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.

    Grilling is always worth the effort for me. I’ve been grilling everything that’ll stand still lately, nothing is safe! 🙂 For me what I deem possibly not worth the effort/trouble is the smoker box. I love the flavor it gives (especially fish) but having smoke billowing into my eyes and then smelling like I’ve camped for 5 days within 5 minutes is irritating.

    Great recipe round up!

      Oh yeah, a smoker box is just way too advanced for me. Then again, I don’t think those are meant for squash and mushrooms. 😉

    Wow, thank you for this impressive list of vegetarian grilling options. My fiancé and I are only just now starting to experiment with grilled veggies…we’ve always stuck to the simple veggie kebab option. Last week we made an amazing (and simple!) grilled eggplant recipe from Forks Over Knives and that’s when I decided we need to do this more often! Your recipe roundup will most certainly come in handy-thanks again 🙂

      You can’t go wrong with kebabs, but there are definitely lots of other options out there!

    I always love these posts that you do. It’s like a mini cookbook all in one day!

    I like grilled – though not as much as my husband. We own a tiny little bodum grill that was only $100 bucks. It uses charcoal and is the perfect size for the two of us! But your right…it’s a lot of effort!

    Grilled veggies will always be my number 1. Even when I did eat meat, I often chose the veggies over the meat! I’ve never tried grilled peaches, but they look great! When we used to live in America, we had a phase of grilling zucchini about 5 times a week in the summer. mmm good times!

    These look so awesome! I looove grilled veggie-goodness! I actually tried those Hawaiian Shish-Kabobs on Memorial Day. They were delicious! And, I totally am on the same page with the grilling thing. It seems like all of our neighbors have HUGE gas grills. We just use a little charcoal thing for all of our veggie endeavors 🙂

      I love grilling fruit in the summer. I will grill just about everything, but stone fruits are the best. And pineapple!

    Ahh, this makes me want a grill even more. We have to reserve our grilling for the weekend when we go out to my inlaws place but I really want one for our house. People around here grill all year long, which is weird since we live in Canada… but still. Everything looks delicious!

      That’s funny, because here you really could grill all year because the weather is so mild, but I never see anyone in our neighborhood using their grills until late spring. 🙂

    What a fantastic roundup!! We have 2 grills, a charcoal one and a gas one. I love cooking dinner on my gas grill, instead of dealing with my oven. And veggies are my #1 fave thing to grill! I recently grilled cauliflower & Vidalia onion in a grill basket and added it to quinoa for a salad, it was delicious!

    Thanks so much for including that grilled squash pizza – a favorite!
