Impossible Burger

STARS

Never thought you’d ENJOY (or even try) another veggie burger?!? The triumphantly meatless patty from Impossible Foods touts everything meat-eaters yearn for in a beef burger. The secret ingredient “heme” gives it a trademark sizzle on the grill and glorious beef flavor. Finish it off with vegan herb aioli, pickled red onions, crisp veggies, and a flavorful harissa vinaigrette (if desired). Thought it was impossible? Think again.
