In this Memorial Day Recipe Roundup, I’ve selected 50 of my absolute favorite and most popular vegan and gluten-free recipes that are perfect for your holiday weekend cookout menus.  This delicious roundup includes breakfast, appetizers, sides, salads, entrees, sauces/condiments, desserts and beverages.  I hope this provides you with lots of inspiration for your cookout this Memorial Day weekend (and really all summer long)!  

Memorial Day Weekend Cookout Recipe Roundup Vegan and Gluten-Free

Memorial Day weekend is so close I can taste it!  Or, at least dream about the food I want to eat all holiday weekend long.  Even in our new housebound lives, MDW marks the unofficial start of summer and the official start of let’s grill and cookout all the time, friends!  I literally cannot wait!  I’m ready to move from the oven to the grill and re-familiarize myself with late-spring, early-summer produce.  Who’s with me?

All of these recipes are vegan, dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free, gluten-free, refined sugar-free and peanut-free.  Many are also nut-free.  If you make any of these recipes, please snap a pic and tag #eatingbyelaine and @eatingbyelaine on InstagramTwitter or Facebook so I can see your creations.

Enjoy, and I can’t wait to see what you all make!
