ABOUT APPLEWOOD® VEGAN

Applewood® Vegan is a dairy free cheese alternative that shares the same smooth creamy texture & smoky taste of its famous dairy classic.

It is the innovative result of a collaboration between Applewood®, making it the first major British cheese brand to launch a vegan cheese alternative and VBites, the UK's pioneering and award-winning plant-based food company owned by vegan businesswoman Heather Mills.

After cooks and nutritionists spent two years researching and improving different recipes, Applewood® Vegan was launched! It is now available exclusively in 238 Asda stores nationwide, The Vegan Kind Supermarket Online and AlternativeStores.com as well as selected food service outlets. In January 2020, it will be rolled out to all other food retailers and the entire food service.

JOIN US #flexifriday

A lot has changed in the past 10 years since the introduction of Meat-Free Monday. Principally climate change, and because of that crisis, Applewood® believes that it is no longer enough for us to follow a climate-friendly diet on just one day a week.

So that's why we are instituting another day of climate-friendly abstinence from meat and dairy products, the Flexi Friday. Following a flexitarian style diet is easy and the introduction of Applewood® Vegan into our range, means no one has to miss out on the great taste of Applewood® cheese on those two days a week that you eat a plant-based diet.

Check out this page for some great tips, advice and recipes to keep you on track!

APPLEWOOD® VEGAN DELUXE BURGER


MAKES 4 BURGERS
INGREDIENTS:
  • 400g can chickpeas
  • 200g can sweet corn, ideally with mixed peppers
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 large garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 handful of fresh coriander, washed and chopped
  • 3 tbs plain flour, plus a little extra for shaping
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Oil for frying
  • 4 of your favourite vegan burger buns
  • 4 slices of Applewood® Vegan
  • Slices of tomato, salad leaves and relish

   

  1. Drain the chickpeas and corn and tip both into a food processor, then pulse until they breakdown but there is still some coarse texture. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Heat a little oil in a frying pan and saute the onion for 2-3 minutes before adding the garlic. Cook for another minute, and then add the spices and fry for one more minute
  3. Add the fried spice mix to the chickpeas and corn.
  4. Add the fresh coriander, flour and salt to the mix everything together with a fork.
  5. Divide the burger mix into 4 equal portions and, using floured hands and on a lightly floured board, shape each into burgers approximately 8-9cm in diameter and 2cm thick.
  6. Place the burgers onto a plate, cover with cling and chill for at least 20 minutes.
  7. When you're ready to serve, heat a little oil in a frying pan and cook the burgers over a medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown and piping hot
  8. Place the burgers onto the bottom of the buns, top with Applewood® Vegan slices, tomato, salad and relish.
    Top off the bun and enjoy!
