3 gorgeous Vegan BBQ recipes

An outdoors family party

As the battle to re-balance the climate continues, more of us are turning Vegan. It used to be an eccentric choice, now it’s mainstream. You might be Vegan yourself, or have Vegan friends and family. Either way you’ll want to tickle their taste-buds as well as delight the vegetarians and meat-eaters in your life. Here are three gorgeous Vegan BBQ recipes for you, fresh from the BBC Good Food website, each with an added twist from the food-loving Chimineashop team.

  • Cook for another minute

  • Add the remaining olive oil, 20g toasted pistachios, 20g toasted, roughly chopped hazelnuts, three finely chopped medjool dates, and some chopped parsley
  • Wrap three large red peppers in foil, each in its own package, and BBQ them for 20 minutes

Our tip? Add an extra dimension to this wonderful recipe with 2023’s best Vegan cheeses. Vegan cheese used to taste dreadful. It’s been quite a challenge to get the flavour, texture and behaviour right. But there are some very tasty choices coming onto the market thanks to rocketing demand.
