Vegan burger and nuoc cham slaw 8/6/21

Incogmeato burger with Vietnamese inspired slaw

John and I saw these Incogmeato burgers made by Morningstar at the grocery store and we thought we would give them a try. They are a nice size and at 250 calories are not over-the-top fattening. John cooked it in a pan according to the instructions of 4 minutes on each side which cooked it through. The pinkness is due to vegetable and fruit juice in the mix. Did it taste like meat? Not exactly but it did not taste like your typical bean burger either. I like that the burger covers the entire area of the bun. We toasted the buns and served them with red onion and ketchup.

To go along with the burger I made a slaw from cabbage, carrots, onion, and Fresno chile with a nuoc cham dressing. Nuoc cham is a combination of fish sauce, lime juice, water, sweetener, and garlic powder. I also added a little soy sauce and a few drops of sesame oil. It made a tasty slaw.

Would we eat this plant-based burger again? John is a maybe and I am more interested in trying a different brand to see if something else will taste more like a hamburger. I also like veggie burgers that taste like vegetables so I might go that route if I am looking for an alternative to meat. In any case this was a really simple dinner to make and that may play a role in our decision-making in the future.
