Whether you are headed to the beach this summer or the park or a picnic, these easy 12 Vegan Beach Recipes are perfect to pack for the trip! They are all great eaten at room temperature.
I love the summer! The warmth, wearing tank tops, flip flops and enjoying the outside activities more. A reader sent in a request for recipes that could be taken to a picnic, lake, the park or the beach! It was a great idea, so I came up with this collection that I thought were the best recipes. They are all really easy to make and are perfect eaten at room temperature or cold, so no heating up required! They can all be made a day in advance and are all also oil-free!
CAESAR SMASHED CHICKPEA SANDWICH
SMOKY JALAPENO BLACK BEAN DIP
This is one of those dips that does not need to be warm to be delicious. In fact, it is best cold or at room temperature.
CHEESE AND CRACKERS
This Smoky Baked Cashew Cheese holds up exceptionally well, as it is baked and firm, so it slices beautifully and does not melt. It makes for the perfect grab snack.
BARBECUE POTATO SALAD
Easily one of my favorite recipes, because, hello barbecue sauce. So delicious and easy to make and full of flavor and textures.
GARLIC KALE SALAD WITH ALMOND BUTTER DRESSING
This salad is filling and packed with protein and healthy fats, so it is great to take and keep you full.
SOUTHWEST LIME CORN SALAD
A reader favorite, so much, that it earned a spot in my Cookbook, this dish is delicious both warm and chilled.
THE PERFECT PASTA SALAD
Now, this recipe is not on my blog, but it is in my Cookbook. So, if you have my book, I’d highly suggest that recipe to take to the beach, lake or a picnic. It is truly my favorite pasta salad of all time. The flavors are incredible and it’s been a huge hit with those who’ve bought the book!
Chips and salsa are always good no matter the occasion!
FRUIT SALAD KABOBS WITH CHOCOLATE SUNFLOWER DIP
I actually offer 2 different sunflower dips here and both are delicious but the chocolate one is absolutely amazing. Both are nut-free, as they are made with sunflower seeds. To prevent browning of the bananas, I would probably weight to assemble the skewers upon arrival and slice the bananas then.
NUT-FREE CHOCOLATE CHIP GRANOLA BARS
NO-BAKE CINNAMON ROLL BARS
These are so easy to make and require no baking! They are so delicious on their own, so I would even skip the icing, to keep it mess-free.
VEGAN LEMON COOKIES
I hope you all enjoy this collection of vegan beach recipes and find them useful this summer!
