Memorial Day is coming up, and taking a cue from the trend for more vegetarian focused foods, I was inspired to find some of our best vegetarian, yet barbecue appropriate recipes perfect for this national day of remembrance.  You’ll notice that every recipe carries the barbecue theme by roasting or grilling some aspect of the dish, providing those classic summer flavors with no need to serve meat.

Mexican street corn is a perfect vegetarian grilled dish, but since it is usually made with cheese we developed a way to keep it dairy free.  Use vegan mayo to keep it vegan.

For dessert, why not take advantage of in-season fruit by throwing it on the grill and topping it with your favorite ice cream.  Choose your preferred fruit based on what's available where you live, but a few ideas include...
