The Ultimate Vegan Labor Day BBQ Menu

It's almost Labor Day weekend (hello, long weekend)! For many people, Labor Day signifies the unofficial end of summer (boo) and the beginning of fall (yay!). Labor Day is also the perfect time to open up your backyard or apartment balcony to entertain friends, family, and all your favorite people with an epic vegan cookout. What's an epic cookout without grilling some plant-based burgers, hot dogs, chicken wings, corn on the cob, veggie skewers, zucchini, tempeh, and so much more! Clearly, we love a good excuse to round up vegan recipes for a barbecue. Ha.

We know there are many different types of people with unique food preferences who come to a cookout and we want to satisfy all palates. We pulled together a BBQ grilling menu with vegan foods that are sure to satisfy both vegans and omnivores!

Beyond Meat Beyond Burger

The Beyond Burger from Beyond Meat, check it out here

What's a cookout without a plant-based burger that looks, cooks, and satisfies like real Meat? #wedontwanttoknow. Not only does it taste good, but it's also gluten-free, soy-free, and non-GMO.

Pretzilla Burger Buns

Burger Buns from Pretzilla, check it out here.

The perfect burger needs the perfect bun to go along with it! Pretzilla buns are soft and pillowy with a chewy texture that makes for a satisfying bite! It complements the burger, it doesn't overpower it. They're great toasted and are vegan, kosher, non-GMO, and nut-free.

Follow Your Heart American Style Slices

American Style Slices from Follow Your Heart, check it out here.

The greatest debate: do you or do you not add dairy-free cheese to a plant-based burger? You already know our answer (C' mon! It's a classic). Follow Your Heart has a great balance of mild flavor and creamy texture for the perfect melt *BRB DROOLING* (Oh yeah, they're also gluten-free and soy-free).

Farmhouse Culture Garlic Dill Pickle Kraut

Garlic Dill Pickle Kraut from Farmhouse Culture, check it out here.

We promise this crunchy kraut will hit your burgers differently. It's sweet, it's tangy, and it's savory - a total must-have for any burger. Unlike most pickles, it’s brimming with live cultures that are good for your gut! Plus, it's gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free, non-GMO. It's great as a side dish, too!

The Condiments

Dijion Mustard from Sir Kensington's, check it out here.
Ketchup from Sir Kensington's, check it out here.
Chipotle Fabanaise from Sir Kensington's, check it out here.

And now, for the thing to top off your burger: CONDIMENTS. We love Sir Kensington's because they're gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free, and non-GMO. Get the Dijon Mustard for a rich, acidic flavor, Ketchup for something subtly spicy, and Chipotle Fabanaise for something smokey and creamy.

We know planning a BBQ can be stressful so we did the work for you and pulled everything into a BBQ kit that you can get here. Want to throw a full day bash? Shop our full-day "No Labor" Labor Day kit, here and the Deluxe "No Labor" Labor Day kit here. Don't forget to top off your barbecue with something delicious too!
