The strawberry season is undoubtedly the best time of the year! This red fruit is delicious, but let’s take it to the next level with 75 different recipes! These recipes range from savory entrees to smoothies, delicious salads, and sweet desserts. With these vegan strawberry recipes, there are limitless possibilities to include strawberries in your cooking and enjoy them all year long.
Nothing is more tempting than walking into a store or a farmers market and seeing fresh strawberries. I tend to buy more than one small family that can eat right before they go bad. Enter this strawberry round-up recipe collection filled with all kinds of strawberry recipes. From cakes, popsicles, compote, and even strawberry shortcake crunch topping!
Each recipe in this collection is vegan, so if it says yogurt, the post is for vegan yogurt. In other words, no vegan modifications are necessary!
Selecting Ripe Berries
When purchasing strawberries, here are signs the strawberry is ripe. The color should be bright red, the scent strong and sweet, the top bright green, and the texture firm.
If the strawberry is dark red, soft, is bruised, and the stem is dark green, it is past its prime, and you should pass on buying it.
Conversely, if the strawberry has pink or white patches, it is not quite ripe enough to use immediately. Store the berry on your counter at room temperature for a few days, or put it under a paper bag for faster ripening.
To prepare strawberries, wash them thoroughly in cold water and pat them dry with paper towels or a tea towel. Then hull the strawberry by removing the green stem. The following steps will depend on your recipe. Sometimes, you might need to half or quarter the strawberry; in other cases, the strawberry is a perfect whole.
Now that we have that out of the way let’s get on to the fun part. Strawberry recipes!
