From halloumi burgers to satay skewers: 10 of the best vegan and vegetarian BBQ recipes

As a vegetarian, being invited to a barbecue elicits both cheer and fear. On the one hand: yay! Friends! Sunshine! Day drinking! On the other: what the hell am I going to be given to eat? This paranoia might sound bratty, but it’s not unfounded. Having been a vegetarian my entire life, I’ve been to more barbecues than I can count where the only veggie option on the table is a packet of limp bread rolls (which someone always helpfully suggests you can “fill with ketchup”).

To be fair to carnivores, the prospect of having to cater for those picky, picky vegetarians can seem equally daunting – particularly at barbecues, which have traditionally been associated with meat, meat and, um, more meat.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. There are plenty of amazing vegetarian and vegan recipes that are perfectly suited to barbecues – and we’ve rounded up 10 of the best right here.
