4 Super Delicious Labor Day Recipes! »
When I was a wee child, I wasn’t that into Labor Day. Not only did I have no appreciation for a holiday that honors people who fought hard to ensure we only have to work 8 hours a day (I was but a kid!), but, more importantly, I knew it meant the end of summer. And the end of summer meant the end of beaches, picnics, and lazy days by the pool. Boo!
However, as I get older and my appreciation for workers rights and also delicious barbecue grows, I have a new-found love for Labor Day. This summer, my friends and I will rent a house on the Pacific and spend our time boogie boarding, playing board games, and eating all of the BBQ we can get our greedy little mitts on. And since eschewing meat doesn’t mean eschewing tasty eats, here’s a few recipes to ensure that’s true:
1. Seven words: Crispy Tofu Tacos with Creamy Lime Drizzle. I don’t think I need to say anything more, but these are the world’s best tacos. Savory and scrumptious, they combine perfectly grilled tortillas, marinated tofu, and a creamy lime drizzle that will BLOW YOUR MIND. Make (and devour!) these immediately.
2. You don’t think tofu is hearty enough to make the perfect meal? This Go Green Tofu Burger will prove you wrong. Thick, flavorful, and juicy, it’s the ideal recipe to kick off Labor Day with. Or any day, really.
3. Jamaican Jerk Spiced Tofu Kebabs are out of this world. A spicy, savory, and sizzling addition to your Labor Day festivities!
4. This is toasted coconut chocolate pie is the ultimate dessert. I mean, come on. What’s better than chocolate, pudding, fudge, and whipped cream (I made mine by whipping up cold full fat coconut milk! Easy)? Nothing.
Now, get to grilling. And save me some grilled tacos! And also a slice of pie. OK, two slices of pie. (Fine, maybe three slices of pie. And that’s my final offer!)
