Lightbulb Veg outdoor cooking?

What can I cook outdoor if my fiends are vegetarians?

Grilled vegetables are boring

Any advice?

Vegetable fritters. Reheat some home-made thick and spicy vegetable soup. Pan fry some tofu, add it to some pasta with a tomato sauce, some mushrooms and various dried herbs of your choice. Bake some potatoes in the coals of your fire or bbq, top with some chunky salsa and crumbled cheese such as feta. Tofu satay sticks. A frittata.

Most of these things you could either buy partially prepared or make them yourself before going and just do the actual cooking while camping.

Do your friends think they're boring? I *love* grilled veggies. I like to put marinate them in balsamic vinaigrette, then serve them over salad greens. I also chop them finely and mix them with rice or couscous.

My grill has a pan burner on it; sometimes I use that to saute peppers, onions, and zucchini with garlic, olive oil, and thyme.

You could grill bread and make various types of bruschetta.

HTH.

Mushrooms with garlic and butter in tin foil. Various antipasti are also good, as GotGarlic explained. Simply grill peppers, zucchini, onions, garlic, etc and drizzle olive oil mixed with herbs over the top. I dont think thats boring at all!

Make a pizza out of those grilled vegetables, using a Boboli, charred a bit on the grill, (for lines and warmth), then add some sort of cheese and the grilled vegetables.

Baked potato skins....

Napoleons with thick, grilled slices of butternut squash, cheese, and potato slices.

Well, VB - I don't know if Boboli is easy to find in the Republic of Moldova where Nasika lives ... but, I agree with the idea ... a flat-bread pizza with grilled veges! YUM!!! That is, if her friends eat cheese (some vegetarians don't).

I have made little pizzas from wheat pitas topped with olive oil, a smear of baba ganoush, diced tomatoes, sliced black olives, artichokes and feta cheese - heated up on the grill until the pita is toasted and the cheese melts.

Personally, I don't find grilled vegetables boring at all! But, I must admit they would be better with a side dish of roasted leg of lamb!

Besides it all depends on how you grill those vegies. Some good zukini, bell peppers, add the mushrooms, some balzamik vinegar, it will be great.

OMG what kind of veggies are you grilling and how are you doing to come up w/ something "boring"?? A skewer of red peppers/white onion wedges/green peppers basted w/ evoo and left on the grill long enough to begin charring around the edges is one of the reasons to get out a grill! It's pretty, fun, and oh-so tasty! A little s & p, pop a cork of something fruity, and, man, I'm in heaven.
