Veggie Burgers Every Which Way, Second Edition: Fresh, Flavorful, and Healthy Plant-Based Burgers—Plus Toppings, Sides, Buns, and More

Veggie Burgers Every Which Way is an updated second edition of the classic veggie burger cookbook by Lukas Volger. Originally published in 2010, this reformat and re-release from The Experiment is due out 6th June 2023. It's 192 pages and will be available in hardcover and ebook formats. 

This is a very versatile and adaptable cooking guide. The author does a good job of showing how to substitute and arrange ingredients to choose vegan or vegetarian, as well as giving lots of good tips for adapting to make recipes wheat-/gluten-free. 

The recipes are arranged thematically by main base ingredient: basics/adaptations, bean/grain burgers, vegetable based burgers, tofu seitan tempeh TVP burgers, buns, sides (salads & fries), and condiments & toppings. Recipes are written with a description, headers including codes for vegan, gluten free, etc, ingredients in a bullet list, and step by step cooking directions. 

Ingredient measures are given in imperial (American) measurements with metric measures in parentheses (yay!). Roughly 2/3rds of the recipes are accompanied by color photos. The food is very attractively styled and appetizing. 

The author has also included an abbreviated bibliography/resources list, and an index.

Four stars. A good kitchen resource. The condiments chapter alone is full of versatile and tasty make-aheads to enhance more than just burgers.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
