The versatility of this dish is what makes it such a dream. All you need is the pepper base and the rest you can make up as you go along. They will barbecue very quickly and can be filled with anything from cheeses to salad ingredients, dressed up or seasoned down.

Filled avoado 

Avocado can’t go wrong but it can go extra right. After removing the stone from the avocado, cook the avocado very lightly on the bbq for just a few seconds. Fill with some hummus or tahini, add a sprinkling of herbs or swap these ingredients for something else you love to eat.

BBQ pineapple 

Sweet treats need not go amiss at a barbecue and you don’t need lashings of cream or dairy to make it tasty. Try putting some round slices of pineapple on the bbq and combine with some organic coconut yoghurt that is dairy free and all natural. The combination of flavours is delicious and perfectly refined when topped with some chopped nuts.


Tomato salad 

The most versatile salad in the world, you can create an endless amount of flavours if you wanted. Mix varieties of tomatoes to begin with before choosing between oils, dips, dressing and herbs depending on what you fancy. For extra freshness add in some cucumber and really get those mouths watering


Zucchini nachos 

Every BBQ needs something to pick at but that doesn’t mean you need to worry about vegetarian cocktail sausages. Try some Zucchini nachos instead. They are crispy like the real treat but made from veg and can be topped with tomatos, avocado, onions and various beans.
