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 meI'm working on a gf version

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
