Being a vegetarian at a typical meat-centric backyard grilling party can be an awfully lonely and alienating experience. Even if you're lucky enough to have friends who are willing to "accommodate" you and grill up a few portobello mushroom burgers, despite their assurances to the contrary (e.g., "We just really like mushrooms on our burgers anyway"), you know that they're going out of their way for you. And maybe you don't want to be "that kind of vegetarian." At worst, however, you may just go home hungry. And that's the worst feeling of all.

Plus, depending on your prior relationship with meat (assuming you had one), the whole affair might just amount to torture. If you used to like eating meat, but gave it up for ethical or health reasons, you might just find your mouth watering uncontrollably at the nearly mind-controlling aromas issuing forth from the grill. And if you never liked meat at all, you may just be holding your nose for the sake of social graces.
So why not throw your own party and invite all your carnivore friends over? With these wonderful recipes to choose from, it's just about guaranteed that you'll be able to mix and match appetizers, mains, sides, and desserts into a customized menu that will appeal to all your guests. Who knows? Maybe some of them will switch over. The benefits of a vegetarian diet, according to Vandana Sheth, R.D., CDE, registered dietitian, and representative for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, include a decreased risk for heart disease, diabetes, and some types of cancer.
And carnivores — before you click off and find something else to read, we'd like to tell you the following: This menu contains real food. There isn't any Tofurkey, xanthan gum, or weird sugar substitute to be found anywhere in this roundup.

When figuring out the best things to cook on the grill, it seems like there’s only one right answer: meat. Whether it’s burgers, hot dogs, chicken, shrimp or steak, summertime cooking frequently leaves vegetarians — or people just trying to incorporate more veggies into their diet — out of the conversation. But vegetable and plant-based grilling recipes are actually just as good (if not better) than ribs and BBQ chicken. These vegetarian-friendly grilling recipes will give summer barbecue a new meaning for carnivores and vegetarians alike.
Veggies & Appetizers
13. Mexican Street Corn Grilled Polenta Bites (Snixy Kitchen) Like Halloumi, polenta is something you'll find on many vegetarian grills. When grilling polenta, be careful it doesn't go for too long, as it can dry out. This recipe offsets that issue with a dollop of queso fresco and greek yogurt.
14. Grilled Baby Bok Choy with Miso Butter (Food 52) You are going to see a lot of cauliflower steaks on grills this summer. This is a great alternative, from Laura B. Russell's book Brassicas, something unexpected to put on the grill with an even more interesting miso butter dressing.
15. Grilled Avocados with Spiced Chickpeas (Bijoux and Bits) Any excuse to include avocado! This looks like a great combination, Catherine calls for a smear of yogurt, but mentions tahini as a vegan alternative that I'll probably opt for.
16. Jamaican Jerk Grilled Eggplant (Minimalist Baker) Bring your pastry brush! Using tamari or coconut aminos and maple syrup among other ingredients, there's a lot of flavor in this one.
17. Sambal and Sesame Dressed Grilled Green Beans (Olives for Dinner) Another creative, beautiful idea from Erin of Olives for Dinner. Sesame seeds are a great compliment to grilled flavors that aren't used enough.
