Have you totally caught summer fever (is that a thing?)? Me too. I just want to wear dresses and wedge sandals and drink smoothies and eat salads and soak up as much sun as I can while doing so.
If you've caught summer fever too and you're looking for some vegan summer recipes to help you do this season right, then you've come to the right place. Today I'm sharing some of our current favorites! I'm also giving away 5 of my vegan cookbooks (I don't have room for them all!) so scroll all the way down to enter.
VEGAN SUMMER RECIPES
Because eating something fresh and cool and fruity first thing in the morning (or basically any other time of the day) is pretty much the best way to fuel yourself before a day of lounging poolside or heading to the beach.
Whether you've got friends or family visiting from out of town and you need to make a big brunch or you just need a break from all of the smoothies, these recipes will fit the bill.
Light & Filling Salads
Sometimes nothing but a big-ass salad will due when the temperatures near (or even excede) triple digits.
When you don't feel like spending a lot of time in the kitchen (probably because you're too exhausted from the day of hammock napping), recipes that call for little or no cooking are ideal.
It's the time of year to get together with friends whether it's just to have a couple beers and a few laughs or if it's a full-fledged BBQ extravaganza, you need some recipes that will wow the crowds.
Does this even need explaining? It's hot and you need to satisfy your sweet tooth. Period.
And now for the GIVEAWAY... Chris and I have been doing some spring cleaning and after going through my cookbook collection, I have to get rid of some to make room for ones I use more regularly. These books were either gifted to me or given to me to review and though I'd like to keep them, I just don't have the space for them. My loss is your gain. All of these books are all perfectly new or very gently used. The giveaway is open to US residents only and will run until 11:59 pm PST on June 16th, 2014. Please use the box below to enter.
