Shake Shack launches limited edition Vegan Crispy Shallot Burger in partnership with chef Neil Rankin
The is a light at the end of lockdown after all. To mark the 12th April reopening in signature style, Shake Shack is thrilled to introduce their fans and vegan friends to the Crispy Shallot Burger, a bespoke vegan patty created in collaboration with chef Neil Rankin, topped with smoky cheddar, beer-marinated crispy shallots, lettuce and tangy dijonnaise sauce on a toasted potato bun – all 100% vegan.
Made from roasted mushrooms and onion, miso, bulgur wheat and a blend of spices, Neil Rankin and Jim Frisch, Shake Shack’s director of culinary and product development, developed a vegan patty that is deeply savoury, with a subtle smokiness.
Rankin is excited to be collaborating with such an iconic brand: “With Shake Shack being a big influencer with my own plant-based burger journey, it was surreal and an honour to be involved in developing something original for them to use. I’ve always been a believer that umami, smoke and spice are the key to living our best life; and this is the ethos this patty is founded on. I think it is important for a burger to be made of real delicious food, not just weird powders and proteins, and that’s what you get, smashed on a grill and stuck in a bun with beer-marinated crispy shallots, dijonnaise and no compromises made.”
Jim Frisch is equally thrilled to be part of this development: “We couldn’t be more excited to bring this delicious burger to our Shack fans and vegan friends! Working with Chef Neil Rankin, we developed a one-of-a-kind vegan patty that delivers on everything we love about a great burger – decadent, juicy, satisfying and packed full of umami flavour. Our Crispy Shallot Burger is a new, plant-based twist on some of our Shack classics […] We can’t wait for you to try it!”
