vegan “big mac”

vegan big mac_hot for food

You know those nights when you just feel like a big mac? Well, don’t go get one, because you’ll hate yourself afterwards. Instead, make this vegan “big mac” at home and hate yourself a little less from the comfort of your couch! I hope you know I’m joking. I haven’t hated myself after eating once since going vegan 2 years ago.

I made this using Gardein’s Ultimate Beefless Burger patties and Fieldroast’s Chao Cheese, and I made a quick “big mac” dressing from vegan mayonnaise (recipe follows). When it comes to vegan mayonnaise, I really like Earth Island (Follow Your Heart) to make any dips and sauces where I’m adding my own flavors and ingredients to it. Wildwood’s Zesty Garlic Aioli (no seasoning required) is great for when I just want a little flavor on sandwiches.

I also have to admit that my vegan “big mac” looks a lot more alive than the one you get at the drive through!

    That looks great!!! I think that would be great with portobello mushrooms as well.
    Definitely in a mood for a burger on this Sunday morning now..
