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.
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!
My personal favorites are the Sweet Potato Chipotle Burger and the Enchilada Burger. INCREDIBLY GOOD. There is no going back to nasty frozen food section veggie burgers after you get used to these homemade ones.
PS for anyone who is fine with soy but avoids TVP because of how heavily processed and GMO-laden it is, you can make your own organic "TVP" by freezing organic extra-firm tofu for 24-48 hours, then drying it out in the oven at a low temperature or in a dehydrator. Here is a website that explains in a little more detail:[...]. I only eat organic, non-GMO foods, so I was delighted to find that this homemade TVP works perfectly for recipes in this cookbook. One package of tofu ends up yielding about 1 cup of TVP.
EDIT: I guess Amazon doesn't allow you to post links, or I just don't know how to yet. To find out how to make your own organic tvp, google "How to Make Textured Vegetable (TVP) Vegetarian Meat Substitute" and look for the squidoo link.
