Vegetables are best done hot and fast. Sweet corn with a swipe of butter then wrapped in foil is one of the things I am looking forward to this summer. Zucchini sliced in half is one of my wife's favorites. Mushrooms are great, my oldest daughter loves them. Kabobs are a good way to go, something like onion, bell pepper, mushrooms and zucchini. By hot and fast, 2-3 minutes per side. Sweet corn takes a bit longer. Also red potatoes are good off the grill. And green beans and asparagus with a little bit of fresh lemon.

Kebabs sound good, I'll have to start skewering Em up now, and I really want to go back to sleep! I agree with Bob, bbq means meat. at the same time, 800 potential customers, I can't piss these people off, even though they kinda screwed me over on this already. The fact is, I couldn't serve 800 people in one lunch service if I wanted to, why wouldn't they just get a second vendor that serves Asian, or Indian, or vagitarian food? Maybe they think it's funny to try to throw me a "Speed bump challenge" like that food truck race reality show. Now I'm up at 4 am, and I have a long day ahead of me, but I can do it...I think!

A little late but:

These are good grilled vege mains...

Stuffed Portobella mushroom caps - easy to do ahead and grill on site
Grilled eggplant slabs topped with a slice of tomato and some mozzarella
Packet cooked veggie mix
Tofu slabs marinated in sriracha, wine and garlic, grilled and served on some soba noodles rice or on a bun (burger style)

Well, despite the veggie hiccup, we had a great day! It turns out that Hindu folks do eat chicken. Lots of chicken! I didn't really sell much of the jap mac n cheese or kebabs until after we ran out of the chicken, had I known, I would have cooked a lot more, as that is our highest profit item. But we will definitely be prepared, the next time we go there, and since we didn't sell many Grilled kebabs, I had a very healthy lunch today! Btw, Janet all those except the tofu sound really delicious! I've done a similar "eggplant sammitch" except with cream cheese instead of mozzarella, and we do "hobo pack" foil package peppers and onions everyday to top our smoked sausages. It sets em off, and makes em look pretty too!

I think it is the Hindu who consider the cow to be sacred, which is primarily based in India.

Whats wrong with Tofu? It is very nourishing, takes the taste of whatever it is cooked with, and has a texture similar to diced chicken. I eat it all the time, and it is good for you..... :P

When I was a kid I worked at a Chinese restaurant, tofu was the only thing they'd let me eat for free. It got old quick. I promised myself that someday I'd own my own restaurant and I'd never eat tofu again!
