Meatless Monday with Simple Vegan Korean Kimchi BBQ Burgers

Welcome to the Miratel blog for another Meatless Monday vegan recipe share. The Meatless Monday pledge aims to reduce meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve personal and planetary health. Miratel has taken the pledge to support this great initiative, which we have included as part of our CSR business strategies to spread awareness of the impact of food choices on our environment.

Just because you want to make a vegan meal doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy summer favourites like burgers. That is why we’re continuing out summer burger series, where each week we bring you a new, flavour packed vegan burger recipe. Tonight we’re sharing with you a vegan Korean kimchi BBQ burger. This delicious dish comes from Annie and Dan Shannon via One Green Planet, an amazing resource for all things good for the planet like being vegan.

INGREDIENTS (serves 4)

Burger:

  • 2 cups vegan ground “beef”vegan korean kimchi bbq burger
  • 1 green onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses
  • ½ teaspoon ginger paste
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce or Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
  • Dash of vegan liquid smoke
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

BBQ Sauce:

  • 1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce or Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
  • Dash of vegan liquid smoke
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha or Thai chili sauce
  • ¼ cup applesauce
  • 2 teaspoons agave nectar
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger paste
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

To Assemble:

  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 4 whole wheat hamburger buns
  • 1 cup vegan kimchi (read labels to make sure yours is vegan; some contain fish sauce)

PREPARATION

  1. Make the burger: In a large bowl, use your hands to mix together the vegan beef, green onion, molasses, ginger paste, soy sauce, vegan liquid smoke, onion powder, and garlic until blended. The molasses is really sticky, so this is kind of messy and weird, but it’s totally worth it. Promise.
  2. Form the mixture into 4 patties about the size of your hand. Place them on a plate, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, make the BBQ sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together all the BBQ sauce ingredients. Set aside.
  4. In a cast-iron skillet or frying pan, heat
  5. 1 tablespoon of the sesame oil over medium heat. Working in batches, fry the burgers until lightly crispy around the edges, then reduce the heat to low and brush the burgers with
  6. BBQ sauce. Flip and coat the burgers a few times to get a nice saucy patty, but watch out for the hot oil. Repeat with the remaining burgers, adding the remaining oil after the first batch.
  7. Toast the burger buns while the burger patties are cooking.
  8. Serve each burger in a toasted bun with lots of kimchi on top.
