Two burgers with red onion and cucumbers.

I know it’s probably so weird to see other things on this blog besides chocolate cake and peanut butter cookies but I swear I eat other foods guys so I thought I would share some with you. These Beyond Meat burger patties (btw this is not sponsored, I just really like this product!) are so freaking good and the taste and texture are pretty darn close to the real thing.

Plant based burgers flat lay with pickled red onion

As many of you know, I am not vegan but I do try and limit my meat and dairy intake for ethical reasons. I couple of years ago I was at an event where Jane Goodall (my queen!) was speaking. I can’t remember the exact quote anymore but she said something along the lines of “We can’t expect the entire world to stop eating meat but if everyone reduced their intake it would make a huge difference.” And that stuck with me.

What you will need to make these amazing plant based burgers

This Beyond Meat cooks very similar to a beef patty so I just placed them in a skillet with a little olive oil and cooked them on medium heat for 3-5 minutes on each side. Meanwhile, I toasted my buns and prepared the rest of my ingredients and then built this epic burger!

  • Beyond Meat burger patties or plant based patty of choice
  • olive oil
  • red onions
  • red wine vinegar
  • lettuce
  • tomato
  • vegan burger buns
  • vegan goat cheese or vegan condiments of choice
  • and any other condiments you desire
  • kind of wishing I added some smashed avocado…oh well, maybe next time

These plant based burgers are so good! I can’t wait for you guys to try them and tell me what you think!
