Hi all,

As Summer is threatening to present us with a day or two of decent weather over the next couple of months, we're going to be shooting a BBQ themed episode of Happy Food and would be keen to find out any ideas people might have for what they'd like to see.

Are you happy with a Portobello mushroom on a roll or would you prefer a juicy vegan burger to rival those you see on the more 'traditional' BBQs?

Let us know your wants, needs, ideas and desires and regale us with your BBQ based tales and fails! We promise not to steal your recipes and you might find yourself grilling something you've always wanted to grill without ever having known how!

Our Game of Thrones episode is currently available on our website (link in my signature)- featuring hearty winter veg stew served in our home-made vegan bread trenchers and some lovely, light Dornish lemon cakes topped with fresh, vegan lemon curd- because here in the UK, although it may currently be Summer, Winter is always coming...

:)

I'm looking forward to this episode - we are about to reinstate our BBQ to give us more outdoor cooking options and I'm not really sure what to cook on it other than grilled veg. I've only recently had my first ever portobello mushroom burger, which I loved, but would be interested to see a different sort of burger than can actually hold up to being BBQ-d, most that I've made need very careful handling.

Agreed. We'll probably be looking at the vegan burger option as one of the featured recipes as this issue seems to come up quite often. Obviously, BBQ'd veggies are all well and good, being absolutely delicious and all, but a burger in a bun is just so versatile! Adding sauces and salads is half the fun!

I'm interested in grilled items that don't go in a bun - burgers and hot dogs are all well and good but I feel like I go into bread overload in the summer for this reason. Something to grill that goes with potato salad and the other usual sides would be nice.

Good call, skewers make all kinds of things manageable on the grill.

Do things on a stick.

So it seems like there is a call for both. A good burger and some kind of skewered option, like a kebab. And you're mention of sides/salads has me thinking it might be nice to throw in a few ideas for those as well!

Fantastic suggestions, thank you!
