BREAKING NEWS! There is now a plant-based burger on the market that looks and (in my opinion) tastes pretty dern close to beef! The crazy part is that it is made of plant-based ingredients that has more nutritional value than a traditional burger. The Beyond Burger hit the shelves recently and the vegan community has been going NUTS!
So how was it?!
I thoroughly enjoyed this burger! It was easy to cook and tasted great. The texture is pretty meat-like and it’s even pretty juicy! If there’s one thing I’ve learned about cooking meat substitutes, it’s NOT to over cook it! So when it came to cooking this burger, I was extra mindful in making sure I followed the directions. The directions advise that you cook it for 3 minutes on each side, so I pulled out my iPhone’s timer just to make sure I was cooking it properly. I refused to let my money go to waste! I topped my burger with the usual suspects: avocado, tomato, “cheese”, ketchup and mustard. The goal was to keep it simple so that the extra stuff didn’t outshine the flavor of the “meat”.
This burger comes in packs of two, so I was generous and let my husband try out the other one 🙂 He enjoyed it, but didn’t agree with my opinion of it tasting so similar to meat. However, he said it was pretty good.
Where can I find these?!
Have you tried the Beyond Burger? If so, what did you think?!
