Inviting friends or family over for a cookout conveys an unspoken promise of meat, and dooms vegetarians or vegans to a meal of side dishes or fake meat products. The CHOW Test Kitchen put together five meat-free recipes for the grill that are satisfying and way more interesting than frozen veggie dogs. We used marinades, sauces, fresh herbs, grains, and cheeses like halloumi, fontina, and chèvre to make these easy mains filling and full of flavor.
