50 Vegetarian Grilling Recipes

50 Vegetarian Grilling Recipes
I’m pretty sure ours is the only house in our neighborhood that doesn’t have a behemoth of a gas grill in the backyard. (The people behind us even have two gas grills!) I’m not sure if this is because we’re vegetarian or because grilling sometimes seems like too much work and we’re lazy. We do, however, have a little charcoal grill that we fire up on occasion during the summer months.

When meat eaters cook for vegetarians, frozen veggie burger patties are usually their go-to option. And don’t get me wrong, I enjoy them! But if we’re grilling for ourselves, it hardly seems worth all that effort for two little veggie burgers. When I grill, I want to grill something that’s worth it! Well, here are 50 vegetarian grilling recipes that are totally worth it.

    I have a gas grill and I want to use it, but the whole bother has prevented me so far. And I dreamed of grilling all those cold months! I’ve got my eye on the miso-marinated summer squash. Yum.

      I kind of want a gas grill because I feel like it would be easier than charcoal, but a gas grill for 2 vegetarians seems a little much…

    Lots of great recipes here for me to try as well as some recipe books. I have done some
    Bbq recipes but yes veggie burgers and most veggie analogs take so little time to cook it
    Is hard to justify the effort. I just bought a new portable gas grill, a pro model because it will give me the flexibility to fry on a griddle, boil and bake. The temperature is able to be finely tuned so as to cook veggie dishes not just char, burn and overcook. If your grill is adaptable to many different cooking methods then you can easily go on to cook most anything you like.
