This is a terrific book! I’ve never been a fan of veggie burgersneither the word veggie’ nor the dry little disks with their strange little flavors.

There’s a lot to like in Veggie Burgers Every Which Way, including some very appealing sides, dressings, and, what else? Buns! I’m headed to my kitchen right now.”

One of Volger’s best veggie burgers combines a variety of mushrooms and barley, combining foresty and nutty flavors you’d find in a wintertime wild mushroom soup . . . Try going back to eating one of those frozen soy burgers after that.”

Volger's book provides thirty unique veggie burger recipes, and the variety of styles ensures that there is something for every palette. All of the recipes are clearly-written and easy to follow, and many include directions for how busy cooks can prepare portions of the recipe ahead of time. Best of all, many of the recipes take thirty minutes or less of prep and cook time! Also included is a section on freezing your veggie burger mix for later use and the proper storage method for making your leftovers last, especially convenient for hectic schedules and small families.
Most of the recipes call for fresh ingredients readily available at any major supermarket. Those few ingredients that are less standard can be found in health food stores or asian markets, which most cities now have. The emphasis on fresh ingredients makes these burgers both more flavorful and more healthy than the alternatives provided in the (very few) other veggie burger cook books out there. More than half of the recipes are also vegan or gluten-free, and many others are easily modified for specialized diets.
The introduction to Veggie Burgers Every Which Way outlines the typical ingredients found in veggie burgers and the most common basic cooking methods for each, making this book easily accessible to fledgling cooks.Read more ›
Veggie Burgers Every Which Way is beautifully composed. It is clear from the mouthwatering recipes, the playful design/layout, the thoughtful writing, and the elegant photography that this was a labor of love. I'm looking forward to whatever Mr. Volger has next up his sleeve.
My only real complaints with Veggie Burgers Every Which Way is that a number of the recipes are a bit "fussy" in the preparation - that is requiring lots of steps. For example, many recipes require 1/2 or 1 cup of multiple ingredients be cooked separately before they're all mixed together in a bowl or food processor. I hate doing dishes, so occasionally I wish the recipes were a little more streamlined. You can't argue with the results, though, and it could be a good way to use leftovers if you plan ahead. Also, many of the burgers require pan-frying and then finishing the cooking in the oven, an extra step which can be annoying on a busy day when you just want to get supper on the table. That said, the recipes all have reasonably accurate prep and cooking times listed, so you know ahead of time if you're getting into a time consuming recipe (suggested times range from 20 minutes to 2 hours).Read more ›
Let's face it. Veggie patties can be extraordinarily boring, but I've been striving to eat less meat at lunchtime and have been buying the pre-packaged frozen selections. This book is fantastic for making your very own, from-scratch burgers.
The variety is awesome! Lentils, beans, mushrooms, quinoa, spinach, veggies. Now I could eat veggie burgers every day and not feel like I'm eating the same old thing.
Seriously, this quinoa/spinach burger is so delicious. I'm going to stop writing this review and enjoy my lunch. Buy this book. It's awesome.
