THE BEST VEGAN BURGER | Recipe by Mary’s Test Kitchen


Hello friends and not yet friends, Welcome back to Mary’s Test Kitchen, where
we’re making vegan food fun again. This time, making vegan burgers even more
fun than they already are. This burger is meaty. Toothsome. Actually juicy. And perfect for grilling outdoors or indoors. The kind of hearty high protein burger that
will actually keep you full. Veggie burger lovers, you know what I mean. Before we begin, I’d like to give a special
thanks to today’s sponsor: Four Sigmatic, the company that makes superfood mushrooms
a little less weird and actually delicious by blending functional mushrooms like Reishi,
Chaga, Cordyceps, and Lion’s Mane, as well as other superfoods into coffee, matcha and
other tasty drinks. Use the link in the description and get 15%
off your first order from Four Sigmatic. Our first order of business for making the
juiciest vegan burgers is getting the ingredients together. The base of the burger will be vital wheat
gluten which is mainly protein but it needs flavour and colour. Beginning with beets from a can into a blender. Also for color but more so for taste, tomato
juice drained from a can of whole tomatoes. Tomatoes are naturally high in glutamate which
is responsible for making foods taste mouth wateringly good. We’ll need some water to help everything blend
together. Add paprika and black pepper. Next, dried porcini mushoom that I blended
into a powder. That’s another glutamate bomb. If porcini isn’t easy for you to get, try
shiitake instead. Then concentrated vegetable base. You can use whatever type you like. Just use the equivalent meant to make 3 cups
of broth according to your package. Last but not least, and in fact very essential
to cut the wheaty wheat flavour of gluten: balsamic vinegar. And blend. Blend until there are no more visible chunks
of beets and the mixture is pretty smooth and looks a little violent. But it’s not actually, so calm down you over
there about to type plants have feelings in the comments below. I see you. Then we’ll mix in the vital wheat gluten. Also know as gluten flour, this stuff is super
fine and flies around everywhere so be gentle with it. After that’s mixed in, add more but hold back
some. Depending on the moisture in the beets and
perhaps the level of fiber in the tomato juice, sometimes you don’t need as much flour or
you might need a smidge more. Let’s see. The dough should be soft but not squishy with
wetness. It will get more tough as you knead it over
a few minutes. Not too long. If your dough looks wetter than this or feels
really soft, you can knead in a little more gluten. Next divide the dough. For big thick restaurant style burgers, divide
into 6. I’m using a scale for exactness but you of
course don’t have to. Because these are your vegan burgers and there are no rules. After you have your dough balls, you’ll want
to knead them a little more. Form them into tighter balls by kneading the
edges towards the middle. This will help them maintain their shape while
cooking. I also want some thinner fast food style burgers
so I’ll divide the last two into four. Finally, let’s roll these out so they get
wider and flatter, keeping in mind that these will double in size after cooking. This dough likes to spring back. Just keep going and show that gluten who’s
boss. That would be you, by the way. This will do. Time to cook. I’ve got my biggest pot with a bit of veggie
broth in it. Add the burgers. Then cover them completely with more veggie
broth. Turn up the heat and bring the broth to a
simmer. But watch this like a hawk. You don’t want to let it come to a rolling
boil. Turn the heat down to low, cover, and let
the burgers simmer in there for an hour. The steady simmer will cook the burgers and
infuse them with tasty broth so they’ll come out juicy. But if you let this boil rapidly, the seitan
will quickly turn to mushy brains. You can also cook these in the oven instead
which is a little easier. Just cover them in broth in a roasting pan
or dutch oven. Cover and bake for an hour at 350°F. Either
way, you’ll want to flip the stacks of burgers upside down halfway through. And at this point, you deserve a break. You worked hard. How about a matcha frappe? I used to work at a coffee shop where I learned
the secret of why matcha frappes tasted so good. But first, the matcha itself. Matcha is really whole green tea, ground up
so it retains every good thing about tea. Caffeine for a little pep but also L-theanine,
a relaxing amino acid so the kick is balanced. You can use whatever matcha is in your cupboards
but this Four Sigmatic blend also has Lion’s Mane for it’s brain-boosting effects, astragalus
which is used as an adatogen, and ginger for good digestion. Which is nice because the secret to creamy
delicious matcha frappes is ice cream. Coffee shops often use ice cream milk, a blend
that is made to pour into ice cream makers to make ice cream. It’s super high in fat and sugar. There’s no vegan version so let’s use your
favourite vegan vanilla ice cream. The creamier the better. And blend. You can add a little vanilla milk if you like
or just let your blender do all the work. And there you have it. Add some coconut whip if you like and finish
with a little extra matcha. And enjoy until the weather turns cold. Which it did the day I filmed this actually. It snowed. But I’ll still pretend it’s warm. So this drink feels refreshing instead of turning me into a popsicle. When your burgers are cooked, they’ll have
expanded. I added some broth midway so that’s why there’s
