Cooking with beer: 7 vegan recipes for dishes with beer


If you’re thinking we’re having a drink today for our backyard National Beer Day celebrations, you’re right. But what you might not know is that we’re stepping up our brewing game by sharing seven plant-based dishes made with this frosty drink. Beer has made its way onto the food trend scene, meaning everyone can enjoy a frosty libation. From moist, thick cupcakes and beer-battered tofu tacos to thick chocolate brownies and beer macaroni and cheese, we’ve compiled a list of the tastiest vegan beer dishes to whet your appetite. So, raise your glass, but don’t take a sip. Instead, enjoy beer cooked into your food. Bottom up!

Thyme & Love

1 Vegan beer sausages

With baseball season underway, beer-infused brats are the perfect addition to any beer day celebration. Do like Thyme & Love and simmer your favorite beyond-meat brat in a bath of your favorite summertime brew for a flavor you won’t soon forget. Served between soft pretzel buns and loaded with all the sides, top this classic with a side of potato salad (or even baked beans!) for the ultimate meal.

Vegan Yack Attack

2 Thai BBQ Beer Canned Cabbage with Daikon Slaw

If you’re the kind of person who likes to experiment with your food, try these inventive sliders from cookbook author (and VegNews contributor) Jackie Sobon. Packed with grilled beer cabbage (in which a cabbage is disemboweled, beer thrown in, and the beer-stuffed cabbage is slow-grilled until tender and infused with hoppy spice), the sandwich’s Asian-inspired barbecue sauce and light daikon slaw make for a hit incredible handheld experience.

3 Beer & Brat Mac ‘n’ Cheese

Another delicious culinary invention from Jackie Sobon’s kitchen, this Oktoberfest-worthy macaroni and cheese is the ultimate comfort food. The cashew-based sauce absolutely swoons thanks to its luxuriously creamy texture and the added zest of the Golden Ale beer. We’d smother almost anything with it, but Sobon pairs it with perfectly cooked pasta and hearty chunks of vegan seitan bratwurst.

Minimalist Baker

4 Vegan Beer Chili

Is it ok to drink alone if you pour the beer in a pot with chilli? We say yes, which is why Minimalist Baker’s one-bowl wonder is our staple for nights we’re curled up on the couch. Although the recipe serves eight, we find it best suited to the single lifestyle. Simple ingredients? Check. Easy to prepare? Yes (less than an hour). freezer friendly? You bet! Plus, the beer gives it a robust flavor and the beans add substance to this soup. Serve in a pint glass for a celebratory touch and enjoy your party.

Hot to eat

5 Vegan Beer & Cheddar Bread Bowl Dip

Beer and cheese is the harmonious grown-up equivalent of peanut butter and jelly, which might explain why Hot for Food created the ultimate gooey, cheesy, plant-based dip perfect for movie night in (sea ​​spiral, everyone?). The dip is based on potatoes and cashews for its classic thick texture, while beer, spices and pickled jalapeños enhance its bold, complex flavor. The dip is poured into a bread bowl and topped with vegan cheddar, scallions, and coconut bacon, so skip the ingredients and start tearing that bowl apart.

Healthy Happy Life

6 Crispy tofu tacos in beer batter

Those who say they don’t like tofu have obviously never had Kathy Patalsky’s beer batter creation. The blogger turns those boring soy blocks into crave, beer-soaked bites that are easy yet satisfying when paired with pickled onions, cabbage, avocado, vegan chipotle mayonnaise, and hot sauce. The tofu is crispy on the outside, tender on the inside and tastes delicious in a warm tortilla. We make extra for our salads, sandwiches and buddha bowls.

Chocolate covered Katie

7Chocolate stout brownies

Stout is an acquired taste, but everyone can learn to love their chocolate accents thanks to these decadent vegan brownies. Made by healthy vegan dessert blog Chocolate Covered Katie, these guiltless brownies are fudgy, filled with chocolate chips, and a surefire treat. Note: Katie highly recommends letting these sit in the fridge overnight before serving, so plan ahead and make them the night before. We’re not going to judge if you celebrate a day earlier by eating the dough.
