Veggie recipe suggestions for a gas BBQ

17/08/2010 Being a vegetarian doesn't mean you have to miss out on great food cooked on a gas BBQ, according to one expert.

Sarah Giles, editor at Easy Cook, said that vegetarian cooking has moved away from the traditional frozen veggie burger and in fact "some of the best BBQ food is meat-free".

Ms Giles recommended that people make their own bean burgers by mixing a tin of kidney beans, breadcrumbs, chilli powder, chilli sauce, coriander and an egg.

Another option is feta cheese and tomato kebabs, which are sprinkled with a little lemon zest and chopped rosemary before being placed on the gas BBQ and grilled for a minute or so on each side.

Ms Giles also suggested people "pile grated cheese, chopped tomatoes, a chopped chilli and chopped parsley onto one half of a flour tortilla. Fold over to make a half-moon, brush with oil and barbecue on each side for a couple of minutes."

The comments came after a survey by the Tony Ferguson Weightloss Programme and Boots found that 32 per cent of people in the UK eat more calories than usual at a BBQ.  ADNFCR-3488-ID-800028430-ADNFCR
