The Impossible Burger: Bloody, Delicious, and 100% Plant-based

For most of us, we grew up eating burgers. Whether at a friend’s birthday party, a backyard BBQ with friends, or even fancy restaurants, burgers have been a staple of our American culture. Few would ever think of tinkering with such a powerful brand, but the creators of Impossible Foods set out to do just that. This burger, however, is made entirely from plants. And yet, it bleeds.

Huh!? Come again? How could anyone do the impossible and create a burger made from plants that tastes just as good as burgers made from cows? Well, the Silicon Valley folks at IB did just that.

Amazing Foods of the Future We’ll All Be Eating SoonDon’t just take my word for it. Ask celebrity Chef David Chang (founder of the Momofuku restaurant empire), a purveyor of foie gras, pork belly, and just about every other kind of meat on the planet, what he thought when he sunk his teeth into this juicy miracle:

“Today I tasted the future and it was vegan: this burger was juicy/bloody and had real texture like beef. But more delicious and way better for the planet. I can’t really comprehend its impact quite yet…but I think it might change the whole game.” – Chef David Chang

The implications of The Impossible Burger are hard to comprehend. Right now, it takes over 600 gallons of water to make ONE hamburger. Wow. The Impossible Burger doesn’t use animals, so they can make it using 95% less land, 74% less water, and 87% less greenhouse gases. It also avoids you having to ingest any hormones or antibiotics (that’ll save you a lot of $ at the doctor’s office in future years!).

It’s now available at White Castle, TGI Fridays, and Bareburger. Add this baby to your foodie bucket list, you won’t be sorry. Just remember to thank me later 😉

    Pea milk? Hmmm… I love milk, but just ensure that it’s tastier than milk because I hate peas.

    Can you imagine if we don’t eat meat, and the animals’ population increase, what will happen to earth? Everything here is living with a purpose, don’t ruin that.

    The impossible burger is now possible. I tried this burger, and you can’t determine if it has meat, nor doesn’t contain one. It tastes one!

    • KELLY

      It should’ve named possible burger because they made it. Lol ?
