I know that Impossible burgers are not the healthiest things in the world but sometimes I need to satisfy that burger craving. When I found out that Impossible ground beef is now sold in retail stores I wanted to try cooking my own.
To keep things vegan, we will be using Chao cheese. It's one of the better vegan cheeses that I have tried. But to be honest, I am not really a fan of commercially available vegan cheese. So far, I have not found one that I like; if you know of a good one, please leave a comment.
A serving of the Impossible beef is four ounces. The package has twelve ounces, so I divided it up into two balls. Then used my hands to form three patties just about the size of my burger buns.
Now that everything is prepared, it's time to start cooking our burgers.
To start the cooking, I did put a little oil in the pan. I was not sure if it would be needed, but it did seem to help them develop a crust. When they start to bleed, they are ready to flip. This took about three minutes.
I also started toasting my bun so they would be ready when the burger patties were.
This is what they looked like after flipping.
I added the vegan cheese thinking it might melt.
When I gave up on the cheese melting, it was time to assemble the Impossible burger. The bottom bun added some lettuce, then one of the patties with cheese, sliced tomato add some mayo to the top bun, and the burger is complete.
I used commercial mayo for this burger, but If you would like to make your own vegan mayo check out this recipe.
