Vegetarian BBQ Recipes Every Veggo Needs to Know!
Our meat lovers got a lot of content last month with our Meat Smoking 101 and Meat Smoking Wood and Charcoal Cooking blog so this one goes out to all the veggos out there. Despite common beliefs, vegetarian BBQs can often be a lot more vibrant and nutritional than normal BBQs. With a wide variety of produce available and some really fresh and creative recipes out there you’d be silly not to try a vegetarian BBQ! Here are our favourite vegetarian BBQ recipes:
Sure, there’s the vegetarian burger, but the zucchini fritter blows a standard veggie patty right outta the water! They’re also a lot easier to make.
- 4 medium sizes zucchinis
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup of spring onion
- Two pinches of mint
- Salt and pepper
- 1/3 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
- 2/3 cups of flour
- A hand full of bread crumbs
Grate and drain excess water from the zucchinis and mix in the rest! Mould the mixture into balls and gently press into a patty shape. Grill on the BBQ and serve with yogurt.
Feta, Chilli and Lime Butter
Perfect for smothering over corn on the cob (or anything else really). Mash up some butter, crumble feta and add lime zest, chilli and salt and pepper if needed.
Roasted Butternut Cous Cous Salad
This is a family recipe that wins the best side at every BBQ I go to! Chop and roast up some butternut with garlic, salt and pepper. While its roasting, dice spring onion and red capsicum and prepare the cous cous (see box for instructions). Combine all ingredients and add feta and baby spinach.
Sweet and Spicy Grilled Eggplant
Thinly slice some eggplant (however many are needed). Make a marinade from:
- Balsamic vinegar
- Fresh chilli
- Ginger (a pinch or two)
- Sugar (a teaspoon or two)
Soak the eggplant in the marinade for 1 hour. It should be soft enough to cook but not too sloppy. Grill on the BBQ and serve with a fresh rocket, pear and walnut salad.
