Gob-Smacked Sticky Tofu Burgers

This recipe is a gift to you from my book ‘Mouthwatering Vegan’ (published by Random House 2013), available from Amazon US or Amazon UK along with most other major online & retail booksellers.   From the point of view of taste – this has got to be one of the tastiest burgers I have ever had. I am not going to say much about it because I’m gob-smacked at the result. It’s spicy, a little […]

Mouthwatering Middle Eastern Style Chickpea Burgers

These are inspired by the many types of Moroccan patties, fritters, and burgers I have seen over the years.  The rich taste and colours of Middle Eastern dishes just blows me away.  I have created these with all these flavours and colours in mind, and heart. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did.  They’re very easy to make, which is a great bonus !  I served mine in pitta bread, with my […]

Vegan Sloppy Joes

I tried Sloppy Joes once in the US, and several times when made by my US mom’s friends in the past.  This is my adaptation based on my recollections, together with my own twist, to bring the best out in these finger-licking, bite kicking, heavenly spiced scented Sloppy Joes. All the family love ‘em, and so will you and your friends – at least that’s what I’m hoping !!!  They are crazy delicious, and should […]

Best Ever Vegan ‘Steak’ Sandwich On The Planet With Caramelized Onions & Mushrooms

The traditional steak sandwich is a fairly simple affair – a slab of good quality grilled or fried beefsteak served on bread or in a roll with a choice of toppings.  Fried onions are a must in my book – in fact, I have caramelized mine, and also added a simple but tasty mushroom topping.  You can accompany this with a simple salad garnishing – and you have yourself a great VEGAN MANFOOD pick-me-up ! […]

Mushroom Walnut & Spicy Quinoa Burger (With A Smoky Tomatoed Pineapple Salsa)

Makes 4 large burgers (or 6 small ones) I cannot express to what extent these burgers where filled with contrasting flavours and divine texture.  As for the ‘tailor-made’ salsa, well that’s in a league of it’s own – once you try it, you’ll never stop making it for all sorts of savoury delights, especially bbq treats.  So get ready, steady and let’s go make these.  Serve with a crunchy green salad. INGREDIENTS mineral water ¾ […]

My King-Size Smoked ‘Bacon’ Burgers ! (100% Vegan)

Just felt like some ‘smoked’ flavoured grub.  Bacon has been off the menu for a long time now – but flavours remain deep-seated in the mind, and have unconscious dialogue with the taste buds.  This is an undetected method whereby memories filter through the conscious mind to the palette, and try to have their way.  They never do in the literal sense – but creative thinking is very much part of my genetic code – […]

Delicious Red Bean Nut Burgers

I have been making veggie burgers for years – even before I became vegetarian – I love them.  These great ones are very tasty indeed, and work very well served on slices of fried eggplant and a raw salad of your own choice.  I served it as described, except I decided to make some mushroom porcini rice and garnished with grated vegan cheddar cheese.  You will not regret making these, and oh, by the way, […]

Fast Layered Tomatoed Cheese Burgers

This was tonight’s dinner. I was a little worried about what I was going to make, but I wanted to serve something mouthwatering, but not have to spend too long over the stove. I didn’t want any compromising – I wanted lots of insane colours for inspiration, and to act as an appetizing kind of aphrodisiac – a feast on a plate, again without hours of preparation.  So this is what I came up with […]
