Like most red-blooded Americans, the apex meal in my dietary regimen is a hamburger. As much as I love ground beef, though, if I could find an acceptable substitute I would switch to it for health and environmental reasons. Hell, maybe it'll keep my cardiologist off my back for a while.
Enter the Impossible burger. Made entirely of plant proteins, it's purported to convincingly emulate ground beef in taste, texture, aroma, and mouthfeel. I haven't yet had the opportunity to try it, but when that opportunity arises, I'm keen to give it a shot.
