3 Dishes to Make With an Impossible Foods Burger....Besides a Burger

Choo and Roo

By now you may (or may not) know of the Impossible Foods brand. For those of you who haven’t, Impossible foods was founded in 2011 by Dr. Patrick O’Brown. They make their meat, dairy, and fish directly from plants—and yes it tastes bomb. Their site states:

“Impossible Burger uses 96% less land, 87% less water, and produces 89% fewer greenhouse gas emissions.”

Having good food while saving the environment?!! Sign us up!! Here are 3 dishes we love to make with the below impossible burger!

7) Once the meatballs are done place into the crockpot and cover for an additional 10 minutes to coat the sauce.
