When you think of Summer what is the first thing that comes to mind? Hot days, swimming pools and grilling are sure to top you list! I know they do mine.
Summer is a wonderful time for getting together with friends. I love having friends over for drinks on the patio. It is so nice to get outside and enjoy the outdoors.
And Summer was made for grilling out. I’m sure that you have a favorite grilling choice; mine has always been ribs. But BBQ season is not just about grilling meat.
There are so many other delicious meals and sides that are perfect for grilling out, BBQ’s and hot summer weather. I have put together a list of my favorite easy vegetarian solutions that all will enjoy.
Easy Vegetarian BBQ Solutions For All to Enjoy
First has to be a delicious Grilled Vegetable Skewers. I found these at Uncommon Slice of Suburbia and they look perfect! I think the huge mushrooms will make a nice and meaty alternative.
No list is complete without Grilled Corn on the Cob. This is one of my all-time favorite summer meals. I could skip everything else and just eat grilled corn! I like to go with just the basic corn-on-the-grill method and then add lots of butter. However, there is a huge variety of recipe options out there.
Another nice side are these Vegetarian Boston Baked Beans by Kitchen Treaty. This is a BBQ classic! I personally favor the spicy variety and these sound delicious.
I really want to try this Best Buffalo Cole Slaw; doesn’t it sound good?! I think it’s important to have meals that are packed with flavor and this one will deliver.
Next, how about an Easy Cold Cucumber Salad? It’s lighter than potato salad and sounds refreshing. This would go along with almost any meat you serve.
Another favorite is Grilled Zucchini. This is a healthy and delicious go-to side great for any BBQ. You can put this right on the grill so you get that “smoky” great flavor. I usually cut them up into slices and put them in a large Ziploc bag with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic and shake it up. Then I place the pieces right on the grill.
So, when you think of Summer and grilling out I hope you keep a few of these great meatless sides in mind. No grill out or BBQ is complete without good food and great friends. So get outside and enjoy summer and grilling out!