still so much broth but yours might be poking out. That’s okay as long as you flipped them. Now they can go straight on the grill or you
can store them. Make sure you do store them in broth so they
stay juicy. Three to five days in the fridge or you can
freeze them for up to two months. Even though there was snow on the balcony,
I braved the elements for you. If it’s still grilling season where you are,
heat up your grill to about 450-500°F-ish and lay them out. Brush the burgers on both sides with oil. I’m using olive oil infused with fresh crushed
garlic for extra flavour. You could add your favourite burger seasoning
if you want, of course. Let me know what kind of herb and spice blends
you like best in the comments below. Since these are already fully cooked, you
just want to get some colour on without drying them out. But unlike other vegan burgers, these aren’t
that easy to dry out. Especially if you keep basting them. I grilled these about four minutes each side. My gas was running out so only one side really
got the char on but you get the idea. Inside, I got the buns and fillings ready. For a thick burger, you really want a good
sized bun. Preferably toasted on the inside for that
soft versus crunchy textural experience. And on they go. Isn’t that glorious? Meaty. Juicy. Can you see that juiciness? It’s no ordinary vegan burger. Yes, you put a lot of work into it. But it’s worth it. So worth it that the next day, you got to
put some more burgers on the grill. This time, an indoor grill pan because it’s
too cold and you’re out of propane. You do the same thing with the oil baste. These burgers are practically fat free otherwise. While they’re on the grill, get yer burger
stuff ready. Why not go for a double decker? Get your sesame seed buns toasted. For each, you’ll need a whole bun, top and
bottom, and another bottom for the middle. The top is the crown, one of the bottoms becomes
the middle (aka the club) and the actual bottom is called the heel. Did I ever tell you I worked at McDonald’s
during high school. Let’s make some vegan big macs. The special sauce is vegan mayo, paprika,
chopped pickles, onion powder, garlic powder, a smidge of mustard, and a splash of vinegar. Then rehydrated previously dried onions. You can find them in the spice aisle. Then shredded lettuce. I’m using the wrong lettuce to be honest. Iceberg is the real thing. Is green leaf lettuce slightly more nutritious? I think so. Two pickles go on the club, then a slice of
cheese on the heel. I’m using a homemade vegan cheddar that I’m
working on. It’s not quite ready yet but feel free to
subscribe and hit that notification button so you’ll know when I’m 100% happy with it
and ready to share. And I’m such a pro that this took 30 seconds
and the burger patties aren’t ready yet. Better make some drinks. Like this mushroom lemonade. Doesn’t look like any other lemonade mix I’ve
tried before. But it’s pretty cool. You can just add regular water. But c’mon, that’s not especially fun. Let’s add sparkling water. It’s sugar free and doesn’t taste sugar free. Tastes super good. While the soda’s out, let’s try another one. I had this mushroom elixer hot already as
a tea and it really reminds me of an herbal drink I enjoyed growing up called Hak Gu Cho. Sorry, I don’t know the english name. Anyways, I thought it would be perfect in
rootbeer. And I was right. What can I say, I’m kind of a genius. Now them burgers are ready and all we’re missing
is fries. But you won’t miss anything for long because… This is what vegan burger dreams are made
of. Two all wheat patties, special sauce, lettuce,
cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun. Sorry, I couldn’t resist. I really hope you make these burgers. Thick or thin. Pub style or fast food style. Grilled outdoors or in. Unless you’re gluten-free I guess, in which
case, please be patient with me…I’m working on a gf version. Not there yet but I will not give up! Because I love you too. You know who you are. Again, thank you so much to Four Sigmatic
for supporting this video.They have so many awesome products that make superfood mushrooms
fun again! Their site makes it easy to sort through the
benefits or the particular mushroom you’re looking for, or the type of drink you like
best. Like if you want to be more productive, focused,
and creative: try the Mushroom Coffee with Lion’s Mane. You might’ve seen my first impresson of this
on my last What I Ate video. Since then, it’s become my weekday morning
addiction! Then in the afternoon, I go for the matcha. Not usually blending with vegan ice cream. I love matcha and especially with astragalus
which I’m familiar with because it’s used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It’s used as an anti-inflammatory and I always
try to add anti-inflammatory foods to my diet because of my tendonitus issues. Plus it’s used to boost the immune system. Perfect for this time of year. If you can’t decide, there are sampler packs
so you can try a bunch. Remember you’ll get 15% off your first purchase
so get on it! Thanks so much for watching my friends. I really hope you enjoyed this extra long
video. Please give it a thumbs up if you did and
subscribe if you haven’t already for more vegan fun food. If you’re already subscribed thanks so much
for coming back again and again and supporting me especially my channel members who are helping
me with monthly support which I appreciate so so much. You guys are making a huge difference. Anyways, I love you all. Bye for now!

