In celebration of the London Ribfest, chef James McInnes put together a vegan alternative to the classic Big Mac fast food burgers popularized by McDonald's using a plant-based patty made from chickpeas. The vegan burgers, called the Big MacInnes, are complete with dairy-free condiments that replicate the taste and texture of the meat version using natural ingredients.
The burger contains a chickpea patty that is served with vegan thousand island dressing, dairy-free cheese, lettuce, cucumber and onions. The burger is double stacked, just like the cult Big Mac is.
The Big MacInnes burgers sold out entirely in two days. This speaks to how fast food eateries can tap simultaneously into the vegan and non-vegan market by recreating classic dishes using plant-based ingredients.
