A guide to National Burger Day
Slammin’ Sriracha Burger from Linda McCartney’s
Linda McCartney’s & Avant-Garde Vegan have teamed up to create the ultimate in vegan feasting with the launch of their brand new ‘Slammin’ Sriracha’ Burger, perfect for National Burger Day. The recipe itself is loaded with lip-smacking goodness – oozing with spicy sriracha rainbow slaw and topped with crunchy cucumber ribbons, coriander and sesame seeds. The ultimate indulgence, that just so happens to be 100% vegan.
Moving Mountains Plant-Based B12 Burger at Maxwell’s
British brand, Moving Mountains allows you to bite into the future with its B12 Burger: it sizzles, smells, and tastes like meat but is completely plant-based. This is the UK’s first ever meatless ‘bleeding’ burger that was distributed to restaurants earlier this year.
The Quarter Hounder At Smith & Whistle
Smith & Whistle bar in Mayfair has launched a special burger just for dogs so that they don’t miss out on National Burger Day. The Quarter Hounder is a collaboration between the bar’s chef team and David Jackson, a specialist canine nutritionist, carefully constructed to be nutritionally valuable as well as a real treat for the pups. The burger is available from 23 August for one week only and is free with every ‘human’ burger.
