Vegetarian Bbq

Here are some ideas for foods you can use for vegetarian BBQ:

* You can grill your vegetarian guests some tofu. But make sure it's the 'firm' variety and well-pressed. Don't get 'silken' or 'soft' tofu as it will fall apart and will fall through the grill.

* Plain tofu on its own does not have much flavour; although the BBQ process will give it a bit more of a smoked flavour. Ask your guests if they like garlic. You can rub some bruised or crushed garlic across the tofu before you serve it. Or squirt some sauce on it, or next to it on the plate e.g. soya sauce, barbecue sauce, tomato sauce. Or you can just have these sauces on the table & invite your guests to help themselves. Try having some cut slices of fresh lemon for squeezing over food.

* A quick sauce to make is mixing together tahini with some soya sauce, or tamari, squeeze of fresh lemon and crushed garlic.

* You can also buy ready flavoured tofu.

* Corn on the cob is really great, easy and tasty for vegetarian BBQ.

* You can buy several types of vegetarian sausages and burgers or 'mock meat'. The trick is to make sure you carefully read the cooking instructions on the label BEFORE you buy, as some of these products are not suitable to BBQ. Some will clearly say that they are not meant to be grilled so avoid those.

Some more vegetarian things to put on your vegetarian BBQ:

* Yams or Sweet potatoes. You can cook them as they are. Or wrap them in foil. Or half-cook them first before grilling.

* Ordinary potatoes. Can sprinkle them with salt & pepper. Cook as above. Serve with butter, or margarine.

* Portobello (these are large, with thick cap & stem) mushrooms. Brush oil over them.

* Apples. Cut in half. Or make slices. If your guests have sweet tooth sprinkle with cinnamon and brown sugar, or maple syrup.

* Pineapple rings (nice with cinnamon & brown sugar sprinkled on top).

We hope you enjoy your food and company!
