The UK has gone burger crazy in a big way, with a number of gourmet burger chains and pop ups focusing solely on the art of creating the perfect patty. This interest has extended to veggie burgers as well as the beef variety and, happily, gone are the days where vegetarian diners can be expected to be presented with a grilled mushroom as a somewhat underwhelming meat substitute.
This collection of veggie burgers is full of delicious, filling dinner ideas for everyone to enjoy, whether they're vegetarian or a card-carrying meat lover. Jack Monroe's Carrot and cumin bean burger recipe is both tasty and fantastically frugal, or try Josh Eggleton's hearty Chickpea burger for a filling pub favourite. Nancy combines tofu with a coriander pesto in her veggie burger recipe, while Deena Kakaya pairs mushroom and quinoa to make a delicious vegan burger.
