Barbecue for Vegetarians?

We are having a barbecue.
A couple of guests are vegans or vegetarians. If you were invited to a barbecue would you go? What would you expect to be served?

  • Grill veggie kababs.
    Throw corn-on-the-cob onto the grill.
    Make baked beans without the pork.

  • I would cook the vegan food first so that you don't have to worry about the cross contamination unless you already planned on using two grills.

  • The suggestions above are great, buy some veggie burgers and grilled them.

  • If I invited vegans or vegetarians I would grill some veggies and make some roasted corn on the cob without the butter for them. You could also grill some large portobello mushroom caps for their "burgers".

  • You could grill some veggie kabobs. Use grape tomatoes, chunks of onion and pineapple. You can also grill stone fruits, like peaches and plums.

  • Veggie burgers inside of a portobello mushroom "bun"

    zucchini slice lengthwise is great barbecued as well.

  • I have to ask. Do vegans fear cross-contamination. Should I use two grills one for meat eaters and one for vegans. You know people these days. I feel the need to please everyone.

  • AH! Great ideas. Thank you so much. Maybe I'll become vegetarian [for a day]. The food sounds delicious.

  • grilled portobello mushrooms, marinate in Italian dressing and grill. Also there should be enough side dishes, salads, veggies etc that your guests can have without feeling like they're missing anything. I know if I had a special diet I would either bring my own or just make do with what was available.
