found capture at 20140525162957 Sitemap I love BBQ's. So the 4th of July is a good day for me, even though I am British!

Hopefully I will be living the high life in Vermont for this years Independence day.

Anyway..... I thought I would suggest some Vegetarian choices for the BBQ as I have not eaten meat in around 10 years!

1. Cajun Vegetables: This one is easy, simple cut your veggies in big pieces, brush with oil and sprinkle with a decent Cajun Spice. Works well with Zuccini, Broccoli, Egg plant and Onions. Just through the big ones straignt onto the grill and the smaller ones can be cooked in Aluminum foil.

2. Corn: Most people already do this, simply brush the sweetcorn with a little butter and salt and slap it onto the grill until it's cooked.

3. Portobello Mushroom Burgers: Grab a couple of portabello's brush very lightly with oil and season with your favorite seasoning. Steak spice works great (check that the brand is vegetarian)! Grill the mushroom until it is warm throughout and serve in a burger bun with grilled onions, lettuce, mustard and ketchup..... an amazing alternative to meat burgers.

4. Stuffed Apples: Cut the cored from the middle of an apple. In a seperate bowl mix currents, a little lemon juice and some brown sugar. Stuff this into the middle of the apple, wrap it in aluminum foil and bake on the grill for 15 mins or so. Carefully unwrap the apple and enjoy as a great desert.

5. BBQ Banana: This is so simple! through the banana on the grill (in it's skin). Cook and turn until the skin is blackened all around. Remove from the BBG, carefully open and serve the hot insides with ice cream.

6. Chick Pea Burgers: These can be pretty hard to get right. I do these by judgment but if you like following exact recipes I suggest you go searching and find one you like. Throw some chickpeas, finely shopped onions into a bowl. Add an egg (unless you are vegan!), some steak spice and fresh chopped herbs. Basil, coriander and parsley are always good. Squash the mixture together and add ingredients until you have a thick paste mixture. Pat the mixture into patties and store in the fridge for a couple of hours.
Simply brush each one lightly with oil and a little salt / pepper then grill until hot throughout. Serve these as you would serve a normal burger.

7. Grilled Halloumi Cheese: Purchase this strange salty cheese from your local supermarket (most stock it) and cut into 1/2 inch thick slices. Throw them on the BBQ and be amazed as it does not melt!! This is ideal in a burger bu with grilled veggies and some relish.

Do you have an vege suggestions?
