Beyond Meat Burger Recipe

Beyond Meat Spring Burger

If you have never tried The Beyond Meat Burger, I insist you do it today. This vegan burger rivals any beef burger I have eaten. We created ours with caramelized onions and an aioli sauce. The results were amazing!


  • 4 beyond burger patties, 2 packages.
  • 3 cups of arugula
  • caramelized onions, recipe below
  • 4 slices of cheese of your choice, we used Jarlsberg lite.
  • 4 hamburger buns, we used pretzel hamburger buns.
  • garlic aioli

Plant-based Caramelized Onions Recipe:

  • 1 tablespoon of vegan butter or olive oil cooking spray
  • 1 large yellow or red onion
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons of fresh thyme

Plant-based garlic aioli:

  • 2/3 cup of vegan mayonnaise
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 2-3 tablespoons of water (optional to thin)


Vegan Caramelized Onion Instructions:

  1. Over medium-low heat, melt the vegan butter in a thick-bottomed stainless steel or cast iron pan, or coat the pan with olive oil cooking spray.
  2. Add the sliced onions and cook for 10 minutes to soften.
  3. Add a pinch of the salt and the sugar, then reduce the heat and continue to cook the onions for 30 minutes to 1 hour until they are deep amber in color and caramelized.
  4. Stir them often enough so that they don’t burn, but not so much that they won’t brown.
  5. Finish off with the balsamic vinegar, thyme and garlic.
  6. Cook for an additional 3 minutes and set aside.

Vegan Garlic Aioli Instructions:

  1. Add the vegan mayonnaise, garlic, lemon juice and sea salt to a blender or food processor. Process until smooth.
  2. Scrape down the sides and then add as much water as needed. Blend and repeat until desired consistency is reached.
  3. Refrigerate in an airtight container until ready to use. Vegan aioli will last up to seven days in the refrigerator.

Burger Instructions

  1. Cook the beyond burger according to package instructions.
  2. 2-3 minutes before the patty is finished cooking add a slice of the cheese and allow it to melt. Covering the frying pan speeds this up.
  3. Toast the hamburger buns for 2-3 minutes in the pan. Top with the beyond burger patty followed by caramelized onions and fresh arugula.
  4. Spread the garlic aioli on top half of bun half and enjoy!
