We are having a family gathering on Monday and will be doing a bbq. Will get some veggie burgers and sausages but any other ideas/recipes appreciated. No mushrooms please

Skewer chunks of veg, courgette, aub, toms, pepper, delish cooked on the bbq.

Asparagus and corn cobs bbq'd most lovely. Halloumi cheese grills brilliantly too.

Yep came on to suggest hallioumi and veg skewers. Also make sure there are nice sides like coleslaw, potato salad, corn on the cobs etc.

Can I just add, please make sure you are cooking on a separate non-meat grill. My DH is veggie and I usually have 2 BBQs on the go as there's no way he'd eat anything cooked where meat has been cooked before. Sorry, if you already know this but some people don't smile

You can add tofu chunks to the skewers as well - cauldron do a smoked tofu which works really well on a BBQ.

With corn on the cob I'd recommend cooking it first on the hob (ie just boil), then rub it in chilli oil, or red pesto, wrap up in foil then put on the grill. Easy but always seems to impress people.

And yes you have to use a separate grill and utensils, a lot of people don't realise that.

this watermelon, feta and olive salad is a great salad to have on buffet/at BBQ.

I do lots of veggies (peppers, aubergine, courgette, onion, beef tomatoes etc) marinated in an olive lemon garlic dressing, haloumi grilled separately, I'm not keen on veggie kebabs unless you can cook all the items on the kebab at the same time, which in my experience people can't. Serve with BBQ'd flat bread. Elevate the flavour by making your own relishes and salsas - this will make the most difference to what ever you cook. And make sure there is enough veggie stuff because quite often it looks more appealing than the over cooked meat wink
