With vegan protein, you can make this delicious Vegan Impossible Whopper Copycat Recipe! You only need a handful of ingredients.
With all the excitement over Burger King’s Impossible Whopper, I thought I should try making it fully vegan! Even with all the talk about the burger being vegan, it actually isn’t! The vegan patty is often cooked on the same grill as the beef patties unless you request otherwise. It’s actually really easy to make at home.
- hamburger buns
- ground protein (like Beyond Beef or Impossible)
- vegan mayo
How to make a vegan Impossible Whopper?
- Mix ground protein with liquid smoke.
- When shaping the patty, make sure to press it hard so it stays together when cooking.
- Cook ground protein patty on a pan or in an oven.
- Assemble burger by placing the patty, pickles, onions, tomatoes, and lettuce in between two buns.
What is the Impossible Whopper made out of?
The Impossible Whopper has the same toppings as the regular Whopper, however, an Impossible Burger Patty replaces the normal beef patty. I used a ground protein by Earth Grown, available at Aldi’s stores.
Does it taste like a Whopper?
To achieve the flavor of a Whopper as best as you can, I recommend adding liquid smoke. Whopper’s characteristic flavor is flame-broiled, and the liquid smoke can help to achieve that. Additional spices like garlic powder or onion powder are optional but add great flavor.
What is vegan ground protein made out of?
Different brands use different plants as the main ingredient. I recommend checking the label on the packaging. The ground protein I used for this recipe had pea protein.
