Summertime means it’s BBQ season.

But for people who follow a vegan, vegetarian or plant-based diet, BBQs are not always fun or inclusive gatherings.

If you’re lucky you might get Linda McCartney veggie burgers and sausages, but if you’re the only non-meat-eater you may have to settle for bread and lettuce.

I’ve heard so many people say how difficult it is to cater for veggies at a BBQ but the following vegan and plant-based BBQ recipes prove that the choices available are far from limited.

There’s now no reason for people following a vegan, vegetarian or plant-based diet to miss out or leave a BBQ feeling hungry and disappointed.

Not a cow in sight but you can still enjoy a burger or two.

In fact, veggie burgers offer much more variety than your regular beef burger as you can see from the following recipes:

Portobello Mushroom Burger

Zucchini and Black Bean Veggie Burger

Chickpea Burger

Chickpea and Spinach Veggie Burger

Vegan Beet Burger

Veggie Dogs




If you’re unlucky, you’ll be invited to a BBQ where your only option is the salad.

Even then, you can be limited as the coleslaw and potato salad will contain mayo and salad cream. And some of the salads may contain cheese, egg or seafood.

Creamy Vegan Coleslaw

Creamy Avocado Potato Salad

Southwestern Pasta Salad with Black Bean Dressing

Orzo Pasta with Roasted Broccoli & Chickpeas

There are lots of vegetables that behave well on the grill, such as mushrooms, courgette, aubergine, sweet peppers and asparagus.

Who needs ribs, beef burgers and chicken pieces!
