I am going on an extended camping trip thing for memorial day weekend. Ease is the key for me. I think I'll be doing fake burgers (just throw some on the grill and everyone else can have regular burgers); veggie fajitas (beef fajitas are available for others): portabella strips, zuchini strips, and onions cooked on the grill and a can of pinto beans for some protein; some frozen soup I made recently (Summer Sisters Stew); maybe some veg dogs; and some stirfry veggies.

BTW, you can search recipezaar for veg or vegan (under dietary) recipes that are good for the grill (under preperation/equipment/outdoor/barbecue). Good luck on your cookouts.

Thanks for all the good ideas yall!  This week I tried a recipe off of www.reynoldskitchens.com It was called a corn and black bean packet.  I just put everything in the foil and heated it on the grill.  Then I decided it would be good in a tortillia, which i also heated on the grill.  I highly recomend it!  Even my daddyo ate some  and he usually don't like anything grilled besides meat.

brushetta with fresh bread usually goes down well.  So does my favorite sidedish for picnics and summer potlucks is a simple rice salad (good for non-vegan/veggies because they can recognize all the ingredients and more likely to try it).  its usually a hit.
so simple, fast and very forgiving recipe:

-cooked rice (fridge leftovers are good)
-chopped green or red peppers, apple, raisins, black olives, cucumber, tomato, green onions, grated cabbage, or whatever else you have on hand
-sunflower seeds or chopped nuts
-olive oil
-balsamic vinegar
-sesame oil
-braggs or soy sauce
-onion powder
-ground basil leaves
-crushed garlic

make ahead of time and cool until needed

Here is a great salad recipe.  If you want to make it vegan just leave out the Worcestershire sauce.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon minced onion
10 ounces fresh spinach - rinsed, dried and torn into bite-size pieces
1 quart strawberries - cleaned, hulled and sliced
1/4 cup almonds, blanched and slivered


In a medium bowl, whisk together the sesame seeds, poppy seeds, sugar, olive oil, vinegar, paprika, Worcestershire sauce and onion. Cover, and chill.
Toss strawberries, spinach, almonds and dressing right before serving.

grilling pizzas is really fun.  i haven't done it in a long time, and it does take a little prep and foresight, but it's kind of impressive Smiley

Or just be really lazy and throw some Morningstar/Quorn burgers and hotdogs from your friendly local health food store on the grill. They're delicious and work well for vegetarians who hate vegetables. (Or was I the only vegetarian like that?)

Stay cool, honey bunny, stay cool.
