Vegetarian BBQ dishes

I have a lots of recipes for meat dishes but what I am looking for is some great vegetarian dishes to cook on the BBQ for the veggies but will also appeal to the meaties as well. Anyone got any ideas?

We grill veggies regularly - portobello mushrooms, zucchini, bell peppers, onions, tomatoes. You could also do eggplant, brussel sprouts, potatoes, and more.

Try "Gimme Lean Sausage" by Smartlife(?). It's vegan and yummy. My son-in-law marinates it in horseradish first and then grills it...but I've never tasted it that way. My daughter loves loves loves it. Also, Amy's brand "American Veggie Burgers". They're so good I'm addicted to them and I'm not even a vegetarian.

Mmmm I love portobello mushrooms - do you just put them straight on or do you oil them first?

Never thought of eggplant (or aubergine as we call them over here in the UK) - how do you bbq them, whole or should they be cut up?

I spray the mushrooms with oil and season with salt and pepper or seasoned salt. I halve the zucchini (courgette?) lengthwise, oil and season. For large eggplant, slice inch thick round slices. Smaller ones can just be halved or done whole.

Portobello mushrooms (& courgettes & aubergines) are also terrific marinated first in your favorite Italian-style salad dressing before grilling.

Grilled eggplant:

Slice into thick rounds (1 inch) and brush with garlic infused olive oil or pesto.
Grill (turning as needed) until eggplant is browned and cooked fully.
Top each slice of eggplant with a slice of fresh tomato (or a spoon of tomato sauce), chopped fresh basil, cracked black pepper, and a slice of mozzerella. Close lid on grill for a minute and melt cheese. Serve with salad and bread. Yum

Grill some eggplant, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, zucchini. Cut them up into small pieces ( not too small) and mix them into pasta with garlic and oil ( and salt/ pepper)

Simple, but goes ever time.

What about kebabs(the skewered type) made with various vegetables and Houlimi(not sure about spelling) cheese. Houlimi chease doesnt melt when heated, like other cheeses do.

You could make a sauce to serve the kebabs with, made from lemon, olive oil, salt and sugar. Or else, you could use this sauce as a marinade for the kebabs, before you BBQ them.
