Seeking the burger

In every great fantasy, there is a quest.

In my fantasy, that quest is for the tastiest vegetarian burger ever conceived. I do accept that I may never hold such a grail in my hands (or take a bite out of it) but that’s no reason not to saddle up and sally forth.

Why a burger, though?

Well, when I stopped eating animals – a direct result of researching and writing MEAT – I did still miss certain textures and flavours. I love food immensely and I enjoy cooking even more now than I when I ate meat. I also firmly believe that there is a meatless alternative that will not simply substitute the burger experience but better it.

So if you have such a recipe and wish to share it or if you’ve heard a rumour of a venue where such a delicacy is served, this is the place to whisper your secret.

I’ll do the same!

  1. Have you tried any vegie burgers in Australia? If not, please do. Here are my hot tips:

    For a burger that has a very similar (and in my optinion, superior) taste/texture to meat, Lord of the Fries is a MUST ( http://www.lordofthefries.com.au/ )
    All their food is vegetarian. They have beef and chicken burgers – amazing.

    For a vegie burger that’s not mock meat, try Grill’d – 3 amazing vego burger options (http://www.grilld.com.au/ )

    If you’re in Adelaide, as I am, the 2 above chains aren’t available so your best bet is Veggie Velo – a little French guy called Manu that rides a little cart around the city and sells amazing burgers, consisting of things like lentils, quinoa, haloumi etc

    • Oh, Flora! How can you tell me these things when I couldn’t be farther from Australia without being in space?!

      I am now on a mission to find such things here or invent a reason (other than feeling a bit peckish) to get myself over to Australia for some serious veggie burger action. Thank you so much for these tips – you’re a star!
