Prepare To Drool, A New Plant-Based Burger Just Dropped And It’s Not From Where You’d Think

Hitting ‘confirm’ on a couple of buns packed with your favourite fillings has been a surefire way to improve the mood over the last while in lockdown. After months of being at home doubling down that repeat order, though, it’s high time you brought some spice back into your life in the form of this epic plant-based burger called The Great Pretender, courtesy of Nando’s.

They say change is an adventure, and we could all do with a bit of that in our life right now. A healthier option to that triple patty cheeseburger you’ve had twice in the last two weeks ain’t a bad call either, and that’s where this tasty number comes in. The plant-based patty is stacked with protein, and like your chicken or beef counterparts, pairs perfectly with your usual burger preferences.

The patty itself caramelises and cooks to a similar texture as Nando’s OG protein options, meaning that basting you know and love so well should most definitely be added to your liking—hit it with caution and opt for BBQ or go hard with Xtra Hot. Your appetite will thank you either way.

Wondering what’s inside? The Great Pretender is made with the same Peri-Peri flavours you’d expect from any Nando’s experience. Those lemon and herb accents also make an appearance as you’re chowing down on those buns that will no doubt be added to your bi-weekly burger rotation. 

The best part, this refreshing plant-based alternative can be added most meals on the menu. If you happen to be taking some time off the humble burger, pop it in your paella or salad instead.

The Great Pretender is available at Nando’s across Australia for an extra $1 when you select your protein.
