Big Mac Salad Bowl


Big Mac Salad Bowl

I made this quite a bit during the summer after I saw my sister post her picture of this meal she had made from slimming world. I love burgers so it appealed to me straight away. The simplicity of it meant it was very easy to veganize and also a quick lunch/dinner to prepare when you need to get dinner on the table quickly. You check out Slimming World’s recipe here.

I also don’t like boring salads and like to have different textures, flavours and dressings to make them more interesting. If they have flavour and lots going on I really enjoy a good salad. I love having this recipe for lunch and enjoy it almost as much as eating a burger with a bun. McDonald’s burgers aren’t very healthy and have so much sugar in the bun alone, this is the next best thing to a Big Mac but it’s much healthier for you. You’re getting some of your 5 a day too and it doesn’t feel like an effort to do it.

Don’t forget to use #vblrecipes and tag me @veganbabelife on social media so I can see what you guys have made. You can also check out my other delicious, cruelty-free recipes here.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did making it (and eating it).

Recipe Notes

Naturli mince is my favourite mince that replicates a burger patty really well and is meaty. You can use whatever kind you like but I have pretty much tried them all and this is my favourite. *Available to purchase from Sainsburys

    I’m gonna have to try making that sauce and see if it’ll be close enough to the sauce that I remember… mind, it has been YEARS since I ate a BigMac. I did have the McVegan in Finland but can’t really remember if the sauce is meant to be the same…other than it was amazing 😉

      Yeah do it! It’s pretty close from what I remember it being like but it has been years. Aww so jealous! I can’t wait to try the mcvegan myself. The veggie burger is pretty bland and basic..
