Food Friday: [NEW!] “Veggie Fast Food”

Today’s Food Friday recipe comes from a brand new release from Grub Street Publishing: Veggie Fast Food by Clarissa & Florian Sehn.

This book, in addition to being full of delicious, fast, vegetarian recipes, is beautifully illustrated with full-color photos for each recipe. Bonus: it even includes vegan alternatives, when possible. Whether you’re a vegetarian, a vegan, or neither, this book is worth a look for the creative recipes you’ll find within.

About the book:
9781910690185Are you under the impression that vegetarians can’t have fast food? On the contrary! This exciting new cookbook offers more than 80 quick and easy veggie recipes – from Manchego quesadillas and TexMex burgers to tomato-cinnamon fries and No Tuna Sandwich. This is the book of vegetarian food for those in a hurry, and the handy ‘vegan traffic light’ indicators – red for vegetarian; yellow for vegan adaptation and green for vegan make it easy to find vegan options just as quickly. The authors Clarissa and Florian Sehn, discovered their love of vegetarian and vegan cuisine together. Soon, however, they ran out of creative ideas – they needed a new recipe book. So they decided to develop recipes themselves and this is the result. Their first cookbook is dedicated to vegetarian fast food, which they consider has always received short shrift – until now.

It’s Memorial Weekend, so obviously we had to choose a veggie burger recipe! This Tex Mex Burger is so good that even meat-lovers will want to give it a try. Keep reading for the full recipe… Continue reading “Food Friday: [NEW!] “Veggie Fast Food””
