There’s a common misconception that veg doesn’t have a real place on the barbie. When in fact, grilled vegetables can be some of the tastiest and most vibrant summer bites out there.
Scrap the meaty feast and get your veg on with inspiration from some of our fully-fledged foodies from the People of Balance. Show your guests how it’s done the balanced way, with everything from Miso Aubergine, to Harissa Cauliflower Steaks and Sri-Lankan-Inspired Pulled BBQ Jackfruit.
