One of the many exciting things we get in our goodie bags during our monthly cooking classes at the NKCS is a vegan cookbook. Our most recent surprise to go along with “The World of Beans” weekend was a book I have never heard of before called Meatless Burgers by Louise Hagler. I enjoy Hagler’s work, as she wrote one of my favorite cookbooks, The Tofu Cookery. I was pleased to receive the Meatless Burgers book and was blown away by all of the creative veggie burger recipes. Since I’ve been a big fan of almost every beet-based burger I’ve had to date, I decided to try the beet burgers. In addition to the beets, some of the other main ingredients included tofu and vital wheat gluten. I fell short of the amount of tofu that the recipe called for, which I think caused the burgers to be softer than they probably should have been. Despite this, the color and flavor of the burgers were great. I enjoyed my burger with some Chipotle Vegenaise and dill hamburger slices. The burgers were even delicious on their own, sans hamburger buns.
Overall, I’d rate this burger as 3 out of 5 carrots on the veganlicious scale!

I sent a link to your blog to my sister and niece who just embraced vegan life! Thanks for sharing and the commentary. I’ll serve up these recipes too here on the SoDak ranch. Bon appetit!
That’s wonderful Ronda! So glad to read that your sister and niece have just started their vegan journey. Enjoy the blog and vegan cooking. Namaste.
