Towards the end of Vegan MoFo, Vegusto offered ten bloggers the chance to receive a free New Customers Special and come up with a recipe using several or all of the products included. If you’re interested, this pack is available for the very reduced price of £10.00 on the Vegusto website, including next day delivery!
As one of the lucky winners, I received my parcel on Tuesday and got straight to work! My package contained:
200g No Moo Melty
2 Mushroom Burgers
90g Mild ‘Cheese’
90g Piquant ‘Cheese’
115g Farmhouse Sausage
I didn’t use all the products in my recipe, because I thought that might be a bit of a flavour overload, but instead opted for the melting cheese and the burgers.
I’ve been seeing a lot of recipes for cheeseburger bakes on the internet and thought this would be the perfect thing to veganise using the products I was sent.
150g pasta, cooked according to package instructions
1 bundle swiss chard
2 Vegusto Mushroom Burgers
100g Vegusto No Moo Melty
1 tin plum tomatoes
1 tsp oregano
salt & pepper
Place your cooked pasta into a glass dish. In a small bowl, crush the plum tomatoes with your hands until they are very fine (I had to get used to this, smooshing tomatoes between your fingers is a bit strange…) and mix them with the swiss chard (or any leafy green of your choice), salt, pepper and oregano. Spread the entire mixture over your pasta. Crumble both burgers into the dish and give everything a good mix, making sure that all your pasta is coated in sauce. Lastly, cut the cheese into chunks and sprinkle on top. Bake at 200°C for 20 minutes and enjoy!
Sorry about the awful photo, all the light had gone by the time I pulled the Cheeseburger Pasta Bake out of the oven! As you can see, the cheese doesn’t spread too much, but it tastes like melted mozzarella. Yum.
