For me, a BBQ is always such a treat. I’ve compiled my best BBQ food ideas to get you excited for the summer months ahead.
There’s something about barbecues that are just so special. BBQ’d food is so distinctive and when sharing with friends you know you are in for a fun night, especially if the weather plays ball and fits in with your plans.
When planning a BBQ, I love chatting with Bruce, my butcher – he always manages to inspire me by suggesting something a bit out of the ordinary or fun. Think, well marinated tender turkey kebabs to change up the menu or blackened beer braised short ribs to tick the macho and manly dish off the menu.
People automatically think of meat when they think BBQ and, of course, everything that springs to mind is extremely tempting but a BBQ can also be deliciously vegetarian-friendly too. After all, you always need something to go with the truck load of meat you plan on cooking.
When it comes to the vegetarian choices there are plenty of options to enjoy as a full vegetarian dish or as perfect accompaniment side dishes. I want to be as bold as to say that almost any vegetable can be cooked on a BBQ which gives an endless list of opportunity to create vibrant, tasty and exciting side dishes.
