Father’s Day Cooking with Nut Butter Universe

Father’s Day is almost here, and for families across the U.S., it’s usually a day of relaxing in the sun and enjoying a meal cooked on the grill. Barbecuing isn’t usually associated with vegan cooking, but many tasty vegetable dishes can be cooked on the grill, and Robin Robertson has your Father’s Day meal covered with a menu from her latest book Nut Butter Universe. These dishes are so flavorful and creative, that they’re sure to please everyone in your family, regardless of dietary preference.

Start you meal off with Smoke and Spice Almond Hummus or Crudité with Spicy Cashew Dip.

Once the grill is fired up, you’ll be able to make Grilled Vegetables with Almond Romesco Sauce, along with some Nutty Buddy Burgers.

For a fun alternative to potato salad, serve Roasted Niçoise Salad with Cashew Goddess Dressing with your meal. Or maybe a side of Crunchy Cole Slaw with Creamy Cashew Dressing is more to your liking.

Barbecuing isn’t just for dinner dishes, as these delicious Grilled Fruit Satays with Pineapple-Coconut Peanut Sauce are also cooked up on the grill, and they make for the perfecting ending to this delicious summertime meal.
