It’s common PGEW knowledge that I’m an omnivore and a very happy one at that. I’m just as content indulging in a steaming bowl of mushroom & potato soup as I am with a tender, juicy steak. And while a small steak will probably make it onto my tiny grill this Memorial Day weekend, I’m also going to enjoy some hearty quinoa salads and plenty of fresh veggies from the farmer’s market.
That got me thinking: with all the fantastic menu ideas floating around the web right now, how is it that almost all of them are focusing on meat? Have we forgotten the exquisite flavor of fresh zucchini hot off the grill and drizzled with a bit of olive oil? What about all of the incredible salads and sides that feature the best of this season’s produce?
So for my non-meat-eating friends and those who are just looking for something different to bring to the table this holiday weekend, here are some great meatless and/or vegetarian options that would be great for cookouts, potlucks, or whatever get-togethers you may be attending. And don’t worry, I didn’t forget dessert this time! Scroll down to the end to find all the sweet treats you could possibly want.
