When I stumbled upon Lukas Volger’s Veggie Burger Madness blog, I knew I had met a kindred spirit.
Lukas has been making and eating veggie burgers since he was a teenager, and he’s turned this passion and experience into a wonderful recipe book called Veggie Burgers Every Which Way.
What I love about Lukas’s approach is that his recipes don’t try to imitate meat, but instead, accentuate the veggies with which the burgers are made. His book comes with over thirty recipes for burgers, buns, toppings and sides, over half of which are vegan and/or gluten free.
I spoke with Lukas last month about vegan burgers, the elusive eggless binder, topping ideas and my own quest for the ultimate veggie burger. Lukas was kind enough to share some fantastic tips on making ace veggie burgers, plus a recipe for Mushroom Barley Burgers that are out of this world.
