The Vegan Summer Barbecue Experience

Even though I love a good steak, unfortunately steak doesn’t much like me.  I have been eating Vegan more and more.  I just really enjoy a really well made Vegan meal.  In the past, like vegetarian food, I love it but always thought that there was just so much preparation involved that I wouldn’t bother to make it – I’d rather eat it at a restaurant where I don’t have to do all the pre-soaking and cooking.  But now there are so many vegan choices available at the Supermarket that eating Vegan is easier than ever.

Now once you try my Vegan Cheeseburgers, you won’t go back to the real thing – that I promise!  Even Vegan Cheese is delicious!

Here is the Menu:

The Vegan Summer Barbecue Experience


Vegan Cheese Ball with Crackers

  • 1.5 cups raw cashews
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley

Soak the raw cashews in hot water for about 45 minutes.  Drain and rinse well.  Place them in a food processor together with lemon juice

Taste the mixture and add salt and pepper to taste.

Roll the mixture into a ball and refrigerate for 30 minutes to firm it up.  Then roll in the seeds and serve with crackers.
