5 vegetarian BBQ recipes

When you think of BBQ, you think of meat. This is the first thought of many. But is this entirely justified?

Nowadays, our cuisine is much more extensive than potatoes, meat, and vegetables. Vegetarianism has played an important role in this. In supermarkets, the vegetarian shelf is often even more varied than the meat department. Yet you are still looked at strangely if you want to organize a vegetarian BBQ. Now, most meat substitutes are not very inviting - although they are getting better and better -but who says that for a vegetarian BBQ you have to buy the entire vegetarian section?

Here are 5 surprisingly tasty vegetarian BBQ recipes, for the herbivores and carnivores among us. Don't be afraid  to not serve meat to your friends!
