This is the best way to prepare a vegetarian barbecue in summer.

If you want to be the next “barbecue master” this summer, a good organization is essential: appetizers, cold drinks, a good location and quality food are the strong points to make everyone want to repeat the following year.

Here we bring you a series of tips to make your barbecue more eco-friendly and successful wherever you are. Take note!

All eco-friendly

It may seem like an impossible task for everything related to a barbecue to be environmentally friendly. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Alternatives to coal

When it comes to lighting a fire, wood has always been the best ally, an element that burns very well and is totally natural. If possible, avoid kerosene at all costs, it can cause fires more easily if you are careless and, if abused, it is harmful to your health and the environment. Other options that are gaining weight in recent years are the tablets made with sawdust and vegetable oils, which are ready to cook in 15 minutes. 100% natural and ecological.

Eco Crockery

On these occasions, plastic or aluminum tableware is often used for its convenience, but these are the least sustainable products that can be used. The use of ceramic or wooden plates and of
bamboo cutlery
are a much more eco-friendly alternative, can be easily purchased and can be used on any occasion you want.

How to cook vegetables

Meat has always been the protagonist in barbecues, but today we are going to break a lance in favor of vegetables and the great potential they have on the grill.

It is well known that they are a great source of fiber, vitamins and antioxidants, especially peppers, eggplants, potatoes, zucchini and tofu, the great allies of the barbecue. When preparing them, the best way is to cut them into slices and place them with a certain distance between them on the rack. If, on the other hand, you want to prepare them whole, wrapping them well in aluminum foil – it is 100% recyclable, always in the yellow container – so that they cook and do not burn is the best option.

Vegan side dishes

When accompanying the main course of vegetables, a few plates of tomato salad or lettuce are options that give a fresher contrast to the intense flavor of the grill. If you prefer to introduce another type of side dish that makes more of an impact, a legume or whole-grain pasta salad with a slightly spicy touch will make the mix of flavors not easily forgotten.

Preparing homemade hummus or guacamole as an appetizer along with some corn tortillas will have your guests drooling before you even show them the main vegetable course.

What to do when the barbecue is over?

This is a very common question, but don’t worry, there are two basic points to follow depending on where you are:

  1. If you have barbecued at home, wait until the ashes are completely extinguished to collect them and dispose of them in an organic waste container. Be
    eco-friendly at home
    is a lifestyle based on the three R‘s: Reduce, Reuse y Recycle. Help the environment and you are collaborating in a good cause.
  2. If we are in the middle of nature, we can spread the ashes on the grass, the remains that they produce are a 100% natural fertilizer. 100% natural.


This summer it’s time to get together with family and friends and enjoy some good times together.
