Vegan Product of the week:
Beyond Meat: The Beyond Burger
I finally made it a priority to cook these bad boys at home. I have had them time and time again at local restaurants and they are DELICIOUS!! Daniel & I used the cold weather as an excuse to get cozy cooking together with a meal that vegans and non-vegans can both enjoy.
First, grab your appetizer. Here’s our app of choice 😛 & fire up that oven for any sides (waffle fries) you may be dreaming of.
Fire up that grill, griddle, skillet, George Foreman etc & grab your fixins.
We kept it simple with a big ole sexy kosher pickle sliced up.. and copious amounts of lettuce.
Put some serious thought into your bun choice.. Everything buns of course.
Cook those bad boys. Be careful though. I about had a flop when I didn’t realize just how soft these plant based burgers are. Much easier to pick them up by the packing paper and plop them over onto your cooking surface.
Assemble & plate. While enjoying your second.. or third “appetizer”.
Tadah!!! I also added some Field Roast Chao cheese because its the best sliced vegan cheese to grace these taste buds. & some BBQ sauce for dipping 😉
Best burger I’ve ever made at home. Period. Point blank. EVER. & no animals were harmed! Being vegan can be and IS easy, it just takes a little practice. Reach out if you ever need tips or recipes!

o Tyson Foods is among a group of investors providing additional funding to a start-up that uses mushroom-based ingredients that can be used in making plant-based products that mimic beef, pork or chicken. MycoTechnology Inc. primarily generates ingredients designed to provide an organic, non-GMO and chemical-free way for food companies to eliminate bitterness in their products. The Aurora, Colo.-based firm says its ClearTaste product can be used to enhance the aftertaste of the sweetener Stevia, removes astringency in beer and alcohol and improves the acidic levels in other beverages to balance their flavor profiles. MycoTechnology also offers a mushroom-fermented protein called PureTaste that can be used in vegan dishes and other plant-based proteins, according to the company’s website. Tyson – which already has invested in plant-protein maker Beyond Meat and cultured meat manufacturer Memphis Meats – has no immediate plans to develop products with MycoTechnology, a spokesman told The Arkansas Democrat Gazette. However, such a relationship could be considered in the future, the spokesman said. The size of the Tyson investment was not disclosed.
Happy Galentines Day today & Valentines Day tomorrow lovebirds!!
Peace, love, and vegan eats,
