Martin Nordin, the creative Swedish veggie enthusiast behind the Instagram sensation “Green Burgers,” takes vegetarian burgers and sides to the next level. I warmed up my carnivorous friends with some Pickled Onions and Sweet Potato Chips with Swiss Cheese, then offered them more of a challenge: the Chickpea and Grilled Pepper Burger with Dill-Dunked Cucumber Salad. A tasty time was had by all, especially by this cook, who is inspired to take her burger game up a notch (or three).
Whether you're vegetarian, vegan, or just trying to cut down on meat, veggie burgers make a tempting, filling meal. And as Martin Nordin explains, they're far from boring – in fact, because there are no rules or blueprint, you're free to push the burger boundaries.
In Green Burgers, Martin shares recipes packed full of flavor and nutrition – from the classic BBQ Portobello Burger to the Zucchini Burger with Wild Garlic. Experiment with unexpected flavours such as Zucchini Kimchi and Deep-Fried Plantain. The delicious patties are just the beginning – try making your own Charcoal Burger Buns, top your burgers with Purple Cabbage and Apple Sauerkraut, and serve with Roasted Sweet-Potato Fries.
With chapters on burgers, buns, sides, pickles, and sauces, Green Burgers has all you need to make the perfect plant-based burgers and sides at home.
