Not really burgers,
This review is from: The Best Veggie Burgers on the Planet: 101 Flavor-Packed Patties of 100% Vegan Goodness - with More Taste and Delicious Nutrition than Anything You'd Find at the Store (Paperback)
I was dissapointed with this book and certainly would not recommend it to anyone living in Australia or who is gluten intolerant. Many of the ingredients are not avaiable in this country, such as vital gluten flour which is included in about half of the recipes. Many of the recipes include odd combinations such as tahini and green curry paste which simply do not go together at all, and yes I have tried it. A lot of recipes include wheat and other flours and as such, sound more like doughs than burgers. I am only keeping my copy because it's too difficult to send it back. I will percevere with it, but I will be changing some of the ingredients and doing a fair bit of modification to the recipes that I will attmept.

Gluten flour is widely available in Australia - vegans know where to get it - health food stores, alternative and vegan grocery stores and online stores. I just make this comment in case anyone is put off, unfairly I think, by the above review.

Gluten flour is easy enoughto find but some of the other ingredients are a bit obscure. As I said the recipes sound doughy and since I wrote that review I haven't tried any more. I am a vegan but it's not the type of food that I like, we are all different which I guess is what more interesting.
