Beyond Meat burgers are delicious and are as perfect with Saucí Verde as a regular burger. Cutting carbon footprint, kindness to animals, heart-health… whatever your reasons, this is a fantastic meal.

I’m in a low-carb lifestyle, but I want to reduce or eliminate some meat from my diet. We decided to try the Beyond Meat burgers and found them to be delicious! As you can see, I plate mine up with a regal salad of arugula, while my less carb-conscious family can indulge in a brioche bun.

The Beyond Meat burgers tasted, looked and felt great in the mouth. But to the point… Saucí Verde made a perfect condiment! The one I made for myself I dropped right on a large arugula salad, topped with some sharp cheddar, sauteed mushrooms, some quick-pickled onions (left over from the cauliflower tacos), and of course a tablespoon of Saucí Verde. Any way you do it, you won’t regret dressing up a burger with Saucí.

Of course, leave out the cheese to keep it vegan, or use your favorite vegan cheese.
