My husband will be coming home before summer is over and he loves to bar-b-q. I would like to be able to grill some stuff too, but I am not sure what. I am thinking that Garden burgers would be good and I saw a thread on grilled eggplant. I was thinking that kabobs would be good too, but I am not sure what to put on them so I figured that I would ask you for your favorites. I would also like to hear any ideas that aren't kabobs too.<br><br>
Thanks.

Since you mentioned eggplant, I love grilled ratatouille with eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes, onions and garlic. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"><br><br><br><br>
Corn, potatoes, asparagus are other favorites of mine.<br><br><br><br>
And my absolute favorite - grilled pizza. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:">

I love marinated paneer (a firm cottage cheese-like Indian cheese) or marinated tempeh grilled on some skewers with some peppers. Mushrooms in aluminium foil parcels also grill well (you just need to put them for a few minutes, and you can add herbs like rosemary to flavor the mushrooms. Toss with olive oil before you put them into the parcel). Vegetables like Fennel also grill well, and Rose Elliot has an entire book on veggie bbqs.<br><br><br><br>
And our all-time bbq favorite has to be chocolate in bananas: slit a banana vertically (don't poke through the skin on the other side), slip in chocolate into the slit (we like dairy milk), wrap in foil and put on the bbq for a couple of minutes. The chocolate melts and dissolves into the banana <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:">. This is great with some icecream.

Yes, how could I forget mushrooms! My favorite to grill is portabella, which you can put directly on the grill. Marinate it and some grilled onions and bell peppers with vinaigrette, and serve it on a bun. Very yummy.

I actually just checked out a book called, "The Vegetarian Grill" cookbook by Andrea Chesman. If there is any way that you can find it, it talks all about grilling veggies, different marinades for them, the best ways to grill which veggies, etc.<br><br><br><br>
Also I would recommend portobello mushrooms, if you can eat them, I know some people have allergies to mushrooms. Also another one is baby carrots, yep, grilled baby carrots are yummy, this was the first recipe that I decided to try from the cookbook!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:"> You do however need one of those grilling racks.<br><br><br><br>
Toss a lb. of baby carrots with 2 Tbls. olive oil or sesame oil.<br><br>
Grill the carrots, tossing frequently, until tender, about 10 min.<br><br>
Place in serving bowl & sprinkle with coars salt & serve hot!<br><br><br><br>
This recipe was adapted from the cookbook that I mentioned above, "The Vegetarian Grill" by Andrea Chesman.<br><br><br><br>
Happy grilling!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rockon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rockon:"><br><br>

I wouldn't recommend grilling a Garden Burger if it's the traditional recipe ones. They turn into dry, crumbly grainy mush and fall through the grill.<br><br>
Go with the ones that look more like the Boca Burgers or other "burgers" that aren't all vegetable-and-grain looking.<br><br><br><br>
Amy's Texas burgers, Boca Burgers, Morningstar Farms Grillers (which aren't vegan but neither are Garden Burgers so I figured that was an OK recommendation).<br><br><br><br>
Also, as others have mentioned, corn-on-the-cob and portabello mushrooms. People will be SO jealous when you grill up a big beautiful mushroom and put it on a bun instead of a burger.

I grill haloumi cheese and mushrooms, along with vegetables like peppers. I like making kebabs with diced tofu, mushrooms, green and red peppers, onions and thickly sliced courgettes, which I brush with olive oil with herbs.
