Ultimate Vegan Labor Day Recipe Roundup

Festive, bright, and ready to be enjoyed outside…this Vegan Labor Day Recipe Roundup has every dish you need for a successful holiday! End summer with appetizers, drinks, grilled dishes, and desserts sure to delight.

Vegan Labor Day Recipe Roundup

Labor Day is the first Monday in September, a holiday created to celebrate social and economic achievements of American workers. In addition, it’s become the unofficial signifier of the end of summertime as well. For this reason, a lot of people organize barbecues, pool days, and time in the sunshine! It’s a perfect last hurrah before we settle into fall and Back to School routines. This Vegan Labor Day Recipe Roundup puts all the dishes you need in one place! You’ll find:

  • Appetizers + Sides (Potato and Pasta Salads, and Veggie Salads)
  • Cooking Out: Recipes for the Grill
  • Drinks
  • Treats and Frozen Desserts
  • Red, White, and Blue Recipes (so festive!)

Appetizers

I think the quickest way to my heart just might be a fresh batch of homemade salsa or hummus with chips! In addition, I’ve also got fruit dip, onion dip, and even a watermelon pizza. I love the variety! Above all, appetizers keep everyone snacking and happy while the grill heats up!

Sides: Potato and Pasta Salads

Potato and pasta salads are a must-have at any summertime barbecue or potluck. I love dishes like this because they’re a delicious side, but they’re filling enough to save leftovers for lunch the next day! In other words, you might want to make a double batch of these. Just saying!

More Sides: Veggie Salads

When it comes to veggie salads it’s all about balance! I’ve cracked the code to a salad that keeps people coming back for seconds. First, a balance of sweet and savory flavors. Second, a little crunch. Finally, a great homemade dressing! Each one of these salads checks those boxes, which makes them instant winners.

Cooking Out: Vegan Labor Day Recipe Roundup for the Grill

You don’t have to eat meat to enjoy a fabulous grilled meal! In fact, I fire up the barbecue just as much (if not more!) than my carnivorous friends. Veggies, sweet potato fries, and burgers all taste just a bit better when they’re cooked outside, so I had to have a grilling section in the Vegan Labor Day Recipe Roundup.

Drinks: Refreshers, Cocktails and Mocktails!

Cheers! Having an ice-cold drink in hand on a hot day is one of life’s simple pleasures. I used fresh fruits and natural sweeteners to make drinks that wow every time. Most importantly, I make mocktail versions for the kids! Everyone’s happy!

Frozen Desserts

Pool days are 10x better when there’s a frosty, frozen treat waiting. Everyone gets stars in their eyes when you start talking about popsicles or snow cones. These desserts are so yummy you won’t have to worry about them melting because they’ll be devoured before that happens!

Red White & Blue

It’s an American holiday, so I had to have a section of patriotic recipes in this Vegan Labor Day Recipe Roundup! Make sure to have a red, white, and blue dish on the table for a perfect picnic.
