Vegetarian BBQ solution

Discussion in 'Veggies' started by onthedeck, Aug 23, 2010.

  1. We have a commercial BBQ catering company. I am desperately trying to find a vegetarian substitute for BBQ...What is easy to make and can be served along side pulled pork and chopped chicken that i can serve my vegetarian brethren instead of always doing veggie burgers...suggestions???????

    I like to slice eggplant dip in egg whites and then bread crunbs, I gril it but bet smoked would be good too.  put on kaiser roll and top with bermuda onion and hot mustard

    Garden salad, pertater salad, macaroni salad, mac and cheese ( one of my personal favorites to pass up ), grilled corn on the cob, corn bread.

    You can't please all the people all the time..

    wow and I thought cooking for my wife was hard!  I'd just take a 3x4 poster of a cow crappin on the grass and ask which they want..the cow or the grass.

    tofu might be your best bet  they have tofu hotdogs  mmmmmmmm..maybe not

    I don't blame you for wanting to get away from the Veggie Burgers.

    A buddy brought a couple here, so his wife & daughter didn't have to eat meat. There were two left here when they went home. I gave them to my Lab. He looked up at me, as if to say "are you nuts?", and walked away. Anybody with a Lab knows how fussy they are! I chucked 'em out in the back yard. It took three days for the raccoons to eat them!

    LOL---My Lab gave me the same look as he did the time I stopped him in the middle of a big water puddle in the driveway, and said, "Shadow----Sit!"

     I would rummage through a few garbage cans before I'd eat one, that's for sure..[​IMG]

    Those big mushrooms are supposed to be pretty good. Don't remember the name, but on the grill the wife says they have an almost meaty texture.

    You are talking about the fabulous Portabello mushroom - makes a great "burger" with some cheese and onions and the chopped stems - not cheap but really worth the effort and $$

    Smoked green beans a little EVOO, garlic, salt, and pepper, I fed a vegan this and it was a big hit. You could also serve smoked vegitarian pizza. That wont work if they are vegan though.

    My wife has a recipe for a Chili.

    Its made with crumbled soy protein or something like that, it is really good, if you're interested I will get hold of the recipe.
