Review

“Authoritative.” —Melissa Clark,The New York Times
(Melissa Clark)

“Vegans and vegetarians (and others eating meatless) often resort to cooking frozen veggie burgers out of a box . . . [with Veggie Burgers Every Which Way], you can whip up the real deal: great-tasting colorful homemade variations with fresh produce, whole grains, beans, rice, bread crumbs, spices, and herbs. They will be as good as the ingredients that go into them . . . Appealing topping, side, dressing and bun options are included, too.”
Los Angeles Daily News
(Los Angeles Daily News)

“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.”
The Oregonian
(The Oregonian)

“Volger’s excellent new book, Veggie Burgers Every Which Way, should not be thought of as just for vegetarians . . . it is the variety and creativity of the recipes that makes this new cookbook stand out. Recipes such as his Tuscan White Bean Burger . . . are sure to get just about any carnivore’s mouth watering.”
CBC News
(CBC News)

“Who knew shredded carrots or quinoa could be so deliciously molded into a pattie? And satisfy a dyed-in-the-wool carnivore.”
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
(Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

“This is a small volume with a big mission: to up the flavor profile of this particular vegetarian genre.”
Washington Post
(Washington Post)

“Lukas Volger . . . elevates the vegetarian burger to its rightful status as real food.”
—Montreal Gazette
(Montreal Gazette)

“The world of burgers has just grown bigger, fresher, more colorful, and deliciously diverse thanks to Lukas Volger’s back-to-basics approach to the veggie burger. Summer barbecues may never look the same again!”
Cathy Erway, author of The Art of Eating In and the blog NotEatingOutinNY
(Cathy Erway)

“This is a terrific book! I’ve never been a fan of veggie burgers—neither the word ‘veggie’ nor the dry little disks with their strange little flavors. But Lukas Volger has just the right idea: Make real food with real flavor—and burgers that go far beyond any microwaveable snack. 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.”
Deborah Madison, author of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone and Vegetarian Suppers from Deborah Madison’s Kitchen
(Deborah Madison)

“Lukas Volger’s burgers are made with real food—fresh produce, whole grains and beans, fresh herbs and spices—combined with imagination and great taste. This appealing book is the best collection of vegetarian burgers I’ve ever seen, a refreshing departure from the over-processed veggie burgers of yore.”
Martha Rose Shulman, author of Recipes for Health, online at The New York Times, and of Mediterranean Harvest
(Martha Rose Shulman)

“This is the book we have been waiting for, and perhaps you have too? A vegetarian and vegan cookbook that actually adds something to our groaning kitchen bookshelf. . . . The book is simply designed and very easy to follow. The mouth-watering photographs leave no doubt that great-tasting veggie burgers can look spectacular. Volger elevates the vegetarian burger to its rightful status as real, imaginative and fun food. . . . 10 out 10! Buntastic!”

Let's face it - those frozen, boxed veggie burgers really aren't very good. They're filled with chemicals, taste bland and artificial, and have that lovely dry, cardboard texture. Fortunately, delicious and nutritious veggie burgers are easy to make at home, and Lukas Volger shows us how in his new book, Veggie Burgers Every Which Way.

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.

Veggie Burgers Every Which Way is a fantastic book. It is well-written, which makes the recipes a breeze to prepare, the flavor combinations are dynamic and interesting, and most importantly everything I've made from this book tastes positively delicious. My favorite recipes so far are the Pub-Grub Burger, The Tuscan White Bean Burger, the Tortilla-Crusted Stuffed Portobello Burgers, the Pretzel Rolls, the Black Olive and Roasted Potato Salad with Arugula, and the Quick Pickles.

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.

I am an unabashed and unashamed meat-eater. I bought this book because a good friend and frequent guest is a vegetarian and I thought "wouldn't it be nice to offer him something beyond double portions of the sides at our summer dinners..."but this book really appeals to me! I've marked at least a dozen recipes (corn burgers with sun dried tomatoes and goat cheese...how could that be anything but SPECTACULAR?) and some sides as well ( frizzled shallots has to happen TODAY )Best of all- the ingredients are grocery store available -- no special trips to strange smelling health food stores. This book would make the perfect house gift for summer weekends...

I really enjoy this book. I've had it for four months now, and have tried a number of recipes with every one of them turning out great. I like that there is a wide variety of recipes provided, but that variety is balanced so that it doesn't become overwhelming or redundant (like when cookbooks have 2 or 4 recipes for whole wheat buns or falafel and you're left wondering what the difference is or which one is better). I appreciate that Volger provides suggestions for appropriate buns, condiments, and sides to go with many of the burgers, and that there is an appealing, glossy photo of each recipe. I also think it's great that he tried to provide options for Vegans and people who want or need gluten-free recipes. Still, this is neither a vegan or gluten-free cookbook - only 15 of the 32 burger recipes are vegan, and only 10 of the 32 burgers are gluten free.

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).

I was intrigued by this title, and it has a very reasonable price, so I ordered a copy. Not knowing the author or the publishing company, or having heard anything about the book, other than having it come up on an amazon random suggestion, I was wary. Well, it appeared in the mail, and I was immediately intrigued by many of the recipes. I paged through and wanted to immediately make almost all the burgers. I am sitting at my desk to an extraordinary lunch right now of a baked quinoa and spinach burger. [I topped it with melted cheddar.]

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.
