Today was my first attempt at a recipe from that titan of vegan cookbooks, Veganomicon.
The book, written by the creators of the blog Post Punk Kitchen, is a serious treasure trove of vegan recipes and, best of all, doesn’t heavily rely on soy “meat” and “cheese” products.
I was a little intimidated after hefting it up the stairs to my apartment (it’s heavy! Think Joy of Cooking girth), but was happy to discover dozens of recipes I can’t wait to try. Veganomicon‘s portobello burgers were first on my list and were they ever worth it. Pair these savory portobello burgers with crispy fries* and even the most dedicated carnivore won’t turn one down (take it from someone who used to have trouble passing the Dupont Circle Five Guys).
