Here at Pet Let, we know how important it is for holiday makers to be able to kick back and relax and enjoy a BBQ on the deck or balcony of their holiday home. As far as Aussie pastimes go, firing up the barbie is up there with footy, thongs and a day at the beach; which is why we provide one at every holiday home. The reason we love BBQs so much – other than watching someone else do the cooking – is because they’re a chance to chill out with friends and family in the great outdoors and eat with our fingers!

However, you may have noticed that the humble backyard BBQ featuring singed snags, incinerated slabs of meat and charcoal chops are now starting to include more vegetables than ever before. Every vegetable under the sun can be thrown on the BBQ, even some fruit! Patties filled with lentils, chickpeas, quinoa, nuts and an array of herbs and spices are also making their way onto the hotplates of Australia. Mushrooms are definitely becoming a favourite and if you’re a cheese lover like me, nothing beats grilled halloumi! Make your next BBQ a much healthier (and much prettier!) one and ‘throw another vegie on the barbie!’

Here are seven easy, hassle free vegetarian BBQ ideas you may want to try on your next holiday.
