Vegetables cooking on the BBQ

In the United Kingdom, there's something special about cooking and dining outdoors, especially when the weather is cooperating. Whether you're in your garden, at a park, or by the seaside, embracing the joys of outdoor cooking can add a delightful twist to your culinary adventures. In this blog, we'll explore five random and delicious dishes to cook outside on a BBQ.

1. Campfire Pizza

Gather around a campfire or fire pit and unleash your inner pizzaiolo. Prepare pizza dough in advance or buy pre-made dough, then set up a pizza station with an array of toppings. Let everyone customize their pizzas and cook them over the open flame. The smoky flavour and crispy crust make campfire pizza a true outdoor treat.

2. BBQ Halloumi Skewers

Halloumi cheese is a star on the BBQ. Cut the halloumi into chunks, marinate them in olive oil, lemon juice, and your favourite herbs and spices, then thread them onto skewers. Grill the skewers until the halloumi is nicely charred and serve with a refreshing salad or tzatziki sauce.

3. Foil Packet Meals

Foil packet meals are a versatile and mess-free way to cook outdoors. Create individual foil packets filled with your choice of protein (chicken, fish, or even tofu), vegetables, herbs, and seasonings. Seal them tightly and cook them on the BBQ or over the campfire. The ingredients steam and infuse with flavours, resulting in a delicious one-packet meal.

4. Grilled Vegetable Platter

Take advantage of the UK's seasonal produce by grilling a colourful assortment of vegetables. Slice zucchini, bell peppers, eggplant, and mushrooms, then brush them with olive oil and sprinkle with herbs and salt. Grill until tender and slightly charred. Arrange the grilled veggies on a platter, drizzle with balsamic glaze, and garnish with fresh herbs for a vibrant and healthy side dish.

5. Seafood Boil

For a seafood feast with a coastal flair, organise a seafood boil in your outdoor space. In a large pot, combine prawns, mussels, clams, corn on the cob, and potatoes. Add Old Bay seasoning, lemon slices, and a generous amount of butter. Cook the ingredients together until the seafood is cooked through and the flavours meld into a delectable medley. Serve the boil on a communal table lined with newspapers for a relaxed and enjoyable meal.
