CHEESEBURGER SALAD

CHEESEBURGER SALAD
CHEESEBURGER SALAD

Can't decide if you want to eat a healthy vegan salad, or a vegan cheese burger?

We have only gone and combined the two so you don't have to choose!

Now, there’s an argument that these two things don’t necessarily belong together. But trust us, this cheeseburger salad extravaganza will do for salads what Stranger Things did for double denim.

Naughty-ish. Healthy-ish. No need to split hairs, just dig in and take your vegan-ing to the next level.

A scrumptious vegan idea for lunch!

  • 1 tbsp gherkin brine (from the jar)
  • 1⁄2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1⁄4 tsp vinegar
  • 1⁄4 tsp white pepper
  • 1⁄2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1⁄4 tsp onion powder
  • 1⁄4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1⁄4 tsp smoked paprika

Burger Bun Croutons

  • 4 burger buns
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp nutritional yeast
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper

Salad

  • 100g dairy-free Red Leicester
  • 300g iceberg lettuce
  • 2 large gherkins
  • 1 banana shallot
  • 12 cherry tomatoes
  • Sesame seeds

Equipment

  • 2 baking trays lined with parchment
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Small mixing bowl
  • Squeezy bottle (if you have one)
  • Large salad bowl

Method

  1. 1.

    Preheat oven to 200°C

  2. 2.

    First, prepare the burgers. Put the burgers on the baking tray and cook according to packet instructions. Take them out of the oven and cut into bite sized chunks.

  3. 3.

    Now, prepare your burger bun croutons. Cut the buns into 1 inch cubes. Put the olive oil, nutritional yeast, mixed herbs, garlic powder and a pinch of salt and pepper in a bowl and stir to combine. Add the bread to the bowl and toss to combine. Tip the bread out onto a baking sheet, put the sheet in the oven and bake for 8 minutes until toasted.

  4. 4.

    Prepare the dressing. Put all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir to combine. Transfer the sauce to a squeezy bottle (if you have one).

  5. 5.

    Make up your fresh salad. Grate the cheese. Trim and shred the lettuce. Dice the gherkins and cherry tomatoes. Peel and dice the shallots. Add all the salad ingredients (apart from the cheese) to a large salad bowl and toss to combine.

  6. 6.

    Now, prepare the warm elements of the cheeseburger salad and finish the prep. Take the burger bun croutons out of the oven. Add the burger pieces. Sprinkle over the cheese. Put the tray back in the oven and roast for 2 minutes.

  7. 7.

    Serve and dress. Serve the salad into 4 bowls. Sprinkle over the burger pieces and croutons, drizzle over the burger sauce and eat immediately.
