What's the best veggie stuff to chuck on the BBQ?

The Bouldery_BitsB'Q is used pretty well year round. I love Chucking asparagus, peppers, sweet potato and big mushrooms on.

What veggie stuff so you folks like? 

(Hopefully no one suggests eating Wild Scallions...)

I have made some lovely carrot and sesame burgers, they worked well. Also I do skewers with bits of pepper, onion, halloumi and mushrooms. Sweet potatoes or corn on the cob in tinfoil in the embers.

Yum, bbq is always good! 😋

Oh, and a bit fiddly to prepare, but thin slices of aubergine spread with pesto wrapped around a piece of halloumi. Put a cocktail stick through it to hold it together

  • Slice one banana end to end through the shorter curved edge - slice into the centre.  
  • Place 6 squares of dairy milk chocolate deep in to the cut
  • Wrap the banana in tin foil with an overlapping seam on the longer curved edge
  • BBQ for 5 minutes
  • Unwrap, peel and enjoy.

Halloumi.     

You can make it into kebabs with vegetables if you want to be healthy.

This sounds outrageous. That's got to happen.

I'm easily amused. And anyway, to the original question the answer is "the chef".

Halloumi

Large mushrooms - cook the concave side then put some melty cheese (camembert, soft goat, whatever) and herbs in when you flip to cook the convex side

Mixed veg kebabs as stated.

Veggie sausages

Corn on the cob

And we're pescatarian so usually get a couple of whole fish gutted to barbecue. 

Add salad and crusty bread and there's a feast 😀

Grab 2-3 large aubergines.

Put them directly on the coals, no foil or anything.

Turn them at some point.

You are aiming for the skin to be more or less burnt and the aubergine to have shrivelled up through water loss considerably.

Take them out, cut them in half lengthwise, scoop all the flesh out, making sure to get as much of the condensed stuff stuck to the skin as you can (which is surprisingly not incinerated at that point).

Put in a mixing bowl, add salt, lemon juice, 2-3 cloves of garlic, half an onion, some parsley and a lot of olive oil in. The more olive oil the better but obviously do it to your tastes and... self control.

Mix vigorously with a fork.

Enjoy your incredible melitzanosalata/baba ganoush.

Edit: The more the aubergines shrink the better it is going to be, the less resulting product you have the more intense the flavour is.

A big lump of steak. It counts as being vegetarian if you work through it logically. 

You are what you eat, cows are vegetarian, ergo cows must be a vegetable. 

My logic and I'm sticking to it.

What you've already mentioned plus: corn on the cob; baby gem lettuce halved and charred cut side down; pearl onions; yes, "wild scallions" or regular spring onions or better calcots; slices of fennel; veggie white pudding if you can get it.

Small to medium size leeks thrown directly on the coals until blackened, then strip the outer leaves off and they've gone smokey, sweet and soft inside.

Veg loves a bit of mild woodsmoke so if you have any cherry or apple wood chips add some damp in a few little foil cones amongst the coals.

Most people's dislike of aubergines stems from... most people in the UK, professional chefs in major restaurants included, having absolutely no idea how to cook an aubergine without causing them to be a slimy disgusting mess. Try this, and if you still dislike all aubergines, rather than just crap aubergine dishes, throw them away indeed. ;-)

I've only every eaten aubergines abroad, Spain, Turkey and Greece to name a few.

I didn't think anyone would take my post seriously, apparently I was wrong.

Aubergines are life, aubergines are love! I live with someone who hates them, so the struggle to convert people over is real. 😆
