In the sea of vegan burger recipe that you can find online, here is mine, trying to snuggle between the sea *jejeje. Owwh yeah, I am snuggling comfort now. I always curious how is the taste of vegan burger (not that I miss the meat), also knowing the chance of experimenting are enough to ignite me.


I already experimenting this recipe twice, to find texture that I like, the first experimenting were too soft for me, lack of texture, I used panko breadcrumb as one of an ingredient but it just not hit my palette then in my second tried I used this steel cut oatmeal and it hit out.


Also in the ingredient, I used Oyster mushroom, they key for building good texture here, I used good fresh oyster mushroom, but again you can used your mushroom preference, I used oyster mushroom because here are in season, cheap and juicy succulent, but mostly because it is cheap *hehe and fresh, also it is local *promote local produce for fresh, healthy and cheap.


So zip it, lets go get exciting on this experimental recipe
