Cool Need your ideas for a vegan bbq episode...

Hi all,

As Summer is threatening to present us with a day or two of decent weather over the next couple of months, we're going to be shooting a BBQ themed episode of Happy Food and would be keen to find out any ideas people might have for what they'd like to see.

Are you happy with a Portobello mushroom on a roll or would you prefer a juicy vegan burger to rival those you see on the more 'traditional' BBQs?

Let us know your wants, needs, ideas and desires and regale us with your BBQ based tales and fails! We promise not to steal your recipes and you might find yourself grilling something you've always wanted to grill without ever having known how!

Our Game of Thrones episode is currently available on our website (link in my signature)- featuring hearty winter veg stew served in our home-made vegan bread trenchers and some lovely, light Dornish lemon cakes topped with fresh, vegan lemon curd- because here in the UK, although it may currently be Summer, Winter is always coming...

Any veggies cooked on the bbq are great! Especially sweet corn on the cob.

Hi LedBoots,

Ah, you can't beat a decent bit of hot, sweet, bbq'd corn!

Anything anybody has always thought should be there but haven't been able to find? We're thinking about doing a vegan kofta-style kebab, for example...

I'm not a big fan of grilling, but I LOVE grilled fresh pineapple! I've put bananas in foil and paired the two with soy ice cream and crystallized ginger bits.
I've never done seitan grilled, just bbq in the oven. I think I'd dry it out too much unless it was wrapped up with the sauce?

I've seen watermelon grilled, but that doesn't appeal to me at all.

I too love grilled pineapple!

I have never had grilled seitan, but i have seen recipes where a log of it is wrapped in tin foil and baked with bbq sauce on. Maybe this would work?

Grilled pineapple is polarising in the extreme. I've seen people go pink with excitement and others go white with disgust at the mere thought. I've actually heard of grilled pineapple topped with salt-caramel working well.

And yeah, watermelon grilled doesn't sound too great!

What are your thoughts on substitute BBQ staples like vegan burgers, sausages and steaks?