  1. I make my own veggie burger, but this looks great – I will try it! Thank you! G-d bless!

  2. can use the normal(?) seitan instead of the wheat?? sorry it's my first time making something vegan ahaha

  3. Oh. My. God. This veggie burger has solved all my cravings for meat. Period. It tasted and felt like a burger. I've been a little eh about seitan but you saved it for me. This is divine.

  4. Canned beets aren't really a thing where I live (Denmark). Is there some other way to get the beets, like cooking them yourself or using pickled beets? 🙂

  5. Do if I missed this, but do these freeze well? I am a household of 1 vegan and having these in the freezer would be so handy! Thanks for all your hard work and for sharing your personality with the viewers!

  6. Looking nice , but most of the ingredients not available in India . Can you simplify or give options please . Thanks

  7. Tried it two times. Unfortunatly i can´t recommend it. At first, i needed a lot more gluten flour to get it to the right consistency. Second the taste was not really good. I think because of the Seitan but i don´t know. Consistency was okay. PS: The first bites were like: "Awsome" but a few bites later there was an awful aftertaste to it.

  8. Newby to the channel and the burger looks great!! I'm not sure about the cheese, but the burger looks bomb!!

  9. I have finally received the ingredients, which is the hardest thing about this recipe… And I have just started stewing my meatyless pattys 😊

  10. I just found this and it looks amazing! I'd love to try it without tomato-any ideas to replace the canned tomato? (allergy)

  11. 1:21 "Tomato Juice drained from a can of whole tomatoes" – Is it different from regular tomato juice, which is what the written recipe calls for? Would a product like passata be better for this?

  12. 1:27 video says half cup + 2 tbsp, written recipe says 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp. I believe the 1/4 cup +2tbsp is correct since both places say 90mL.

  13. Be interesting to sit down with a Shaolin monk cook and talk vegan meat taste foods. Bet that cook would blow your mind and cause your tastebuds think your really eating meat. 😁👍

  14. Where do you get your stock base from? I tried this recipe and it didn't have a meaty flavor but it was JUICY🤷‍♀️it may be because I used a mushroom powder from trader joes that had the porcini mushroom powder in it. I will try shitake mushrooms next time. 🤔

  15. I made them and they came out chewy on the outside and tough in the middle. Did I not cook them long enough? Am I supposed to let them rest after cooking?

  16. What a great video! Thank you so much! Question: is there a healthier alternative for Gluten? I do not have a gluten sensitivity, just not sure if eating that regularly is a good idea?

    Any other kind of flour ok? Thanks!

    I plan to make this healthier by adding some greens in the mixture. Who cares it’s all going to mix up in the patty 🙂

  17. what kind of buns did you use and the mayo is it vegan too…Is the recipe for both the burger and mayo on line…and where do you get the vegan cheese….Thank you it looks all so good…

  18. That vege base is 15 bucks for a little jar. I guess if you have no budget, you can mix anything together for a great vegan burger.

  19. You use "Wheat" power, I think I will try "FuFu" power (Plantain or Coco, it will give the burger a thicken I like in my plant-based meats.

  20. Looks so good and I'm not vegan but since I'm open minded I'll have to try this after your vegan chicken nuggets or maybe I'll try this first and play a trick on my friends.. Anyone here not a vegan but tried this, curious what the textures like and does it taste like a real burger or close to it?

  21. Your recipes are all so good! You are my go to YouTube cooking sister. Every recipe of yours that I have tried has been total hits in my family! May the Creator of all good things bless you for sharing your wonderful recipes with the world!

  22. Do you have a gluten free version of this? I have celiac disease. Also any gluten free bun recipies? All the GF bread in stores really suck. Thank you..

  23. Hi Mary, thank you for your very interesting making this meat free burger video. I just have a couple of questions to ask you before I can going ahead to make my own meat free burger. I live in japan so it is very difficult usually to find many different types of ingredients. However, I am able to find beetroot in a jar and shiitake mushroom. But when you mention vegetable broth that is an impossible thing to find here. So my 2 questions are: Is there anything I could use or do to make up for the missing vegetable broth? and the next question is about the type of flour that you used. I did not quite understand it very well and in Japan we can only find All Purpose Flour. Thanks Mary and I look forward to hear from you soon. Regards John

  24. I came to this channel due to…. well, health reasons. what other flowers could possibly be used? I have celiacs disease, so the high gluten wheat flour is a no-go for me.

  25. Is there a way to freeze them without sticking together? I think you don't use vegetable broth when freezing them but nevertheless they stay together.

  26. Pls Can you make this without vital wheat gluten flour, can we make it with already made wheat gluten meat..we do not have the flour in my country..wd really appreciate ur kind comments on this.thanks dear for ur recipes, u make me a better vegan..I'm just missing some of these things made with the flour and wish I could get same with made from scratch wheat meat

  27. Mary! What a recipe! This is the best minus meat burger my wife and I have tasted! Here’s your recipe in action: https://youtu.be/lPUEQxbY_0U.
    We made half following your recipe and half we added a tsp of Worcestershire and 1/2 tsp of liquid smoke. When we put the on the cast iron I used clarified butter and some thyme. Thanks again! Will def be sharing this recipe.

  28. Hi – Plan a Vegan 2020 New Year so gathering information & this by far is the best-looking burger I've seen. Can you tell me if this recipe can be used or adjusted for vegan meatballs and or meatloaf?
