Building the Perfect Vegan Burger
There are absolutely no rules (except for keeping it #freefromanimals) when it comes to putting together the perfect vegan burger—just do whatever floats your boat! But sometimes we all need a bit of inspiration to construct something epically appropriate for our wicked appetites. Here are a couple tips to help you along the path to burger bliss:
- Use Steam to Melt Chao: As you’ll see in the recipe and video, we’ve found that using a bit of steam helps melt the chao on the burger. Add a small amount of water to the pan at the very end of the burger cooking process and cover to get the melty deliciousness you crave!
- Toast the Buns: Toasting burger buns (and pretty much any sandwich or wrap, for that matter) is a game changer. Use a little bit of oil or plant-based mayo/butter and get those buns golden brown!
- Embrace the Flavors YOU Love: As we said before, there are no rules for building the perfect burger, so explore the flavor combinations that you like best. Whether you’re looking for spicy, sweet, tangy or savory, only you know what combo will be your favorite!
