What is vegan burger dressing?

Burger sauce is traditionally a pinky or orange coloured, tangy sauce that gives heaps of flavour and deliciousness to a burger.

The colour is given from the blend of mayonnaise, ketchup and some other herbs and spices.

It’s also an awesome condiment to have for potato wedges, sandwiches on tacos, chips, loaded fries and vegan hot dogs.

Vegan Mayonnaise

This veggie burger sauce uses ready made, shop bought mayonnaise which is most convenient.

There are literally so many vegan mayonnaise brands out there now, which is awesome as it gives us a lot more choice.

I personally love Just Mayo as they are a fully vegan company. For the ultimate creamy and delicious vegan mayonnaise, perfect for this recipe, buy Just Mayo here.

However many people choose to make their own plant based mayo too – like this awesome creamy vegan mayo recipe here. This particular one is plant based and oil free – which works great for those on a more whole foods path.

Liquid Smoke

Discovering Liquid Smoke in recent years has revolutionised my cooking. I am a big fan of smoky flavoured foods and it adds so much depth.

This is one of the secret ingredients of this vegan burger relish. You simply can’t beat that hickory flavour.

Plant Based BBQ

If you are hosting a fully vegan BBQ – I urge you to check out all of our delicious recipes which would make your vegan BBQ a roaring success.

There is honestly nothing more that excites me more than a sunny summers day with amazing vegan colourful salads to compliment a host of plant based goodness on the BBQ.

This veggie burger sauce would obviously make it special, but you must also check these deliciously flavoured vegan souvlaki, tasty vegan BBQ tortas and grilled corn on the cob.
