Vegetarian BBQ recipes: veggie skewers, grilled mushrooms, potatoes cooked in ember and crispy pita bread.
I love barbecues! This was the first time I made a vegetarian BBQ and it was a success! Even my non-veg friends enjoyed it. Here you’ll find 5 recipes you can make for your own Vegetarian BBQ menu. I also made a huge salad bowl but unfortunately I didn’t take any pics, I was just starving.. not in the mood for taking photos
This vegetarian BBQ menu is low fat, low calorie and veeeery diet friendly so nothing to worry about. Some of them are vegan and GF too!
