Who said vegetables are boring?
Who said vegetables are boring? In this post, we will show you how to prepare an amazing vegan burger; our “Gran Vegano”, delicious, healthy and full of color.
Suitable for everybody and perfect to show that a great burger doesn’t necessarily have to contain meat.
Home made mashed avocado
Leave the chickpeas to soak overnight to tenderize them. The next day, we separate them into two halves. We boil the first half of chickpeas with a pinch of salt. Then we drain and let them cool. We keep the other half hydrated.
Wash the spinach and chop it roughly with the chickpeas (both the cooked and the hydrated ones). We mix everything with diced red pepper, grains of cooked corn, black pepper and cayenne.
Mash all the ingredients and add salt. At this point, we can shape it for a burger. Before frying, we recommend freezing the burger for one day so it’s well compacted.
There are a few elements that we need to have in mind when creating vegan and vegetarian burgers. Usually a burger joint is somewhere you expect to find only meat but we wanted to do things a little differently and offer an alternative to meat that was just as high quality.
One of our principles when making our “meatless” burgers was to create a special and unique flavor. We don’t want vegan burgers with meaty flavor, we’d rather leave that to the creators of the “vegan chorizo”. Instead we want to capture the qualities of the vegetables and turn them into a burger.
As any of our loyal followers will vouch for, we never stop experimenting with monthly specials to find new and tasty combinations and the vegan and veggie burgers are no exception.
