Almost every classic changes over time. Burgers used to consist of mountains of meat, but today, vegan soy burgers are a hit. Plant-based meat substitutes made from soy are now being grilled in high-end kitchens. So they taste like meat and smell like meat, but are still pure plant! Well, you can’t eat our vegan soy burger with homemade buns as fast as the Golden M burger. After all, baking good buns takes time and patience. But it’s worth the effort, I promise! Carnivores will also enjoy the soy burger.
If you’re interested in trying other meat-free alternatives, we recommend these three:
Vegetarian and vegan diets are becoming more and more popular in Germany. This is evidenced by the increase in production of fruit and vegetable products. Even leading companies around the world have reacted to this trend and are now offering vegetarian pumpkin and lentil curry, vegetarian rice bowls or soy burgers in their kitchens. Nevertheless, we were surprised to hear that VW is changing its kitchens to vegetarian. Above all, the VW Currywurst was and is a legend. It wasn’t good news for everyone, but it wasn’t a storm of outrage. Moreover, there are many excellent alternatives. You can also eat curry on the go.
Attention, risk of confusion: vegan soy burgers with homemade buns
The soy burger with rocket, avocado and cheddar is a serious alternative to its meaty counterparts. Here is a simple recipe:
For the rolls, mix the yeast with 180ml warm water. Knead with flour and salt to form a smooth dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place for at least 30 minutes. Then preheat the oven (electric hob: 200 degrees, fan: 180 degrees, gas: level 3).
For the hamburgers, soak the soy strips in the hot vegetable broth for about 10 minutes. Finely chop the onion and garlic and fry in 2 tablespoons of oil until translucent. Mix in flour and tomato paste. Squeeze the soybean strips well and add them to the onion mixture. Mix everything well, season with smoked salt, cumin, pepper and paprika powder.
Make 4 balls (about 10 cm ø) from the yeast dough and flatten them a little. Moisten the surface a little and press it with oat flour. Place the buns on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in a hot oven for about 20 minutes. Then take it out and let it cool.
Form 4 flat burgers (about 10 cm ø) from the soy dough. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a pan. Fry the soy burgers until golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side. Then keep warm.
Cut the avocado in half, peel it and puree it with lemon juice. Season the puree with salt and pepper. Peel the red onion and cut into small rings. Wash and chop tomatoes. Cut the rolls in half and spread half with the avocado mousse. Place the onion rings, tomato, chopped cilantro and soy burger, cheddar, tomato slices and arugula on the bottom of the bun. Place the top half of the bun on top. Secure with wooden dowels if desired.
