Congratulations to Lindsey Burke for submitting the winning recipe in the Longève Build a Better Burger Challenge! Lindsey’s winning formula combines Longève Original Plant-based Protein Crumbles with robust spices and common pantry ingredients to create a hearty and satisfying burger patty that’s quick and easy to prepare. We’ve adapted her recipe to incorporate vital wheat gluten flour which gives the patty an appealingly toothsome texture, but feel free to use regular all-purpose flour instead. Serve these tasty patties with all your favorite fixings – we like piles of crisp leaf lettuce, sweet summer tomatoes and a blanket of melted cheese. Lindsey recommends Follow Your Heart’s Smoked Gouda slices and we couldn’t agree more! And while we’re at it, we might also suggest whipping up a piquant Pimènton Aioli using Follow Your Heart’s Original Vegenaise to take your burger to the next level. Simply mix ¼ cup Original Vegenaise with ½ teaspoon hot or sweet smoked paprika, ¼ teaspoon red wine vinegar 1 small clove of garlic, grated and a pinch of salt. Apply liberally to your Longève Better Burger and enjoy!


Plant-based Protein Crumbles


  • 1 2-oz package (¾ cup) Longève Original Plant-based Protein Crumbles
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable bouillon powder
  • ½ tsp. smoked paprika
  • ¼ tsp. ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp. onion powder
  • ¾ cup hot water
  • 1 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. tomato paste
  • 1 Tbsp. prepared yellow mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. vegan steak sauce or Worcestershire
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • ½ cup vegan refried beans (we recommend Amy’s)
  • ½ cup vital wheat gluten flour


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine Longève crumbles with bouillon powder and spices in a mixing bowl and mix well to combine. Stir in hot water and soy sauce. Let mixture rest for five minutes to allow crumbles to hydrate.
  3. Add tomato paste, mustard, steak sauce, olive oil and refried beans and mix thoroughly. Add vital wheat gluten flour and mix well until mixture becomes drier, stiffens slightly and begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl.
  4. Form mixture into 4 burger patties and place on an oiled sheet pan.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 20 – 25 minutes, flipping once, until burgers are golden brown on both sides.
  6. Let cool slightly before serving.
