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).
Spray a large frying pan with cooking spray over a high heat. Add the mince, onion and garlic and fry for 5 minutes, or until cooked through. Season well.
Add the cheese slices on top of the mince and place under the grill to melt. Remove from heat once nice and melted.
Mix all the sauce ingredients in a bowl with 4 tbsp of water until well combined.
Add the the lettuce, gherkins, onions and tomatoes to 4 wide bowls.
Spoon the beef mixture on top and drizzle over the sauce.
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
