I’ve been getting a lot of emails asking if I’ll be doing vegetarian burgers so I thought I’d make note of that request here (would love to hear from more of you if you are interested). The Afghan burger’s flavors come mainly from the toppings which would work great with a plain veggie burger. I would think you could take the spices that I put in the lamb and sprinkle them on the burger itself too, but I haven’t tried that. If one of you does give it a whirl, please let me know how it turns out.
As for future veggie options, I will let you know which recipes will work with a prepackaged veggie burger and how I recommend you prepare them, but, unless I come across a society of vegetarians, we’re going to be dealing with meat here folks. (yes, I know, India has a lot of vegetarians. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, we haven’t even made it to Albania together yet).
I can tell you that there will be fishcakes in our future. I know that fish isn’t a vegetable, yet several of my vegetarian friends have been known to eat fish fairly regularly. So if you are one of them, you will enjoy the islands when we get there.
Albania should be up by Thursday.
