How to Cater Vegetarian Food at a Barbeque

When hosting a party or a gathering, whether it’s a birthday party, corporate event, or wedding reception, it’s important to make sure that everyone is catered for. Barbecues may be synonymous with meaty favourites such as burgers, hog dogs, and chicken skewers, but that doesn’t mean that mean-free menus need to be off the table.

If you’re throwing a BBQ party at home and you want to cook up some delicious vegetarian food, there’s loads of options to consider. Take a look below for our top suggestions on how to cater vegetarian food for a BBQ.

Best grilled vegetables for BBQ

There’s a host of vegetables which are delicious grilled on a BBQ including peppers, sweet potato, aubergine, and courgette to name just a few. Experiment with your favourite vegetables and glazes, then combine on skewers to make delicious veggie kebabs. Alternate the veg with halloumi or tofu for extra flavours and textures, and discover your own winning results.

Alternatively, try stuffed peppers by halving a bell pepper, filling with rice, beans, corn, and cheese, and barbecue to perfection. Portobello mushrooms are also great with similar toppings, or simply marinated in balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and garlic before grilling.

Best veggie burgers for the BBQ

Carnivores don’t need to hog the fun (no put intended) when it comes to sausages and burgers, with a range of great meat-free options available on the market. Choose between alternative meat products from the likes or Quorn or Linda McCartney, or find your favourite veggie burger made from ingredients such as diced veg, beans, lentils, or quinoa. If the processed meat substitutes aren’t your thing, then the whole food alternatives should the ideal choice.

Simply grab the ketchup, fry up some onions, and serve in a soft white roll for a delicious veggie burger or hot dog, that could give the real thing a run for its money.

Best vegetarian sides for BBQ

When it comes to vegetarian sides for a BBQ you’ll be spoilt for choice, and you’ll even get the local carnivores sniffing around for some action. Corn on the cob is an obvious favourite, but you should also consider the likes of grilled avocado or pineapple, both of which are great on their own, on the side of the plate, or as a topping for a burger. And let’s not forget the king of grilled cheese – Halloumi.

Aside from the grill, cold sides such as green salad, pasta salad, and potato salad are always popular. Couscous, coleslaw and hummus also go down well, and you can serve alongside diced carrots and pitta for added dipping satisfaction.
