Listen now to hear how I make have a bbq a doddle. I’ll cover:
keep prep easy and limit the number items that you make
make it easy for people to help themselves to the food
choose just a couple of mains.
shop bought it fine
if making it yourself then choose low prep meat or fish and a marinade
the veg option should be a course in its own right – swap meat for tofu (tofoo is my favourite brand), veg sausages and burgers, bean burgers, halloumi or paneer
make as easy as poss, use a processor – salsa and coleslaw are great for this
potato and pasta salad are good make-ahead options
corn on the cob, roasted veg, portobello mushrooms
warm bread on the coals, it makes it taste like fresh bread
buns – brioche are all the rage at the moment
other options include rice (great with kebabs), cous cous, bugler wheat and potato – baked or wedges.
make your own if you like or buy it:
options include: bbq sauce, peri peri, chilli sauce, ketchup, mayo, yogurt with herbs and other flavours mixed in, mustard
crudités – use veg that requires very little prep e.g. baby vegetable, sugar snaps, veg that is easy to chop e.g. cucumber and peppers
choose desserts that don’t require a lot of effort to serve up e.g.
homemade ice lollies
juice and water
milk and chocolate/strawberry/rose syrup, milkshake powder?
milk and fruit
grilled fruit – sliced pineapple or peaches charred on the bbq
punch – both non alcoholic and alcoholic
glass identifiers (permeant marker for disposable glasses, stem rings for wine glasses, liquid chalk markers for glasses
