Table of Contents
Finger foods and appetizers are the keys to keeping people happy at any party or gathering. Here is a delicious list of dips, chips, and anything else you could possibly need to get the party started.
For the grill: BBQs and Cookouts
Just because you’re vegan doesn’t mean you can’t join in around the grill. Yes, people will likely make fun of your veggie burgers, seitan ribs, and carrot hot dogs. But, that just means more for you and you are under no obligation to share.
Any of these delicious creations will make even the most ardent meat eater drool. These sandwiches are hearty, filling, and so freaking good!
Summery Side Dishes
If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a million times, I LOVE side dishes! And, I love making a meal out of them. Any one of these dishes would make a perfect side for your Labor Day party or potluck.
Gatherings are so much better when you can polish off a delicious meal with a sweet treat. These desserts are so yummy you’ll have a hard time convincing everyone they’re actually plant-based and healthy.
Dressings and Sauces
Creamy sauces and dressings are perfect for adding flavor to any dish.
