There’s nothing better than the taste of barbecue. Whether it’s snags, haloumi, lentil burgers, an eye fillet or veggo pizza, food tastes better outdoors – we know that because we’ve been in Aussie backyards for 30 years now.
And boy, we’ve seen culinary culture change from the meat and three veg days to some prime vegetarian BBQ techniques. It’s why our barbecues now feature convection roasting hoods, wok burners and integrated side burners to name a handful of handy gizmos helping Aussies be MasterChefs in their own backyards.
We know experimenting in your outdoor kitchen is half the fun. So to give you the inspiration you need for your next vegetarian barbecue here are seven sweet and savoury recipe ideas.
Whether it’s a big occasion or intimate gathering, we’ve got you covered – as does our Big Bugg barbecue. Just like George Gregan, it offers portable powerful performance, with a small footprint, delivering even heat without flareups, extra large versatile cooking surface, plus integrated thermometer.
