Vegetable Recipes

This is a selection of recipes designed to be cooked on the Big Green Egg, where vegetables are the star of the show. Some of our all time favourite recipes are vegetarian.  These recipes showcase the versatility of the Big Green Egg and illustrate that BBQ is not all about meat.

The vegetable recipe section is currently the biggest range in our recipe library. From side dishes, snacks and main courses, we’ve got you covered if you’re looking for some inspiration to cook vegetables or provide a vegetarian option cooked on your Big Green Egg.

Some of the recipes could also be made vegan by substituting some ingredients.
