9 Vegetarian Grilling Recipes to Inspire Your Next Cookout
There’s more to meatless grilling than veggie burgers. Don’t get us wrong, we love the classics, but there’s plenty of room for creativity when it comes to your vegetarian grilling menu. Here are our favorite vegetarian recipes for the grill that will please everyone at your cookout.
Marinated Grilled Veggies
There’s a reason grilled veggies always make it on vegetarian grilling menus—they’re simple and delicious. Fresh veggies don’t require a big fuss, a generous drizzle of olive oil, a squeeze of lemon, and a bit of garlic will do. Grill up a big side of veggies after a haul at the farmer’s market or to clear out your kitchen at the end of the week.
Spicy Vegan Elote
We’ve got three words: finger-licking good. Elote, or Mexican street corn, is just as beautiful as it is tasty. This recipe uses dairy-free cotija cheese and pinot-based mayonnaise to make it vegan friendly. Top with jalapenos, cayenne, and a squeeze of lime and serve with a pitcher of margs.
Grilled Margherita Pizza
Take pizza night outside! Top with marinara sauce, Alpine cheddar, and chopped fresh basil to make a light, crispy pizza that’s perfect for summer nights. We think these simple ingredients speak for themselves, but we have plenty of inspiration to please all of the pizza lovers at your table. Forget the burgers and hotdogs, and have a pizza bar at your next cookout.
Grilled Peaches with Ricotta
Homemade ricotta topped with juicy, seared peaches is the perfect dish to top off a night of vegetarian grilling. We like to use peaches, but go for whatever stone fruit is freshest at the market. If you need to save time, you can use store-bought ricotta instead of making your own.
