I really struggle to find interesting Vegetarian BBQ ideas and recipes. Thats why I love there Feta and Sweet Potato Burgers so much

I enjoy the occasional hotdog, but other than that I much prefer ideas for Vegetarian BBQ food than meat based recipes when it comes to planning an Alfresco feast. I just feel it mixes things up a little.

Summer for me is all about BBQs. Friends, food, cocktails and laughter. It doesn’t get better than that.

These Feta and Sweet Potato Burgers are my ‘go to’ recipe when I run out of ideas for vegetarian BBQ food. They are so moist and tasty. The sweetness of the potato combined with the earthy flavor of the coriander make for a very tasty pattie that even meat lovers will adore.

When it comes to BBQs there is always the debate about gas v’s charcoal.  We have owned both and they each have their merits, although I think the gas BBQ designs are always better than their charcoal counterparts.

Feta and Sweet Potato Burgers

Ingredients (makes 6 medium-sized feta and sweet potato burgers)

  • 150g oats

    This sounds wonderful – I’ll use any excuse to use sweet potatoes! Love them!!
    My favorite thing to BBQ is definitely vegetables! I recently posted a recipe for recipe that uses some of my favorite grilling vegetables – eggplant, onion and squash.
