The sun is out, the back of National Vegetarian Week is broken and, as far as barbeques go, my real experience is all meat or meat related – chicken, ribs, burgers, bacon, pudding, wings, the whole lot. Sure enough, the odd spud goes in there (love BBQ spuds), but beyond that, I’m at a bit of a loss in terms of what to cook for a vegetarian barbeque.

The dilemma is this: I got a present of a brand new barbeque for the birthday last weekend and it’s still sitting in the kitchen, the empty can of gas to go along with it in the back of the car and all the goodies that came with it are still in their original bags. With the best weekend of the year by far now upon us, it’s coming out this evening to get some cooking going. But, what does one cook?

In scouring the web for a few suggestions, here’s 10 things you could cook for a vegetarian barbeque.

10 Vegetarian Barbeque Options

  1. Potatoes Plus (grab the tinfoil)
  2. Courgette & Halloumi Skewers
  3. Grilled Zucchini
  4. Barbecued Portobello Burgers
  5. Carrot & Sesame Burgers
  6. Stuffed Peppers On The Barbie
  7. Grilled Eggplant, Halloumi & Pesto Burgers
  8. Chickpea Burgers
  9. Thai Tofu On Lemongrass Skewers
  10. Grilled Asparagus with Spring Onion-Radish “Butter”

So what do you reckon? For someone who doesn’t barbeque any kind of vegetarian food but is wholly intent on spending the next few days beside the grill, can you suggest anything? Have you any favourite veggie BBQ foods?
