Vegan Fourth of July Staples

Like most American holidays, the Fourth of July is celebrated with lots of food.  You can easily get your grub on while remaining cruelty-free.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.  When life friends hand you lemons fresh herbs from their garden,

make a mojito!

Whether or not swimming is on your agenda, let your potato chips and pretzels make a splash in onion dip. Mix one container of Tofutti sour supreme with 85% of an onion soup mix packet; chill and serve.

Choose your favorite veggie burger.

In VM's house, it's Sunshine's southwest variety with red onion, tomato, pickles, and habanero ketchup on a whole wheat bun (with sincerest gratitude to MS, my vegan guide to WF).

They may be old school, but I'm still a sucker for tofu pups.  With sauerkraut, horseradish mustard, and sliced pickles (when you've run out of relish):

Don't forget the freshly husked corn-on-the-cob:

And, finally: ice cream.  In this case, Coconut Bliss chocolate hazelnut fudge.

Poor vegans; we're always left out of everything.



  1. Yeah! I appreciate when people make real things happen! You are queen of real things.
    Everything looks great, especially those mojitos, heh. So refreshing!

  2. looks like a great feast! hope you had a great holiday week!


Have you got something to say? It would be so nice to hear from you!
