Memorial Day Menu Planning

It’s that time of year again. Flowers are blooming, temperatures are rising and we are closing in on Memorial Day weekend. Memorial Day is a special time to celebrate our veterans and those who serve, and spend quality time with friends and family over good food. Plus, it’s the unofficial kick-off to the summer season!

Last year, we prepared you for the festivities with some tips for keeping your Memorial Day Barbecue safe for those with food allergies. This year, in the spirit of giving you permission to eat freely, we wanted to bring you all a delectable free-from menu that every guest at your party can enjoy. Allergy-friendly? Check. Vegan? Check. Made with real ingredients? CHECK! There’s something for everyone with this fun and festive spread:

Avocado Lime Dip – This refreshing avocado dip is gluten-free, vegan and oh so simple to make! Add some cilantro & lime zest and pair with our Thai Chili Lime Plentils or fresh veggies for a delicious appetizer!

Crackers – The perfect crunchy accompaniment to your favorite dairy-free dip!

Grilled Veggie Flatbreads – These vegan flatbreads are made with our gluten-free Pizza Crust Mix and a heap of your favorite veggies for a better-for-you twist on a classic favorite.

Mac & Cheese – Mac & Cheese that’s gluten- AND dairy-free? Yes, it does exist…and it’s delicious! Get a mouthful of this amazing recipe topped with our Garlic & Parmesan Plentils!

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp – A perfect blend of two seasonal fruits, baked into a scrumptious gluten-free treat.

Raspberry Crumble Bars – Fruit is in season, and makes for the perfect dessert option!  Add a little tang to your sweet treat with raspberries…YUM!
