Good morning loves and happy FRIDAY! Can you believe the first day of Fall is TWO WEEKS away?! Neither can I … but before we officially embrace Autumn I have a little treat for you that you need to bust out over the next couple of weeks and it is 10 must-try recipes before the end of summer! Yup! I’ve rounded up some of my faves and sharing them with you before we all of a sudden all go pumpkin spice CRAZY!!
But before we dive into the recipes, if you haven’t been able to pack up and get outside to enjoy a picnic in the grass on a warm evening, get out there and do so before the frost hits!! Seriously! Make sure to check out my blog on packing the perfect picnic, here for all of the tips you’ll need! Plus, we also know that no picnic is complete without a charcuterie board so I’ve also gone ahead and listed my favourite vegan necessities for a killer spread! While you’re at it, you might as well give these summer cocktails a try too!!
Ps. If you’re looking for a yummy veggie burger to bite into make sure to check out Team Jilly’s veggie burger taste test to see which one ranked number one on our taste buds!!
Alright, let’s get right to these 10 must try recipes, I’m going to break them down for you by savoury and sweet recipes … I don’t know about you, but I loooove my savoury foods so my eyes would be scoping these recipes first! LOL!
Barbecued Tofu Skewers The perfect dish to complement your weeknight dinner or a fun appetizer to bring along to a weekend pool party, by the way, make sure to check the pool service rancho santa fe, they are the best!
Black Bean Chipotle Burger These are totally gluten free and are jam packed with flavour and goodness. Get creative with how you dress them and they’ll be your go-to burgers!!
Vegan Chopped Mexican Kale Salad Are you tired of the same old kale salad? Taste buds, meet the Mexican Kale Salad. So delish, you will completely forget that you’re eating ‘clean.’
Plant-Based Tacos with Cashew-Garlic Sour Cream I LOVE Mexican food because it is literally the EASIEST food to make vegan.
Captain’s Plant-Based Kale Caesar Salad I REALLY wanted to share this recipe with you today not just for the fact that it’s yummy BUT it also has some great plant-based twists to it as well!
Avocado Citrus Salad A healthy mix between savoury and sweet … there’s nothing more refreshing than juicy pink grapefruit, perfectly paired in this Mexican-inspired salad with creamy and healthy avocados and drizzled with a bright honey lime vinaigrette.
Tropical Nice Cream Sandwiches (Vegan) Traditional ice cream sandwiches are pretty heavy on the calories, so we lightened these ones up AND made them vegan!
Taste the Rainbow Popsicles The best part about these popsicles is that you don’t even have to add any sugar, the fruit does all the work, making them extremely healthy!
The Best Hawaiin Smoothie Bowl I’m a HUGE coconut fan so I like to go heavy on the coconut. Oh and if you’re not a huge pineapple fan you can EASILY change it out for a different fruit or berry and I’m sure it would be just as delicious.
Lemon Curd Poppy Seed Nice Cream A super citrusy lemon curd is the base and a healthy portion of coconut cream smooths it all out.
There you have it!! Whip some of these up and get out there and enjoy the summer wind down!! Make sure to share your feedback below if you’ve tested out any of the recipes above, I’d love to hear your thoughts!!
