The sun has finally decided to appear, with temperatures set to be the hottest we've seen since (forever) last August in much of the UK.

Grilled aubergines with grated 'mozzarella'

It's a fact of life that actual mozzarella or halloumi cannot be vegan, but we reckon this vegan imitation is not bad at all, the problem sometimes is the lack of flavour, so you're definitely best off barbecuing this recipe from Violife.

Shelina Permaloo
Smoked garlic has a milder flavour than raw garlic and therefore adds a beautiful BBQ-style taste to a dish. Pair this with griddled sweet potatoes to create a charred caramel flavour.

Easy Grillable Veggie Burgers

Minimalist Baker
No summer barbecue is complete without a juicy burger. Veggie burgers are usually hard to grill due to their fragile texture but this recipe requires just 10 ingredients and the rice is what holds it together. You get that perfect 'char' and blackening on the grill, not to mention that each burger has nearly 14 grams of protein!
