it with fresh strawberries and blueberries and topped
it with a scoop of vegan vanilla ice cream. Red, white, and blue....Happy 4th to all!!!!!
