I rarely do a barbeque, but a veggie barbeque can be a fine thing. When I'm here in Finland during the summer, a few barbeques are a must. This time I just char-grilled some vegetables, halloumi and rye bread, and that made a very filling meal. I have been eating quite a lot in general on this holiday, so a small diet could be in the cards when I get back to the UK, a healthy diet with affordable pulses etc. Okay, but back to the BBQ theme now.
Here are the components of my meal this time:
- new potatoes (pre-boiled), I could just barbeque new potatoes alone, they get divine after a bit of char-grilling
- bell peppers
- aubergine, rub the aubergine slices with barbeque seasoning and oil
- new season onions
- tomatoes, I put the tomatoes into additional foil bags, as they get very soggy
- rye bread, a must in a Finnish barbeque and so tasty slightly grilled and eaten with some butter
As a veggie barbeque drink I could recommend the Finnish Olvi Hiili 4,5 %, a very dark beer that actually tastes a bit like coal.
What kind of veggie barbeques have you been having?
