Big McVeggieMac

Posted by on Apr 7, 2011 in Recipes

Hello my vegan friends and anyone out there just a little curious! I’ve been so busy these past months I have neglected my blog, sorry. I’m happy to say that I’ve been busy in a good way. I now cook and deliver vegetarian meals for several people around my area a few times a week. I’ve also been doing some cooking classes and spreading the vegan word around Ohio.

Big McVeggieMac

I have to admit that I used to LOVE, dare I say it – Big Macs. (Probably why I had triple by-pass surgery!). I keep trying different veggie burgers, but they really don’t come close to the real thing. I finally found one that’s not too bad; Gardein has come out with a beefless burger, look for it in the frozen section of your local health food store. You can also check their website for a local store nearest you. Their website is www.gardein.com.

I keep seeing Big Mac ads on TV, so I thought why not make a vegan “Big Mac”? So here is what I came up with.

McVeggieMac Ingredients

  • Gardein Beefless Patties (or any vegan burger)
  • small onion, minced
  • finely chopped lettuce
  • couple of pickles
  • vegan cheeze
  • “special sauce” (recipe follows)
  • whole wheat hamburger bun

1. Place Gardein “patty” in a grill skillet, cook about 4-5 minutes each side. (you don’t have to thaw out)

2. After both sides are grilled, add slice of cheeze, cover until cheeze is melted.

3. Slather some of the “special sauce” on bottom of bun, place “burger” on top, then start layering, pickles, lettuce, onions, more sauce, and cover with bun.

4. Enjoy!
