Vegan In-N-Out Burger Knockoff Is Making Dreams Come True
There are two very clear sides in the vegan world; those who like replications of meaty dishes, and those who don’t. I fall in to the former category, and am pretty excited to see someone making a vegan version of the cult classic In-N-Out Double Double burger.
Chef Jeremiah Tydeman and GM John Ferguson of Alvarado Street Brewery in Monterey California have introduced a new burger menu, and the vegan double double is their only meat-free option of five new specialties. However, the unique offering is garnishing the most attention! The restaurant gets dozen of orders for the burger nightly, a favourite among the staff as well.
Like it’s predecessor, it’s comprised of two house-made mock-meat patties, that are a mix of Bob’s Red Mill textured vegetable protein, whole wheat flour, large flake nutritional yeast and vital wheat gluten. That’s topped with Follow Your Heart soy cheese, grilled onions, lettuce, tomato and more secrets – the animal-sauce knockoff. With the sort of soft, fast food bun you’d expect, this craving crusher is high on our “to eat” list.
A regular of the restaurant named Brian Sanford is to blame for this foodgasm, as he supplied the recipe. And now, he’s supplied us with a dream – to get to California as soon as possible.
There’s no denying that each and every rip-off recipe makes it just a little bit easier for people to go vegan, and stay vegan. Now, can we get it protein style?
