Vegetarian Picnic Recipes | Naturally Ella

When I was in college, at the first sight of spring, we would haul all our books out into the grass and stay there for hours. Coming out of the Chicago winter meant that anything 60 (with sun) felt amazing (even though we probably looked a bit out there in shorts!) And of course, I’d always haul out snacks too. I love a good picnic whether it’s after a long hike, a swim at the beach, or a quick rest area stop on a road trip. Over the years I’ve really upped my picnic food game and below are just a few of my favorite vegetarian picnic recipes.

Sandwiches and Wraps

Curried Cauliflower Wraps | Vegetarian Picnic Recipes

I have to admit that the sandwich feels a bit boring in comparison to the other items on this list. However, there are numerous ways to make a veg sandwich exciting. Layer on the vegetables, make some fun sauces, and if all else fails, egg salad!

 

Salads

Cucumber Peanut Salad | Vegetarian Picnic Recipes

Picnic salads have to be hearty- usually no light greens involved. I love using whole grains, firm greens, and legumes. Don’t be afraid of big spices and lots of herbs.

 

Grain Bowls/Salads

Spelt Grape Salad with Chickpeas | Vegetarian Picnic Recipes

Give me a good grain-based salad any day. There are so many combinations that it is easy to feel inspired. I usually just pick up whatever is fresh at the market and cook up one of my favorite grains. During the warmer months, I love fruit in my salads- so refreshing!

 

Legume Bowls/Salads

Black Bean Salad with Roasted Sweet Potatoes | Vegetarian Picnic Recipes

Whenever we leave the house for stretches of time, I always make plenty of protein-heavy meals and snacks. These legume bowls and salads are hearty, filling, and hold up to time in a cooler.
