Memorial Day is first and foremost about honoring those who have died serving in the Armed Forces. That’s why we spend that day enjoying quality time with friends and appreciating life and freedom. However, it’s also commonly associated with food. And it’s one of the few holidays associated with food that’s actually usually spent outdoors! Rather than sitting around a big dinner table, Memorial day is spent on picnic tables or laying on blankets on the grass by the grill waiting for your veggie burger or corn on the cob to be ready.
This day kicks off all the summer barbecues and cookouts! We want you to enjoy the best plant-based foods on this day and the rest of summer, so we put together an ultimate guide with over a hundred delicious vegan recipes from the Food Monster App you’re sure to enjoy!
