I made this up shortly after making my second batch of my vegan unprocessed cheese slices. It's amazing. Tasted just like I remember cheeseburgers tasting like but in a crispy fried wrap which just makes it even better. Damn. Vegan junk food at it's finest :-P
Obviously, you can put whatever you would normally like in a burger in this wrap. My favourite fast food burger "back in the day" was A&W's "teen burger" as it had, in my opinion, the holy trinity of burger ingredients in it: pickle, onion and mustard. Hence why I've gone for that here, and a few slices of vegan bacon wouldn't have gone amiss either ;-)
Pan-Fried Vegan Cheeseburger Wrap
• 50g frozen soy mince (I use Tesco own label)
• 1 shallot, or a couple tablespoons finely chopped onion.
• 1 small clove garlic, finely chopped
• pinch of smoked sea salt
• 5 grinds of black pepper
• 1 tsp vegetable oil
• 1 large white wrap
• 1 slice Vegan Unprocessed Cheese.
• lettuce, preferably iceberg.
• dill pickle slices
• yellow mustard (French's)
• a little extra oil to fry, no more than a teaspoon.
Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the soy mince, shallot or onion and garlic. Fry over low heat until it starts to get dry then add about 50ml water. Cook until the water is fried off, soy mince is cooked and onions are soft.
Warm the wrap up briefly in a dry frying pan so it's pliable. In the centre add some lettuce leaves and the mince mixture. Top with a cheese slice cut in half diagonally then the pickles and some yellow mustard.
Fold both ends over then roll up burrito style. Heat another bit of oil in a pan, I used the same pan I fried the mince in then add the wrap, pressing down to flatten slightly. Keep the heat high, you just want to crisp up the outside and melt the cheese, not wilt the lettuce. Flip over when golden and repeat, again pressing down with a spatula. Transfer to a chopping board and slice in half diagonally. Done.

Vegan Cheese Dog
...And in continuing in my quest to make more vegan junk food, the vegan cheese dog! I've taken this photo from the daily blog where I was thoroughly enjoying these daily until I ran out of cheese slices :-)
Simply melt one unprocessed cheese slice onto a hot dog bun (I used the grill) and fill with your favourite vegan hot dog (I use Fry's) then top with a relish made with tangy dill pickles finely chopped with onion and lots of French's mustard. Delicious!
