This is not a book for those with soy and gluten sensitivities.

So far I've made the BLT avocado burgers, bacon cheeseburgers (wow!), bacon bits, BBQ sauce, and rustica buns.

We've had this cookbook for a couple of weeks now and I've liked every recipe I've tried so far.

Who would have believed that anyone could think of so many variations on the basic burger? The fact that they're all vegan is mind boggling. If you're after a good solid "meaty" burger, there are plenty of options here, but this book is about so much more than that. There are burgers based on flavours from all over the planet, as well as burgers for breakfast, special occasions and even dessert. They all have different texture - some are best served in a bun, some with rice, some with chips and some with good old vegetables. There's a variety of cooking methods too, they aren't all grilled or fried, and soy and wheat free options are clearly labelled. There's a chapter on sides such as macaroni salads, potato salad and slaw, and a chapter on breads and buns. I've tried a large amount from this book and I'm sure you'll love it as much as I do. Particular favourites? The stuffed burgers, the BLT burger, the Sunday griller and the noodle kugel burger. The fiesta mac salad is my favourite macaroni salad ever, too.

Format: Paperback
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.

I've had this book for about two weeks and have tried three burgers-- Jamaican Jerk (really good flavor, but I couldn't get the right texture), Chipotle Sweet Potato (amazing, this is my favorite so far) and Garlicky Ranch Potato (so simple). Joni gives some really good tips in the intro for grilling, baking and frying the burgers. I also like that each recipe give either a suggested side, condiment or bun.

There is a chapter for every major cuisine, including a huge American-inspired chapter. So far, I have been able to pick a burger to make without buying too many extra ingredients, since there are so many options.

As far as visual appeal, the book is heavy for a paperback and full of pictures. It's definitely worth the price.

I'm excited to have this book going into summer grilling season, and look forward to trying all 101 burgers!

I will start off to say that I absolutely love this book. It is creative and the recipes I've tried so far are delicious (but I did have to make modifications to spice level). I learned to cook as a child and have cooked ever since. I won't say I'm an expert at cooking but I'm a decent cook. Looking at the recipes, I can definitely tell that there is an overabundance of spice so I cut down the spice in the recipes. For some of the recipes, I'm amazed at the amount of various spices each recipe has and even with cutting down the spice, it still feels like the recipes are overly spiced. I'm not even talking about spicy hot, just spice - paprika, herbs, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, etc.

So one caveat I'd say for anyone making this book is cut the amount of spice by a quarter, then add to flavor as you like. I think the fact that the spicing is so off that it is a detriment to the cookbook as many people may find this out the hard way.

I absolutely LOVE this author for coming up with this cookbook! The recipes are so creative and varied, and she really thinks outside the box with each one. Another reviewer wrote that it is not really about trying to find a meat replacement burger (although there are some for that), it's about discovering amazing new recipes using all kinds of different ingredients in ways that kind of redefine (or at least stretch the definition) of "the burger".

The most difficult part is really deciding which burger to make first. Every page I flip through has such a delicious recipe, it's hard to make a decision. So far I've made the BLT avocado burgers, bacon cheeseburgers (wow!), bacon bits, BBQ sauce, and rustica buns. They all came out amazing (BBQ sauce - yum!) though I did have trouble getting my buns to rise.

Features I especially appreciated:

1. Nice layout, lots of big colorful pictures.
2. Very imaginative recipes, well organized by region or other common ground.
3. Recipes are included so that every part of the meal can be made from scratch, including seitan, bacon bits, sauces, and buns.
4. The burgers can be frozen for later use.
5. There's a dessert section in the back!

Overall, a brilliant idea and a well put together cookbook! I highly recommend it!
