When I heard about the Impossible Burger a few months ago, I knew I had to try it. It is made completely from plants, yet is supposed to cook, smell, look, and taste just like a real beef burger. Could this be possible? I really wanted to know.
The photos of the burger patty look like it’s made of real beef, and I’d expect it taste as such:
Unfortunately, though the Impossible Burger looked like and had the same texture as a beef burger, it didn’t taste like beef. That was clear from the first bite. Instead, it had a soy/nutty/bean flavor that I couldn’t quite put my finger on.
I’d like to give the Impossible Burger a whirl but doesn’t look like they’ve made it to the United Kingdom yet.
