In previous years, the burger options for vegan and vegetarian consumers available from stores and restaurants have been limited to soy patties—but the rise of the plant-based eating movement has inspired plenty of innovation in this realm that includes vegetable and fruit burger patties.
Many brands have developed satisfactory burger patty alternatives with ingredients such as ancient grains, jackfruit and beans, but Ducks Eatery is now taking a unique approach with a most unexpected ingredient—melon.
The smoked cantaloupe burger is said to boast a meat-like patty that is similar in taste and texture to real meat. To prepare the melon, Ducks Eatery cures, ferments, smokes, slow-bakes, dehydrates and sears the fruit over the course of two days to create its inventive meat substitute.
