After a recent visit to McDonald’s, I thought I would test how good their veggie burger is by making my own.
The rear of the Imana Chakalaka soya mince gives an easy to follow recipe, although I pretty much did my own thing.
I added curry powder, dhania, cumin, mustard seeds, garlic, ginger and mixed herbs to rev up the flavour (buy from Spice Emporium for savings and a wide selection).
Onion rings were placed in between the raw patties; all on a glass casserole dish greased with olive oil.
My old faithful Weber was used to cook the patties using the indirect method.
Hickory wood chips were used to smoke flavour the patties with an artificial bacon flavour.
To finish off: Portuguese rolls, a slice of cheese, tomato, lettuce, low-fat salad dressing a good helping of Veri Peri of course!
My guinea pig in chief gave me an 8 out of 10 for effort and flavour, although I don’t think she has scored any previous meal higher than 7.
The patties tasted even better the next day!
