Vegan meat startup Beyond Meat has an unexpected new executive on its board of directors—former McDonald’s CEO Don Thompson.
You know how the saying goes: you can lead a meat-eater to a millet-kale burger, but he will run away screaming “I need bacon!” Or something like that. But the vegetarian diet might be getting a little “meaty” help from a most unlikely (and kind of spooky) place: plant blood.
The simple and delicious Turkish red lentil-bulgur wheat mercimek kofte dish is the inspiration behind this veggie burger recipe. Here, I substitute farro for the bulgur and bake the patties so they take on more of a veggie burger feel.
If you’ve never tried a veggie burger. You should try this one! It tastes nothing like a meat burger, so don’t expect that, but it has a good mix of flavors, a nice texture…and it’s healthy.
