Forget the drive-through, in Vegan Fast Food you’ll find mouthwatering junk food and comfort food classics, minus the meat and dairy.
Whether you’re a brand-new vegan missing buffalo wings or a longtime vegan tired of the limited vegan options when eating out, Brian Watson, aka Thee Burger Dude, has been there. In fact, few food bloggers have thought more about what textures, tastes, and special sauces make iconic dishes so addictive. In this book, he takes you on a tour through national chain favorites, regional cult classics, and even a few nostalgic dishes perfect for parties, potlucks, or any Saturday night.
- Nationwide Burgers and Fries: Brian made his name on recreations of iconic burgers. In this chapter, he shares his obsessively researched, version 2.0 editions for nationwide icons and debuts a ton of new recipes as well.
- Fried Chicken, Wings, and Nuggets: Multiple styles of plant-based fried chicken are covered, including Brian’s YouTube sensation oyster mushroom fried chicken.
- Beyond the Bun: Craveable Mexican, Asian, and fast-casual recipes that are every bit as good as the original meaty or cheesy versions range from delivery-like pizza and kung pao to gorditas, burrito bowls, and meatball subs.
- The Most Important Meal of the Day: Breakfast for dinner? Hangover brunch? No matter the mission, this chapter packs the vegan biscuits and gravy, breakfast burritos, diner-style pancakes, and the French toast sticks to make it happen.
With a basics chapter that sets you up with homemade burgers, fried chicken, and all the essential condiments, you’re sure to find whatever you’re craving!

Where was this book all the years I was vegan? This is a fantastic cookbook for anyone vegan or just trying to reduce their animal products who craves their old fast food favorites. Every recipe has a delicious, authentic looking photo. There’s a Taco Bell crunch wrap, a McDonalds filet of fish, Cinnabon cinnamon rolls, Chik Fil A chicken sandwich, Cheesecake Factory fried Mac and cheese balls, Wendy’s chocolate shake, you name it. There are tons of recipes. The instructions are easy to follow even though some of the recipes will definitely take some time and effort. Most seem like they’ll be tastier and healthier than the originals, though none of this is really healthy of course. No surprise, there’s no nutritional information.
About half the recipes use whole food ingredients and about half call for purchased products, but he provides homemade recipes if you want to make your own versions of those too.
If you’re craving old favorite junk food treats, this will be a great book.
