Lots of Variety
I am not vegetarian or vegan but I do like a good veggie burger now and then so this is a cookbook that interests me. There are over 100 recipes for internationally inspired versions of veggie burgers, plus side dishes and salads, condiments, breads, and desserts to round out the meal.
I tried the sun-dried tomato and artichoke burger recipe because it was the one I could make with regular ingredients (like mushrooms, oats, and brown rice) with the exception of nutritional yeast which I chose not to use but the result was still tasty even though the burger sort of fell apart while cooking.
To make most of the recipes, one will need to have access to ingredients such as texturized vegetable protein (TVP), nutritional yeast, vital wheat gluten flour, tofu, and seitan, plus various flours made from grains other than wheat. These ingredients can be found at larger grocery stores and health food stores and although they were foreign to me, I'm guessing that commited vegans and vegetarians probably have them on hand as pantry staples.
Some of the recipes are wheat and gluten free, others are soy free, so those with allergies still have plenty of other recipes to choose from. A veggie burger will never taste like it's beef counterpart, but this cookbook does offer plenty of variety with interesting tastes and fresh ingredients. I think anyone following a vegan lifestyle will enjoy this cookbook, as would someone who wants to make the occasional vegetarian meal. The book has lots of color photos which is always a plus.
I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited nor was a positive review required.
