It is no longer a secret that grilling also goes without meat. Grilling vegetarian or even vegan is not only fun, but has many advantages – not only for our health and the environment. The moral side of meat-eating, and, more precisely, the many-sided disadvantages of mass production, has long been on everyone’s lips and is gaining more and more advocates worldwide. And it should remain so, as sustainable development and environmental awareness are more important than ever before. Although vegetarian barbecuing is a children’s game, you still have to consider some aspects. What kind of vegetables and fruits are best suited as a grilling good? Which oils should you prefer? How is marinated to grill? These are all very simple questions, but they are of crucial importance when you want to grill vegetarian.
So start with the answers!
Grilling vegetarian – a healthy treat for the whole family
Vegetables and fruit varieties
Of course you can try it in principle with everything. There are no strict restrictions. It is ultimately about your own taste, which is as different as everyone else is. Nevertheless, the rule of thumb is that fruits and vegetables for the grill should be water-poor!
To juicy varieties are therefore less suitable. But you can always prepare a delicious meal at the grill with peppers, potatoes, mushrooms, zucchini, artichokes, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, corn on the cob, carrots, chicory or radicchio. Bananas, apples, peaches, pears, pineapples and figs are a delicious alternative to chocolate and cakes.
Avocado is also perfect for grilling
Peel the grill food
To make the grilled something more spicy, you can always taste it with salt, pepper and lemon. Best always after grilling. If you prefer marinated food you should prepare it on an aluminum grill or in a cast-iron pan. In this way, the marinade does not drip directly into the embers and the food also tastes much more juicy. For a tasty, Mediterranean taste it is recommended to use rosemary, thyme, sage or oregano as spices. Curry, turmeric or wasabi, on the other hand, provide a sensual, oriental or far eastern touch.

Tofu and other meat substitutes
The one prepared from Sojamilch tofu Has been found for a long time almost everywhere in the supermarkets and organic shops. Flavor-neutral, light and healthy, this soy product is popular with most vegans and consumed daily. Seitan and Tempeh are two more Vegan meat alternatives , Which are not so well known, but also very healthy and versatile to use during cooking. Both have a meat-like consistency and fit perfectly on the grill. The main difference is the ingredients. Tempeh is made from soy grains and comes from Indonesia. Seitan comes from Japan and consists of wheat protein, which is why it is not for people with gluten intolerance ( celiac Disease ).
Tip: Always brush the grill grate with herb margarine or suitable oils, especially those that can withstand higher temperatures. Sunflower and rapeseed oil are excellent for this.
