Vegan Big Mac
The Classic Big Mac, only VEGAN!
There isn't much to say about this! It's literally a Big Mac only Vegan! It's a beast of a burger, I don't remember ever being so full after eating a regular Big Mac. Funny, I thought being vegan meant you were always going hungry! Somehow that's not true with this burger!
Also, traditionally the Big Mac has one slice of cheese and it's (for some reason) melted on top of the lettuce? Well, sometimes traditions are dumb, so we're putting two slices on it, and melting them on the burger patties instead!
The Big Mac Sauce I've put together is a bit simpler than what you'll find in other recipes, but I honestly think it's just as good, if not better since it's less ingredients and easier to make. Use whatever plant-based meat or cheese you want! ENJOY!
Makes 1 Big Mac
2 Plant-Based Meat Patties (3-4 oz each)
2 Slices Vegan Cheese
1/2 Cup Shredded Iceberg Lettuce
5-6 Dill Pickle Slices
2 Tbsp Chopped Onion
1 Sesame Bun + Bottom Half of another Bun
2 Tbsp Vegan Mayo
1 Tbsp Ketchup
1/2 Tbsp Sweet Relish
1/2 - 1 Tbsp White Vinegar
Combine vegan mayo, ketchup, relish and vinegar. Stir until well combined. Set aside in the fridge.
To prepare your middle bun, use a serrated knife and shave off just the bottom of the extra bottom bun.
Grill buns in a bit of oil or vegan butter until golden brown. Set aside.
Press your burger patties so they match the circumference of your buns. Then over medium high heat, grill on each side for 3-4 minutes.
After you flip the patties, add a slice of cheese to one and cover with a melting dome.
Once Cheese is melted, assemble as follows; Bottom Bun, Sauce, Lettuce, Patty w/ Cheese, Onions, Middle Bun, Sauce, Pickles, Lettuce, Patty, Onions, Sauce, Top Bun.
