Alternatives for meat and Fish

Besides meats and fish on the BBQ, there are plenty of other delicious items that taste fantastic on the grill. Saus.Guru has put together a top 5 of plant-based products that are surprisingly tasty on the BBQ:

1. Artichokes: The BBQ imparts a unique smokey flavor to artichokes, perfectly complementing their savory and slightly bitter taste. Serve with our Bigger Than Mack or Bigger Than Mack Hot ‘N Spicy for a delightful treat.
2. Peaches: Slice ripe peaches into wedges and grill them briefly on the BBQ for a warm and juicy texture. Then, mix them with fresh lettuce, feta or burrata, and a dressing of balsamic vinegar and honey.
3. Bok choy: Grill bok choy until it’s crispy and lightly charred on the edges for a surprisingly tasty and healthy side dish.
4. Tempeh (soy): Tempeh is perfect for the BBQ, becoming crispy and golden brown. With the right marinade, it’s a delicious addition to your BBQ. Keep reading for a detailed explanation of how to prepare tempeh for the BBQ.
5. Green asparagus: Asparagus becomes tender and acquires a delightful smokey flavor on the BBQ, making them an elegant and tasty addition to any meal.

Of course, you can grill anything you like on the BBQ, including zucchini, (bell) peppers, corn, mushrooms, eggplant, onion rings, cabbages, sunchokes, beetroots etc. Want to know how to elevate the flavor of vegetables on your BBQ? Saus.Guru has the perfect method for that!

Grilling Vegetables

  1. Preparation: Start by selecting your favorite vegetables – think peppers, zucchinis, mushrooms, eggplants, and onions. Cut them into slices, cubes, or large pieces, depending on your preference and what best suits the dish you want to make.
  2. Seasoning and marinating: Drizzle the vegetables generously with olive oil and season them with salt, pepper, and any other herbs or spices you like. You can also opt for a marinade of lemon juice, garlic, and fresh herbs for extra flavor. Or try almost all our sauces as marinade, most of them are plant-based.
  3. Grilling: Place the vegetables on a preheated grill and let them roast until they are soft and lightly charred, turning them occasionally for even cooking. Depending on the thickness of the vegetables, this can take between 5 and 10 minutes.

Grilling Tempeh

  1. Preparation and marinating: Choose firm tempeh and cut it into slices or cubes. Then, marinate the tempeh in your favorite sauce or marinade. Popular options include Royal Umami, Champion’s Choice, or a spicy Mexican Habanero marinade.
  2. Grilling: Place the marinated tempeh on the grill and let them grill until they are golden brown and crispy on each side, usually about 5-7 minutes per side. Be careful when flipping to prevent the tempeh from falling apart.




Whether you opt for juicy grilled vegetables or crispy tempeh, these vegetarian options will surely steal the show at your next barbecue. Experiment with different herbs, sauces, and cooking methods to discover your own unique flavor combinations. So, bring out that BBQ and let your culinary creativity flow!
