Cheeseburger Lettuce Cups


Vegan Ground Beef

We all love cheeseburgers, but couldn’t responsibly have one every day…until now. Butcher’s Select Ground Beef is a nourishing alternative to traditional beef, and a vibrant lettuce wrap keeps your burger light and refreshing. Coupled with quinoa and Very Good Cheese, this is one burger you won’t want to put down.

PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOK TIME: 45 minutes
YIELD: 4-6 servings



  • 1/4 cup quinoa, soaked if desired
  • Vegetable or no-chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 pkg Butcher's Select A Cut Above Beef
  • 2 tbsp plant-based Worcestershire
  • 2 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1/2 pkg Very Good Cheese Cheddah or Bold Cheddah, grated
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce, peeled into lettuce cups

  1. Cook quinoa according to package directions, replacing water with broth.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375F and grease a 9-in casserole dish.
  3. In a mid-sized pan over medium heat, add oil and onion. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until translucent. Add plant-based ground beef and cook for 5-7 minutes or until browned. Remove from heat.
