Barbecue Dinner Lunch Ovenbaked

Guacamole Burger

Happy #veganuary friends! I remember thinking last year that it seemed nearly impossible to eat a vegan diet for a whole month. I didn’t eat meat, but thought it was too complicated to replace dairy, eggs and fish. But a thought had formed, and I gradually removed all animal products. Since mid February I’ve eaten a fully plantbased diet. And it’s not hard at all. No, on the contrary – it has really awakened my interest in cooking and made me try so many new dishes and products! Are you ready to take the leap yet?

The best way is to start simple. Just replace your ordinary beef burger with one of the many vegan brands available. I like the Swedish brand @anamma_sverige, and there are many other good ones out there. Serve it in a bun with lettuce, pickled red onion and obscene amounts of guacamole, and a side of oven baked sweet potato fries. It doesn’t have to be more complicated than that to eat vegan.

Grilled Greens

It’s all good that there are meat-free burgers, sausages and chick’n for those summer barbecues, so that more people skip the meat. But sometimes the veggies themselves are good enough.

We used slices of eggplant and zucchini, mushrooms, romaine lettuce, tomatoes and new potatoes and carrots (boiled beforehand until almost soft). Toss the veggies onto the grill, serve it with some hummus and sage, and at last sprinkle it with cashew parmesan.

Burger with Peach Salsa

Burgers on the barbecue tonight. I topped mine with cucumber, a peach salsa, vegan mayo and pickled red onion – and the very first leaf of our home grown lettuce!

For the salsa: Finely chop ripe peaches, fresh coriander and mint, and a little bit of red chili. Add the juice from half a lime, a pinch of salt och a pinch of sugar (depending on how sweet the peaches are). Mix well and rest for at least 30 minutes before serving.
