Yes, it is possible to have your own vegan barbecue (party) with supplies you buy right from the supermarket. As sunny days are already back this year: the barbecue season has already started! I feel and see it when I’m in the garden. What about you?
In this article, I offer you a selection of plant based alternatives to meats that are available in many supermarkets. However I mainly visit Belgian Supermarkets, I also found some interesting things to buy abroad.
Of course, the offer in many (all?) supermarkets depend on the demand.

I live in Ghent and it might be the most vegan/veggie friendly city in Belgium. And thanks to that, I can count on many plant based alternatives in the supermarkets around my home. And this does not stop at supermarkets of course. Ghent also has many vegan restaurants and coffee bars. And in places that are not vegan, it is not uncommon to find some 100% plant based options.
I will update this list as soon as I discover more and other products worthy of the list. So please, do not hesitate to come back now and then if you are interested, or subscribe to the newsletter to get updates. Also I plan to write some articles with a personal review on the products I tested. I hope it will allow you to find your way around in the (finally) abundant and easy to access offer for you or your plant based family member or (close) friend!
