Vegetarian BBQ Packages – 6 Tasty Combinations!

When we think of barbecuing, we immediately think of large pieces of meat sizzling on the grill. We do not participate in that! We prefer to barbecue in a different way, namely with vegetables or with anything that is (preferably) made from vegetable ingredients. Yes, you can do a lot with vegetables on the bbq, for example with vegetarian bbq packages.

Vegetarian bbq packages. Cut the sheets of aluminum foil to size. Cut the vegetables you want to use into pieces. Add spices and seasonings. Mix this together and place on the foil with a little oil or vegetable butter. Close the package and grill on the outside of the BBQ for 20 minutes.

But you can do a lot more with vegetables on the BBQ. You can make vegetable skewers or roast garlic and potatoes among the coals and much more.

Vegetarian Barbecue Packages

A number of things to take into account when you are going to make vegetarian bbq packages. It’s not the hardest of things, but these tips guarantee success!

  • Different cooking times
    A lot, no all vegetables can be used for the vegetable packets. The only thing you have to take into account is the cooking time of the different vegetables. Carrots take longer to cook than zucchini. You can take this into account by using slightly smaller pieces of carrots and slightly larger cubes of zucchini. This way you adjust the cooking time and every vegetable is ready equally quickly.
  • Aluminum foil
    What you always need is aluminum foil. Make sure you take sheets of the same size, so you can never put too much or too little vegetables in it, so that every vegetable package is equally well filled.
  • Place on the bbq
    The vegetarian bbq packages are steamed in the aluminum foil, as it were. This steaming does not have to be done at the highest temperature, so place the packages on the edge of the bbq where it is of course hot but where the coals are not red hot. If you do this, your vegetables will burn and that is of course a shame about all the work.

Making a vegetarian bbq package is actually always the same except for the vegetables you use. You proceed as follows:

  1. Tear off the aluminum foil to the desired size.
  2. Make a selection of vegetables and cut them into pieces and mix them together.
  3. Place the sliced ​​vegetables on a sheet of aluminum foil.
  4. Add the seasonings such as garlic or ketjap manis.
  5. Add the other spices and vegetable butter.
  6. Close the sheet of aluminum foil tightly so that no air can escape.
  7. Place the vegetable package on the outside of the bbq.

After about 20 minutes, the vegetables are cooked. To be sure, you can carefully open 1 package and taste whether the vegetable is cooked. If not, leave it on the BBQ a little longer. Nothing is more insidious than the temperature of a BBQ!
