Meat-Free BBQ: Vegetarian-Friendly Grilling Recipes

No bio available

Vegetarian friendly and vegan side dishes and recipes for a barbecueBy Kristin Sidorov
Folks across the country are pulling out their grills from hiding and reinstating the tradition of a good old-fashioned barbecuing. And while the world of summertime grilling is usually ruled by meat, recent years have shown a new trend toward making that world a little more vegetarian and vegan friendly—without compromising the wonderful, smoky flavor that we all crave once summer officially arrives.

It’s not hard to make almost any menu vegetarian-friendly, and getting your daily share of the green stuff is important to keep in mind. These creative and healthy recipes go beyond your average grilled vegetable plate to give you delicious variety and a nutritional boost to keep your diet in check.

In the mood for a burger?
Try these delicious, meat-free recipes stuffed with flavor and healthy ingredients like spinach, a nutritional super food, antioxidant-rich Portobello mushrooms, and beets, a great source of potassium and Vitamin C.
Chickpea and Spinach Burgers (Naturally Ella)
Balsamic Portobello Mushroom Burgers (Alida’s Kitchen)
Quarter Pounder Beet Burger (The Post Punk Kitchen)*
Barbecue Tofu Burgers (Fit Sugar)*

Or char-grilled flavor with a twist:
Give your barbecue a run for its money with these inventive recipes designed to maximize your grill’s ability to do what it does best—give food that can’t-beat-it smoky flavor. A fresh take on ratatouille gives new life to classic grilled veggies, while char-fired flatbreads open up grilling to a while new ballgame. All with almost no saturated fat or cholesterol, and tons of nutrients.
