You can of course cook almost anything on a barbecue, suggestion that it is a cooking method only suitable for meat is nonsense. It does not matter whether you're a vegetarian or meat-eater you must try this ratatouille! It is fantastic alone but even better with a wheat beer. And because it's so versatile, you can serve it as the main event or as a side dish.

Veggie BBQ recipe: ingredients

For this recipe you will need a cast iron pan that is suitable for grilling. 

Preparation time: 15 minutesGrilling time: 55 minutes 

  • Aubergine
  • Beef tomatoes
  • Yellow, green, or both, courgettes
  • Onions
  • Can of chopped tomatoes
  • Garlic
  • Olive oil

Grilled vegetables: it's that easy

1. Prepare the grill and you

Whilst enjoying a beer, heat your barbecue to 150 degrees C.

2. Prepare the vegetables

Cut an aubergine, tomato, and your courgette into equally large, thick slices.

Cut an onion into pieces and chop the cloves of garlic.

3. Prepare the pan

Drizzle some olive oil in the pan and add the onion and garlic.  Fry until the onions are soft, brown, and caramelised.

Add the chopped tomatoes and let it cook through for a few minutes. Add the chopped aubergine and courgette.

Heat it up a little and then add a dash of (not too much!) balsamic vinegar, a few leaves of fresh basil plus some salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste. You want a ratio of 4 parts salt, 2 parts garlic powder, 1 part pepper.

 4.  Off to the grill

Cover the pan with aluminium foil and cook at a temperature of 150 degrees Celsius. Remove the foil from the pan after about 45 minutes and cook for another 10 minutes.

Perfect with grilled vegetables: a wheat beer

Take this opportunity to drink some nice beer. You cannot rush barbecuing, sit back, enjoy your beer whilst it cooks.

Grilled vegetables almost taste better with a delicious wheat beer. Try this recipe with And Union Wednesday Wheat, for example . And Union has given this traditional German wheat a personal touch. A refreshing beer with many fruity aromas awaits you. Edelweiss Hefetrüb too tastes great with grilled vegetables. This beer has a refreshing and fruity taste. Perfect!

Try Brand Weizen or Texels Skuumkoppe. Or an alternative is dark wheat beer, for example Paulaner Hefeweizen Dunkel. The typical wheat aromas of banana and clove in combination with the bread crust and caramel aromas of the dark malt just go perfectly with grilled vegetables! If you don't want to forego beer, but alcohol, then our alcohol-free recommendations are Erdinger Alcohol vrij and Brand Weizen 0.0.
