Vegans Be Welcome!

Ease your Vegan BBQ panic and make life easier for you, the host and other guests at all the casual backyard barbeques you’ll be invited to this summer.

Top tips to enjoy BBQ Season as a gluten-free Vegan:

Talk to your host!

Contact your host and ask if it’s better to bring an appetizer, a main dish, or a dessert. If it’s 1 or all 3, we’ve got you covered!!

Keep it Simple and Familiar.

Simple: Meaning: Make it easy on the host! They have enough to contend with on the day of the party; so… if your dish needs a spoon, bring a spoon. If something needs tongs, bring them.

Familiar: So there’s no alienation. You don’t want it to become a “thing”, so take food that people will recognize like maybe a 7-layer dip, Know Meat burger wraps, even banana bread. These are foods that most everyone has seen and eaten before. And it helps if you prepare your food ahead of time and keep it self-contained so you won’t be getting the vegan-sweats over where “my” food is being grilled or what part of the table “my” stuff can go.
It can be inconvenient for a host of a BBQ to have to deal with cross contamination, but no more than with chicken, beef or pork so having your vegan items prepared in advance can go a long way to relieving the stress if cross contamination is an issue, like it is for us!

Be inclusive.

Think of food as a universal language. What are you saying when you keep things separate as opposed to simply putting a familiar dish on the table like everyone else. All foods are a way of connecting with people…just eat it.

So now what? Where do you go to get this stuff?

Our go-to locally in Calgary for trusted brands and local products for the past 10 years has been Sunnyside Natural Market in Kensington. Patty and her staff are super friendly and knowledgeable and they’ve always been a huge help to us!
If you’re a Vegan somewhere else, trust there are a whole host of natural organic food stores and farmers’ markets throughout the seasons all across this great nation of ours.

Be a gracious Vegan. Leave a gift. 

A great thank you gift for your host is to bring an extra loaf of gluten-free, vegan banana bread to enjoy for breakfast the next day; and as a host, it’s nice to wake up the day after and not have to make anything.

Especially if it’s really a good vegan treat!

How to Cook

Lightly coat the bottom of a pan with oil (coconut or grape seed) Alternatively, use any desired amount of oil, cook when oil gets hot in a pan on medium to high heat for about 5 -7 minutes per side. We find if you crisp them up a little bit it really brings out the flavour.

Cook from frozen.
