Recipe: Vegan Coronation Coleslaw

Vegan Coronation Coleslaw

Please accept my apologies for the weather this coming weekend.  You see, whenever I get around to posting a BBQ-friendly recipe in anticipation of a hot, sunny weekend you can pretty much guarantee the weather will turn foul and everyone will be hunkering down inside with their slow-cooker stews and hot chocolate rather than sunning themselves around the barbie.

But never mind – this spiced vegan Coronation Coleslaw is good enough to tuck into whatever the weather, and will bring some warming Indian flavours to an indoor picnic or lunch party if rain stops play outside.

Recipe: The Ultimate Vegan Potato Salad

The Ultimate Vegan Potato Salad

BBQ and picnic season has arrived at last, and with my husband (who is a teacher) having broken up for the summer this week, we’ve certainly got the holiday happies around here at the moment.

For me, one of the must-have dishes in any BBQ spread is a really good, creamy potato salad, (usually alongside a crisp green salad with sharp vinaigrette, then lots of marinated, grilled veggies on the BBQ and maybe some good quality vegan sausages in soft, white rolls).

Olive BBQ Flatbreads with Artichokes

This is a sponsored post

The never-ending debate is re-surfacing again for the summer…. what on earth do vegetarians & vegans want to eat at BBQs?  Fake sausages just dry out and turn to cardboard, and I’m getting a bit bored of halloumi.

So, here’s an idea which is deceptively easy and a sure-fire crowd pleaser at any BBQ… garlicky, olive-y flatbreads cooked quickly over the coals, topped with marinated artichokes and cherry tomatoes.  Totally delicious, and great served with hummus, baba ganoush or other middle-eastern style bits and pieces.

Recipes for the BBQ: Marmite & Mozzarella Flatbreads and Reggae Reggae Potato Skewers

You will either love or hate these little Marmite & Mozzarella Flatbreads, but if you’re a marmite lover do give them a try – they are totally more-ish and you won’t be able to stop at one!  They absolutely must be eaten straight away whilst the cheese is still oozing.

If its not BBQ season you can still make these – a dry frying pan works just as well as the BBQ.  Continue reading “Recipes for the BBQ: Marmite & Mozzarella Flatbreads and Reggae Reggae Potato Skewers”
