Easy Vegan Braai Recipes
I have discovered some easy vegan braai recipes to compliment our regular family braais. For my readers not in South Africa, a braai is the South African cook out or barbecue on an open fire.
We have braais at least once a week. It’s a quick fix to a lazy night after a long day. The Hubby loves braaiing, but with me going through my 3 month vegan trial, I thought it was going to be very hard for me to include my meals on the fire.
I’m happy to report that this is, in fact, not the case. *YAY* Here are some really delicious recipes I can’t wait to try pop on the fire at our next family braai.
Grilled Ratatouille Kebabs from The Fitchen
This grilled ratatouille kebab recipe is a skewered version of a classic French recipe using summer zucchini, squash, and eggplant. It’s a simple, but delicious kebab combination.
Easy grillable veggie burgers from Minimalist Baker
You guys, I don’t even know where to start, other than, I MADE A VEGGIE BURGER THAT’S GRILLABLE.
All hail the veggie burger!
This burger requires just 10 ingredients (give or take a spice) and comes together in 30 minutes (once your brown rice is cooked).
Seitan Satay with Spicy Peanut Sauce (Vegan) from Sunnyside Hanne
When my hubby tasted these succulent seitan satay for the first time he closed his eyes and muttered ”you captured it, you captured the taste and texture I remember”. Serve it with my delicious easy-peasy peanut sauce (that also doubles as the marinade) and you have an appetizer your guests will rave about.
Jamacan Jerk Grilled Eggplans (30 Minutes!) from Minimalist Baker
If you like spicy, saucy food, this recipe is for you. And seeing as we are about to enter grilling season (at least in the Pacific Northwest!), it’s the perfect time for another a grillable plant-based recipe.
Portabello Steaks with Avocado Chimichurri from Minimalist Baker
I know what you’re thinking. Here we go with the fake meat substitutes and crumbly veggie burgers (see my Grillable Veggie Burgers here!).
But not so fast! Here’s my new, go-to plant-based option: Grilled portobello mushrooms in a saucy marinade with spicy avocado chimichurri.
Portobello & Peach Burger for Designsponge from
When Design*Sponge – one of the coolest design blogs on the web – asked if we would like to do a recipe for them, we were quick to say yes. So a few weeks ago we went out to our country house and made one of our favorite summer dinners, Portobello Burgers. We always eat them with mashed avocado and some kind of salsa, instead of the old ketchup and cheese combo. They are very easy to make and taste so incredible fresh. For this recipe we added grilled peaches instead of making a salsa.

Best Darn Veggie Burgers (Vegan & Grillable) from Love & Lemons
We’re crazy about these veggie burgers. I’m not usually one to title recipes as “Best Ever!!,” or “Ultimate!!” because I’m quite a shy person and that seems loud, but I am absolutely smitten with these.
Balsamic Garlic Grilled Portobello Mushrooms from Sassy Southern Yankee
Of all the things with this lifestyle change for the next 30 days the thing I think I will miss most is my diary free coffee creamer sad, but true! Anyway in an effort to mix things up right out of the gate I made these Balsamic Garlic Grilled Portobello Mushrooms. They are great as a side or as the main course with some other veggies.
