Impossible™ Burger is meat, made from plants, that cooks and sizzles like ground beef from cows.* It’s a 1:1 substitute that can be used in any recipe, from burgers to tacos, chili, ravioli, dumplings, and anything you can come up with really! We spent years researching what makes meat taste like meat (hint it’s a molecule called heme(opens in a new tab)) and then created our cult classic by using a variety of plant-based ingredients, vitamins and minerals. One thing we made sure not to include? Wheat.
Impossible Burger is certified gluten free so that if you have a wheat allergy, you can still enjoy our mouthwatering meat made from plants. While there are a lot of Impossible Burger fans out there that use it in recipes containing gluten, we still have plenty of choices for tasty, gluten-free recipes that are ideal for those with gluten sensitivities. Here are five of our top gluten-free recipes with Impossible Burger. We fully recommend trying them all!
What is larb, you ask? This traditional meat salad originated in Laos and enjoys widespread popularity in Thailand as well. It’s easy to understand why: fresh, bright, and colorful, larb boasts an amazing blend of robust spices and flavors that come together to create something utterly unique. You also get to make your own roasted rice powder during the process. Don’t worry, it’s easy to make—just make sure you have a spice grinder on hand. If you don’t, this recipe alone makes it worth acquiring one.
Served alone or on beds of lettuce leaves, we’re confident you’ll join the growing list of Impossible Burger fans who have added larb to their regular rotation of meals when they’re craving something outside of the ordinary.
Chili with Impossible Burger? Absolutely. Chili with Impossible Burger and three different varieties of beans? Why not? Impossible Burger is the perfect companion to the robust flavors and spices you’ll find in his rich and hearty recipe.
This recipe also features a secret weapon: a cilantro-lime crema that provides the perfect balance to the spicy acidity of the chili. It takes just a minute to whip up, so don’t skip out on it. For those who like a little more heat, feel free to toss in some extra cayenne or perhaps a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce. Who knows? You may inspire yourself to dominate the next chili cook-off near you?
Stuffed peppers are a classic comfort food that may seem hard to improve upon, but believe us: they’re even better when stuffed with the savory, juicy taste of Impossible Burger. With just a few simple ingredients, these peppers are filling, easy to make, and, of course, gluten-free.
This recipe comes by way of Chef Mimi, an Oakland-based chef renowned for her soul food recipes—many of which are inspired by her grandmother, whom she describes as “one of those old souls who makes everybody feel loved through her dishes.” And now it’s your turn to do the same. Seasoned rice, a blend of Italian cheeses, and a rich tomato sauce provide the ideal accompaniment to the generous portion of Impossible Burger that helps elevate this dish to new levels.
As for the peppers, it’s all up to you. Green, yellow, red, or orange, choose the combination you see fit and roll with it. Want to toss in some extra cheese? No brainer. Not a scallion person? Great, simply leave them off. There are no rules. Well, except for one: just make sure you serve these with love.
If we’re being honest, this recipe is basically a great excuse to enjoy Haven’s Kitchen’s tasty Herby Chimichurri Sauce. For those who may not be familiar with chimichurri sauce, it’s a fresh, uncooked sauce typically made from parsley, oregano, garlic, vinegar, olive oil, and flakes of chili pepper, served on grilled meats. It also happens to go great with Impossible Burger. Want more good news? You can serve these lettuce cups in just 20 minutes.
While swapping lettuce for a bun sometimes has lackluster results for some dishes, this recipe was made to shine with crisp, fresh lettuce serving as the perfect backdrop to the flavors layered on top. The simplicity is what makes it all work: Impossible Burger seasoned with Haven’s Kitchen’s Herby Chimichurri Sauce and topped with cabbage, peppers, avocado, and parsley, plus one more splash of the chimichurri sauce on the very top.
If you’re looking for some new flavor combinations to enjoy, you definitely need to give this easy recipe a go.
Tofu fans: it’s your turn. This spicy dish is among the most popular of Sichuan foods, and now it’s even better with Impossible Burger. The versatility of tofu and Impossible Burger collide with spices such as chili paste and Szechuan peppercorns to bring you a meal that practically becomes an experience when all is said and done.
Hints of garlic, ginger, and a dose of umami from the Tamari sauce (a great gluten free alternative to soy sauce) help to round out the bold and spicy flavors emanating from each bite, all piled onto a bed of rice to soak it all up. Hungry yet? You should be. If you’re a little hesitant to cook with tofu at home, don’t worry, you’ve got this! We’ve included some easy tips in the recipe instructions to help ensure your tofu turns out perfectly. Now’s the time to give it a shot—and you’ll love the results.
