This week’s delicious round up is from Natalie who blogs at The Tofu Diaries.

Is it safe yet to say that barbecue season is finally with us? I’m not so sure, but one thing it is safe to say is that barbecues are not only the domain of meat-eaters. We vegetarians and vegans certainly know how to do a barbecue in style.

The sides and the salads are easy of course, but what about the mains? Thanks to the ingenuity of so many vegan bloggers out there, you can do far better than a shop-bought veggie burger or, worse, a homemade one that falls to pieces on the grill. Here is my pick of ten sizzling vegan recipes that would go down a treat cooked on the barbecue:

  • Fajitas are transformed in Veghotpot’s BBQ Veggie Fajitas into barbecue-ready skewers – serve as they are or in wraps with guacamole.
  • Another skewered option is these Grilled Seitan Kebabs with a dreamy-sounding Creole Coconut Sauce by The Grumpy Sailor.
  • Looking to fool your carnivorous friends? Try a BBQ Beetroot Seitan Steak from Allotment2Kitchen for a “meaty” option.
  • No barbecue would be complete without burgers and these Squash & Lentil Burgers made by Wrapped in Newspaper are just the ticket.
  • Deena Kakaya’s Pea, Spinach & Brown Rice Patties make for a great lighter alternative to veggie burgers.
  • You may have spotted that whole roasted cauliflowers have become rather popular, but why not take it to the barbecue? This Whole Roasted Cauliflower from The Whole Ingredient would lend itself perfectly to being chargrilled.
  • It’s not only vegetables that work a treat on the barbecue; fruit works surprisingly well and something like pineapple caramelises to almost taste like a new ingredient. Try it with tofu on these Jerk Tofu & Pineapple Skewers from Coconut and Berries.
  • Speaking of tofu, how about a classic serving of Marinated and Grilled Tofu served up with hummus and pita bread from Planet Veggie?
  • These Oil-Free Crispy Potatoes from Wallflower Girl are a classy alternative to a jacket potato and cooking them in foil in the coals would coax out a whole extra layer of flavour.
  • Finally, The Petite Cook’s Portobello Mushrooms can be grilled up and then filled with the pumpkin and caramelised walnuts. Yum!

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at bloggers@fleaenterprises.com with any questions or comments.

Thank you!
