I got home from work last night and I just really wanted mac and cheese for dinner. We stopped by our local Natural Grocers but made the mistake of being hungry while grocery shopping and stopped to see if there were any vegan treats on sale.
That’s when we found The Beyond Burger for $5.84 and had to pick it up along with Daiya’s boxed cheezy mac.
This was our first time making The Beyond Burger at home. I’ve had it at restaurants before and absolutely loved it. The packaging looks just like meat packaging and it grills pretty quickly and similarly to meat.
DJ seasoned the burgers before we grilled them with onion powder, garlic powder, and black pepper.
We added Beyond Meat crumbles to the cheezy mac. I seasoned the crumbles with onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder, and black pepper. The cheez sauce is usually creamier when mixed in with the macaroni but the pasta was cold by the time I added it. We topped our burgers with pickles, daiya cheese, onions, and ketchup.
These are such a good alternative to meat. They grilled well and have a taste and texture really similar to meat. I recommend trying them out whether or not you’re vegan. Let me know what you guys think about The Beyond Burger in the comments! Have you tried it? What do you think of vegan meats in general?
