Cookbook tested: swinging vegetarian burgers (+ recipe!) | Lifestyle

Ben Lebus promises that “we will never again struggle with a vegetarian alternative for friends who don’t eat meat”. I tend to believe it with all those wonderful recipes and pictures.

But what is that intriguing MOB from the title? Google offers the solution: “MOB Kitchen” turns out to be an online cooking platform that helps students and “young professionals” to prepare budget-friendly restaurant-quality meals. “Mob” simply means “gang” or “group”, a word Lebus chose because “people kitchen” was already in use.

The vegetarian in the house can choose the recipe and goes for the halloumi burgers. According to Lebus “the tastiest veggie burger in existence”.

I think that’s a small exaggeration and prefer to talk about a simple flavor bomb that, if you roast the peppers in advance, is very quickly on the table. The added value is the piripiri sauce for which you need those peppers, and which is a particularly good match with the grilled halloumi. Spread generously, says Lebus, we take that to heart. Yummy! So a nice book.

Although we still have a comment. Each recipe comes with a Spotify code so that you “can start cooking with the right music”. Apparently you cook up halloumi burgers Love explosion by Donnell Pitman, which I do not know and which does not immediately appeal to me. As far as I’m concerned, unnecessary playthings. Maybe young professionals think differently.
