Easy & Delicious Veggie BBQ Dishes

As the nation prepares for a summer spent at home, there’s no better time to whip out the barbecue and swap our traditional meat-fuelled mains and side dishes for something more plant-based. Forget grilled halloumi and veggie kebabs, these veggie BBQ recipes are packed full of new flavours, guaranteed to win over all of your guests.

Potato Salad with a Punch

Potato salad at a BBQ – groundbreaking. Although this typical stodgy side dish might not appear to be so ‘out-of-the-box’, trust us when we say you’ll love this pimped out version. Adding sharp and tangy mustard together with a healthy dose of Red Leicester cheese or creamy cheddar will bring your everyday potato salad up a few notches.


  • Diced baby new potatoes (cooked then left to cool)
  • Red Leicester or Cheddar Cheese
  • Spring Onions – Thinly Sliced
  • Chives – Snipped
  • Mayo
  • Mustard (your choosing)

Super Easy Tabbouleh Salad

This Middle Eastern side dish is incredibly easy to make and a hit with pretty much everyone. Bang together couscous (or bulgar wheat), tomatoes, onions, pomegranate seeds and a few herbs, including mint and coriander, together in a bowl and you’re good to go. For even more flavour, try making your tabbouleh the evening before your BBQ allowing all the flavour to marry into each other overnight.


  • 500g Couscous (or bulgar wheat)
  • 2 Red Onions – Thinly Sliced
  • 3 Medium Tomatoes – Thinly Sliced
  • Fresh Coriander
  • Fresh Mint
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Pomegranate
  • Juice of 1 Lemon

Curried Barbecue Corn on the Cobs

Before you place your corn cobs on the grill, peel back the husks (without removing completely) and cover them in a generous helping of ‘curry spread’ aka a mixture of curry powder, salt, sunflower spread and garlic. Of course, the level of spice for your curry powder depends on how much you and your guests can handle but it never hurts to slightly push those boundaries.


  • 4 – 6 Corn Cobs (With husks)
  • 8 tbsp Curry Powder
  • 5 Garlic Cloves (Crushed)
  • 8 tbsp Sunflower Spread
  • Salt

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burgers

These burgers will make you question why you even bothered with meat in the first place (maybe). For a crispy-on-the-outside, soft-in-the-inside, perfect veggie burger, combine cajun-spiced black beans with a mixture of sweet potato, oats and spinach then and a dollop of avocado creme and grill until desired. Delicious.


  • 1 Medium Sweet Potato (Baked)
  • 1 Tin Black Beans
  • 2 tbsp Cajun Spice
  • ½ Cup Oats
  • 100g Spinach
  • 1 Garlic Clove (Crushed)
  • Avocado Creme (As a condiment)

Grilled Peaches Drizzled in Honey and Yoghurt

In all fairness, desserts aren’t typically reserved for meat-eaters, but we couldn’t help but add this last BBQ dish to the list. Serve up a sweet treat by halving, pitting and grilling peaches just enough so that you’re left with a crispy imprint on one side. Drizzle with honey and add yoghurt with a hint of cinnamon. The perfect ending to yet another BBQ.


  • 6 Peaches (Pitted)
  • 1 Dollop Greek Yoghurt (Per Peach)
  • Honey (Drizzled)
  • Cinnamon (Sprinkled)
