vegan cheeseburger

It’s a beautiful day to make a Meatless Monday… and this Sunday will be an equally delectable opportunity to create a Meatless Father’s Day! While Dad might not be too stoked on the idea of a meatless anything, we’ve rounded up a bevy of the web’s best vegan recipes that are anything but “rabbit food.” In fact, from one Daddy’s Girl to the next: nothing will say it quite like this home-cooked, conscious meal that’s made with love and care.

With the summer weather flowing, an outdoor celebration is likely. And, what does that mean? Perhaps something squished between the likes of a bun. Over at Keepin’ It Kind, the Lentil Mushroom Cheeseburgers made with Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto and Cashew Cheez will ensure that Dad doesn’t even wonder, “Where’s the beef?”

If your dad will only eat his fruit grilled, give this other alternative burger a go. Spabettie is serving up a Grilled Pineapple “Bacon” Sandwich that turns a succulent tropical fruit into an excellent condiment. 

Couple your manwiches with a healthier version of everyone’s favorite side: French fries. The Starved Writer has a great rendition of Oven Baked French Fries with Parsley and Lemon. 

Leave Dad with something sweet, always. It might taste like you slaved all day on this one, but this dessert from a Splash of Vanilla is ridiculously simple: Cacao Avocado Mousse with Maple Macadamia Topping.
