Introduction: Delicious Meat-free Burgers

About: I'm an im-perfect vegan who loves changing my old favourite recipes into vegan delights :)

Burgers. WHO doesn't love burgers? 😍

I have changed my moms Gigantic Burger recipe into a vegetarian/vegan delight that will satisfy ANYONE! This was one of my favourite recipes growing up, so you can be assured that it is amazing! 😍🀩

Step 1: Ingredients + Tools

Patty Ingredients (Makes 2) :

  • 400g Soya Mince
  • 1 Egg (or Flax Egg* for a vegan option)
  • 1 Tbsp Bread crumbs
  • Pinch of Salt and Pepper
  • Oil for "cooking" patties

Serving Ingredients :

  • Bread Buns
  • Mayonnaise
  • Tomato
  • Lettuce
  • Red onion
  • Vegan Cheese
  • Avo
  • Carrots
  • Any other toppings you love on burgers!!!

Tools :

  • Pot - for cooking the soya if you use dried soya
  • Pan for "cooking" the patties
  • Cutting board
  • Sharp knife

Step 2: Making the Patties!

Firstly let’s talk about the soya you decide to use. There are SO many options available!

I recommend buying dried soya mince that has some β€œgravy” (a β€œcheaper” one I bought had TOO much gravy though, so in this case I actually sifted some off before cooking it). They were so deliciously moist!

Recently I saw dry mince that only needs soaking, but has no gravy. Remember you might need less bread crumbs :)

Don’t stress if you use frozen Soya mince either, just remember it will use less bread crumbs :)

Mix the soya mince and egg/flax egg (*Flax Egg are simply 1 Tbsp Flaxseed Powder mixed with 3 Tbsp water. Let it stand for 10 minutes to thicken up 😊). Gauge whether the mixture needs bread crumbs (if you're using the soya mince without gravy it might be fine as is), it should be a "drier" consistency so that you can form patties that hold their shape :)

"Cook" your vegetarian patties in a frying pan over low heat. I love using coconut oil for shallow frying as it gives the patties a delicious, crunchy outside 🀀

Step 3: Slice and Dice Your Toppings!

While you are slowly frying your patties, slice your veggies! Use whatever your heart desires on top of your burger! This step is up to you! 😎

Step 4: Assemble Your Masterpiece!

Cut your bun, slap on the mayo, and construct your burger! Now, the real question is, does the cheese go under or on top of the patty? I did both! Just to be safe πŸ˜›
