Organic meats, fresh cuts, spices, sauces and marinades can all be used to make your BBQ food taste great.

Today, as promised, we have so healthy options that will impress your guests, and your taste buds.

Mushroom burgers

2 large mushrooms
2 cloves of garlic
2 sprigs of parsley
35g room temperature butter
Burger buns or pitta
A mixed salad

Peel and crush the garlic then mix with parsley leaves and the softened butter.
Clean the mushrooms and fill them with the butter mixture.
Wrap the parcels in tin foil and bake place on the BBQ until soft.
Place the cooked mushrooms in the bread and server with lemon juice, pesto and a mixed salad.

BBQ baby potatoes

750g of organic baby potatoes
A generous drizzle of olive oil
Mini corn on the cobs

Put the potatoes in a large saucepan of cold water and bring to the boil, then cook until tender (usually around five minutes). Drain and transfer to a large sheet of foil, then coat in oil and season well. Wrap the potatoes in the foil and create into parcels. Cook the parcels on the BBQ for 10 minutes and enjoy the potatoes with butter and corn on the cob.

Creamy coleslaw

You just can’t have a BBQ without coleslaw. This creamy delicious recipe is easy to make and goes with burgers, fish, kebabs and chicken. For this dish, you will need:

½ a white cabbage, trimmed and shredded
1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
4 organic carrots, peeled and grated
A handful of raisins
A grated apple
4 tablespoons of mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon of mustard
Salt and black pepper

Put the mayonnaise, lemon juice and mustard in a mixing bowl, season and mix well. Add the cabbage, onion, apple, raisins and carrots, and stir well. Put in the fridge for two hours before serving and stir again to ensure all the mix is coated in the dressing.

BBQ bananas

The great thing about BBQs is that they aren’t just for creating savory dishes. To finish your BBQ on a high, how about smoky bananas with ice cream? For this you will need:

1 banana per person
Lemon juice
Dark brown soft sugar
Ground cinnamon
Vanilla ice cream to serve

Halve the bananas lengthwise, then widthwise and then sprinkle with lemon juice. Mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon then roll the banana in the mixture until completely coated. Wrap the bananas in foil, place in the coals and cook for around ten minutes. Serve with ice cream and watch the sun go down.

Have a very happy BBQ season and let us know your favourite recipes.
