Besides mock-meat foods, try these flavorsome foods on the grill for a great veggie barbecue experience:
Pineapple rings – great on their own or sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon Portobello Mushrooms – brush with oil, grill and serve like a burger with all the condiments Sweet Potatoes – wrap them in foil and grill or better yet, pre-bake, slice in half and brush with maple syrup and oil before grilling Asparagus – soak it in water for 30 minutes before grilling, or you’ll dry it out before it cooks Corn on the Cob – a classic and a favorite with both veggie and non-veggie guests Apples – slice them in half and sprinkle with cinnamon and brown sugar before grilling
Alternatively, look to other cultures for inspiration. Kebabs are traditionally cooked over a charcoal grill and vegetarian kebabs can be as simple as a few pieces of marinated tofu interspersed with vegetables on a skewer. Now could be a good time to experiment with meat kebabs too: lamb is a great barbecue meat and the foundation of many kebab dishes.
Try flavoring your vegetarian foods before cooking them. Veggie foods are often not as strongly savory as meats, but they can be flavored with spices or marinades to achieve a similar effect. Try tikka spices form India, or Thai lemongrass sauces. Veggie barbecue food can be better than shriveled veggie mock-weiners, and you might improve the experience for the meat-eaters among you too. Surprise yourself!
