Canada Day is almost here! We love Canada Day because it signals a long weekend that we can spend with people we love, eating delicious food. Canada Day also happens to fall right in the middle of summer, which is one of the best times for food. There are a lot of delicious vegetables and fruit that are in season which means fresh food all day, every day.
Canada Day is all about BBQing and have fun, that’s why we rounded up our ten favourite summer party recipes that will allow you to have a delicious Canada Day. If you’re not Canadian, these recipes are equally amazing for any summer BBQ or potluck you are planning.
We hope you enjoy our list of top ten Canada Day recipes. Happy cooking!
Happy Birthday Canada!
Looking for that perfect meaty burger without the meat? This delicious vegan burger patty is the perfect addition to your summer barbecue and the answer to those frozen dry vegan patties you have suffered with for too long.
With all the fresh vegetables and fruit that are in season right now, how could we not make a delicious vegetable packed salad? The salad is the perfect combination of sweet and spicy and can even be a delicious topping on a sausage or hot dog.
Summer is hot, like really hot. That means you need something delicious to cool you down. These popsicles combine two of our favourite things; watermelon and mojitos.
Is it even a summer backyard party without a pasta salad? The salad is perfectly fresh and a great addition to any plate. With the delicious fresh flavours from the kale, sun-dried tomatoes, and vegan cheese this salad is a must-have.
Seriously this burger blew us away when we made it. It’s perfectly juicy and crispy at the same time. You will have everyone begging for the recipe once they take a bite.
One of our favourite summer treats. These loaded corn on the cobs are the perfect way to take your backyard barbecue up a notch. Make these for everyone or have a make-your-own corn on the cob station.
You can have s’mores without the flame. If you live in a city like Kat does, you can’t really have a big campfire, but obviously it’s not summer without s’mores. These s’mores bars are your perfect solution. Delicious and definitely not nutritious, but who cares, it’s summer.
Homemade vegan sausages are all the rage right now. Unfortunately the Beyond Meat sausages aren’t available in Canada, but we have the next best thing. Homemade Vegan Beer Sausages. That’s right beer in a sausage. You’re welcome.
When in doubt, make kebabs. Kebabs are a perfect for a potluck because it’s easy to make a large amount and prep ahead, plus they are perfect for everyone. Even those people who claim they don’t like vegan food, will get behind these mushroom kebabs.
You read that right. Vegan. Big Mac. Potato. Salad. The perfect side that will have everyone asking for more.
