Imagine biting into a juicy, savory, perfectly cooked burger. Now, imagine your surprise to learn that burger wasn’t made of meat at all—it was a vegan burger! You’d freak out, right?! You’d say, “No way, that’s impossible! This burger definitely tastes like the real deal.”
And that’s exactly what this burger is: Impossible.
Making the Impossible Possible
The Impossible Burger is a no-meat patty that doesn’t use mushy veggie mash to mimic a beef burger. This delicious item has been in the making for five years! The team behind the Impossible Burger includes scientists, farmers, and chefs who studied immensely to perfectly match the deliciousness of meat burgers. And, because this patty is made from 0% cow and 100% plant it’s great for the environment because it uses 95% less land, 74% less water, and creates 87% less greenhouse gas emissions. Bet your meat burger can’t brag about that!
So, what’s it made of?
The Impossible Burger is made of simple, all-natural ingredients such as wheat, coconut oil, and potatoes. But what makes this sandwich sizzle, smell, and taste like a burger made from cow is a secret ingredient called heme. It’s basically a building block of life and is especially abundant in meat—that’s what makes the Impossible “veggie” Burger impossibly tasty!
As many of you all know, I’ve cut out meat since the summer, and I’ve been loving the transformations I’ve seen and felt with my body! It truly has been a great experience for me so far, but I have been missing my burgers! Anyone who’s tried veggie patties knows that they really aren’t the same as meat burgers, no matter how good your imagination is. But I can honestly say I was BLOWN AWAY by the Impossible Burger!
Me and the hubby (a die-hard carnivore btw) were invited to taste the Impossible Burger at Grindhouse Killer Burgers in Decatur, and even the hubs couldn’t believe how much it tasted like his usual meat patties. Now I’ll admit I was a little skeptical since I’d feasted on quite a few “burgers pretending to be burgers” since I’ve kicked meat to the curb. After bite #1 my first thought was this can’t be possible. So, I had to take a second bite just to be sure. And then, a third for good measure. 😛 By bite #6 I was totally convinced that this was no ordinary veggie burger… I had just experienced THE most dee-lish non-meat burger these chops have ever chomped. My hubby and I both agree that nothing comes close to the Impossible Burger. This baby is a game changer!
Even if you’re not vegan, you have got to try this burger! Maybe treat yourself to a Meatless Monday and head to Grindhouse for one of these amazing patties. Trust me… Once you take a bite you’ll find it impossible to put down. 😉
