The Vegan Brodveg @ Brodburger, Kingston

Brodveg Burger

Original Post by The Canberra Vegan

It has taken us a while to get around to visiting Brodburger, one of the most widely reviewed and blogged food outlets in Canberra. The buzz was that the vegan burger was pretty good, so we dropped in after visiting the Kingston Bus Depot Markets. Arriving before 12pm meant that our wait was relatively short at 20 minutes. Notably, the burger has no patty as such, just a delicious stack of marinated and grilled vegetables with a spicy sauce and garlicky aioli. Thankfully, as the vegan option is listed on the menu, there is no explaining to do. Just order and enjoy.

Be sure to order the Vegan version of the Brodveg!  Ingredients:  flame grilled vegetables (mushroom, eggplant, zucchini, capsicum) with Vegan aioli and tomato relish.

These are eight very pleasant little burgers that are great with salad.  Comes with ‘Asian Slaw’ recipe on the back (which I haven’t tried yet).

They seem to be so new that not even the Veggie Delights website makes any mention of them.  I’ve asked them to look into this.

Ingredients:  Water, Vegetable Protein (16%) (soy protien, pea protein, soybean meal, wheat gluten), Vegetables (potato, onion, shallots, red capsicum), Vegetable Oils (sunola, canola), Breadcrumbs (wheat flour, salt, yeast, wheat gluten, sugar, canola oil), Oats, Thai Kaffir Lime Seasoning [ dehydrated vegetable protein, parsley, chilli, natural falvour, lime spice extract, natural colour (beetroot)], Flavours, Starch (potato, wheat), Vegetable Gum (carrageenan), Reconstituted Lime Juice (0.4%), Salt, Mineral Salt (potassium chloride), Minerals (zinc, iron), Vitamin B12.
