We love the flavors of a classic caprese salad here at Impossible Foods, and wanted to cook up a fresh and tasty grilling recipe that utilized those perfect summer ingredients. This Impossible™ Beef Caprese Skewers recipe served with burrata cheese and a lemon basil vinaigrette is the perfect addition to any summer BBQ menu, with bold, crowd-pleasing flavors, and easy preparation.

Get the whole family involved with forming the meatballs and assembling the skewers! And by making the skewers and vinaigrette in advance, all you'll need to do is fire up the grill, kiss these tasty meatballs and tomatoes with some fire, and then serve alongside some decadent burrata and bright lemon basil dressing. YUM.

6 steps
  1. Season the Impossible Beef

    In a bowl, combine the Impossible Beef, 2 cloves of minced garlic, red pepper flakes, 1 teaspoon each of thyme, oregano, and basil, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Mix until incorporated. Form 16 equally portioned meatballs, and pack tightly. Keep cold until building your skewers for easier handling.

  2. Assemble the Skewers

    To assemble, alternate Impossible Beef mixture and cherry tomatoes (1 meatball, 2 tomatoes, 1 meatball, 2 tomatoes) on a 6 inch skewer for a total of 8 skewers. Once assembled, store back in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or prepare skewers the night before and chill overnight. It's best to sear them on the grill when they’re very cold!

  3. Make the Vinaigrette

    Whisk together the remaining 2 cloves minced garlic and 1 tsp each of the fresh herbs, dijon, agave, lemon juice and, and 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  4. Prepare the Cheese

    Cut burrata open and spread loosely over the bottom of a platter. For a fully plant-based version of this recipe, omit the cheese, or substitute with a soft, plant-based cheese of your choice.

  5. Grill the Impossible Beef

    Set your grill to 375-400°F or medium-high heat, and allow to preheat. Straight from the refrigerator, drizzle some oil over the skewers, and place skewers down on the grill. Cook for about 2.5-3 minutes per side, flipping once during grilling, for a total cooking time of 5-6 mins total. The Impossible Beef will be medium inside.

  6. Serve and Enjoy

    Move the warm skewers to the serving platter prepared with burrata, and pour the vinaigrette over the skewers. Garnish with freshly torn basil. Enjoy!
