Easy BBQ idea

It might actually, dare I say it, be Summer! 🙂 The UK is not known for it’s great amounts of sunshine, but finally the rain, storms and winds have died down and we are promised a weekend full of glorious weather!

Great weather = great food = barbeque time! 😀 Yay!

Okay, if you’re a meat eater, barbeques are a relatively easy thing! Turn it on, slap some meat, fish or chicken on and hey presto, lunch (or dinner) is ready! Okay, so I know it’s not that easy as there’s always prep and marinades to sort out, skewers to thread, burgers to make etc., but it’s a lot easier than cooking on a barbecue for a vegetarian or a vegan.

So, of course, you can have the obvious vegetable skewers, or buy ready made plant-based burgers, sausages, steaks, grills etc., but if you’re after something different, something very tasty, but oh so easy, why not try tofu! Okay, so tofu might not be the first thing you think of when you think of barbeques, but if you get a firm tofu, press it to get all the liquid out, then add your own flavourings and marinades, it is such a fantastic food for barbequing!

You can do plain (boring), or spicy (yummy), or anything in-between! Garlic is great, Italian herbs are fantastic, salt, pepper, rub it all in with a splash of olive oil, place on a foil tray and throw on the barbecue, or cook in the oven (if you don’t want all the meat near your tofu). Top the tofu with sliced or halved tomatoes, some pepper rings, onion if you like, wait until its all cooked and to your desired crispiness then enjoy! 🙂

Have you tried these barbecue-happy sides? Our traditional coleslaw is always a winner, these coleslaw variations go great too, potato salad is filling and there’s never any left of this chopped salad!

Short but sweet today – busy day (again)! and I must check out the sunshine rather than stay indoors! It’s good for my bones! 😛

Have a great weekend, fire up the barbeque and enjoy!

    I’m actually going to a BBQ tomorrow? I doubt there will be tofu but I’m hoping there are lots of veggie sausages lol. Enjoy the heatwave! I’m so envious it’s only a brief one hehe?
