Forget about those store-bought, lab-created Vegan Burgers made with tons of weird ingredients whose names you can’t even pronounce. Quickly and easily make your very own scrumptious Vegan Better Burger at home for a fraction of the price, no dictionary required!
I don’t know about where you live, but in my part of the world, Beyond Meat’s plant-based burger appears to be on everybody’s lips! Everywhere you go, everywhere you look, people are talking about it. Or maybe that’s just because I happen to be following a lot of vegan stuff…
But still… I must admit that I was curious and ran to the grocery store as soon as it came out so I could finally give it a try. Whoa! Impressive, I must say! But unfortunately, as tasty and as close to the real thing as it may be, the list of ingredients — this thing sounds like it was made in a lab rather than in a kitchen — and serious over-packaging have been major turn-offs for me.
So, seeing as how Summer is right around the corner — and what’s Summer without a good burger, right? — I decided to work at creating my own, much healthier, vegan burger recipe. I studied dozens of different versions on the Internet, grabbed a little bit of this, kept a little bit of that, left some of this out and added some of that, made a few test runs and I think that I’ve managed to come up with the vegan burger recipe that will be accompanying me this summer.
Indeed, this vegan burger is crazy tasty, comes out all nice and crispy on the outside, juicy, tender and slightly chewy on the inside, and while it’s not nearly as close to the original deal as the lab created stuff, it’s pretty darn earthy, meaty and smokey, if you ask me. Oh, and hubby approved, too!
Now I’m ready for Summer… if it could please just get here, already?
