This Insane Korean-Inspired Burger Is The Perfect Evening Meal

By Jennifer Barton, Commercial Editor, HuffPost UK

We can all agree there’s no better dinner – or late-night meal – than burgers: mouth-watering, juicy and decadent, they’re the edible equivalent of blasting our favourite musical track on repeat.

They’re a classic go-to choice, whether you’re cooking for a date or your flatmates. No matter how the rest of the night pans out, at least we know everyone’s going to be very chuffed about what they’re getting on the food front.

It’s only natural that legendary quarter pounders are a staple in Naked Glory‘s arsenal – they taste as delicious fried in a pan as they do grilled on the barbecue.

Cheating on meat has never been easier – or more popular, as we’re all trying to explore ways to cut back on eating meat, for health and eco reasons.

“Whilst meat eating has its benefits, it can be good to opt for a couple of non meat meals per week,” advises Daniel O’Shaughnessy, a nutritionist based in London and Berkshire who runs The Naked Nutritionist.

“Some choose meat-free Mondays, which can be a way to make it more fun for the family, introducing them to a new variety of foods.”

There are benefits to having less meat, for both your body and the planet.

“You’re more likely to eat more plants and vegetables which can support health and lower risk of diseases with more vitamins, minerals and fibre, and you can support environmental factors so can have benefits to the mind and doing your bit,” says O’Shaughnessy.

The recipe below adds a zesty Korean slaw for another healthy twist on the classic burger dish, with fresh, shredded carrots, cabbage, onions and coriander. This recipe also includes zesty corn pops for a new take on corn on the cob – just add Indonesian cupboard staple, Kecap Manis, for a tangy salty-sweet marinade.

Meat free meals are just as flavour-packed, tantalising and succulent as their carnivorous counterparts – you just need to know which brand to choose.

Naked Glory’s Quarter Pounders are total legends, The Meatiest Thing Since Meat. Want to try your own meat-free Quarter Pounders with tangy Korean-inspired sides? We’ve got the recipe for you below…
