Veganism as a common lifestyle is more popular now than ever, but it can still be difficult to find a good restaurant that is vegan-friendly—let alone trying to make a meal. Today on both accounts, PLNT Burger has got you covered.
Dedicated to crafting and redefining some of America’s favorite foods to be vegan-friendly, PLNT Burger offers a variety of meals that everyone can enjoy, vegan or not. The restaurant is owned and founded by Spike Mendelsohn, who Top Chef fans might recognize from Season 4 in Chicago and Top Chef: All-Stars Season 8, and counts locations in Washington D.C., Virginia and Maryland. The chain is also about to open its first location in New York City on Jan. 24, just steps away from Union Square.
Even if you aren't near a PLNT Burger location, you can still enjoy its popular vegan chili, because Chef Mendelsohn has agreed to share the step-by-step recipe with our readers.
"Chili has always been a go-to recipe to make at home when temperatures start to drop and I want something both warm, filling and delicious." said PLNT Burger Co-Founder Spike Mendelsohn. "Instead of using ground turkey or beef, the PLNT chili calls for Beyond Meat resulting in the same flavor and texture. Another bonus is you can store this in the fridge for up to a week."
This recipe serves four, and if you want to substitute Beyond Meat for your personal favorite plant-based protein, feel free to make this chili your own. You can even get crafty and pour the chili over your favorite fries, roasted vegetables, or anything at all!
