We're flying through summer—and your excellent feedback on our quest for The Best Meatless Burger—one that is vegan, grillable, and easy-to-make ahead of time or on-the-fly from pantry ingredients. To everyone who has participated so far, thank you for sharing so many ideas, comments, and recipes. Now let's put a bow on that bun.
For anyone just joining us, back in May, we announced The Bittman Project's first crowd-sourcing recipe experiment, an adventure we dubbed Burgerville. We included two baseline patties — one grillable, one for cooking in a pan — along with suggestions for how to participate. Since then there we hosted a community conversation, posted a mid-summer update, and we've been collecting your thoughts here, on social media, and via email.
We're getting ready to share a slew of spins, cheers, gripes, and workarounds for dietary concerns — all in one big sharable package. Your opinions matter! Are you with us? Add your two-cents and last-minute ideas by Monday, August 23, via Facebook, or in the comments below.
Not much of a contribution as a request for a vegan gluten and soy-free burger. More importantly the former :) x
I love mushrooms so mushroom based ,maybe with chickpeas and /or lentils, some tahini for more richness. I don't generally add herbs to my meat nased burgers, but you can't go wrong with sage and mushrooms!
