What Vegetarian Thing Should I Bring To My Boyfriend's Family Bbq?

Postby lucca79 » Sat Oct 14, 2017 2:39 am

So I live a vegan lifestyle and was invited to my boyfriend's family BBQ. I offered to bring something for myself to be grilled, but I don't now what and would like it to be a lil impressive and not weird among his carnivorous family. I also would like to bring extra for other people to eat, or another dish. I'm just curious of any ideas or tips. Thank you!

Zucchini and squash, cut in to wedges, w/ olive oil, salt and pepper...grilled to tender crisp

Grilled asparagus spears

Corn on the cob grilled in the husks

Pesto pasta salad w/ cucumber and tomato

Grilled veggie pizza

I always take something like a Boca Burger, for myself.
There are lots of pasta recipes that you can make, that are vegetarian.
Just do a search online, and you'll find many.
You could also take a veggie platter.

Keep in mind that they will probably use the same tongs to turn your food that they use for theirs. If this would bother you i would recommend veggies in a foil packet

you could take some zucchinis and cut them long ways into strips, the entire length of the zucchini. Then you could marinade them in some sort of dressing and then just grill them I also add yellow squash and maybe some peppers.

cole slaw with an oil and vinegar dressing

3 bean salad

fruit kabobs

fruit salad

a watermelon hollowed out and filled with a variety of fruits and melon balls(make sure they are NOT from Indiana; salmonella)

vegan chocolate cake

vegan cookies

baked beans

tabouli

quinoa salad with black beans, olives, roasted corn, jalapenos with a nice spicy dressing

stuffed peppers filled with kasha, wild rice and mushrooms

potato salad with an oil and vinegar dressing

While his family may enjoy meat, ALL popular side dishes at a BBQ are generally vegetarian.

I would be willing to bet no one will notice the cake is vegan or the baked beans don't have bacon in them.


All the other items are ALWAYS vegan any way.

Veggie dogs or veggie burgers. simple choices for grilling

Bring a pasta dish that everyone can share.

Vegan versions of what everyone else will be eating.

Or a totally-different, tasty vegan dish.

On a grill? How about mushrooms, onions, potatoes, pineapple, corn? Everyone likes potatoes & corn whether they are a vegetarian or not!

I think potato or sweet potato could be a great idea for the grill
