Servings 2



  • 1 brioche burger bun, halved
  • 1 vEEF® Classic Burger Patties, defrosted
  • 3 fresh pineapple, thin slices
  • grapeseed oil
  • 3 perfectly ripe tomato, slices
  • red onion, sliced
  • handful butter lettuce/shredded iceberg
  • 1 dairy free cheese, slice
  • your favourite sauce (e.g. aioli, sweet chilli, dijonaisse, hot English mustard, sriracha)


To prepare burger

  • Heat a grill pan over a medium high heat, toast the cutsides of the burger bun to your liking (this helps adds crunch and helps tostop your bun getting soggy), set aside.
  • Lightly oil the pan, add the pineapple and vEEF® patty, cook for about 3 minutes turning once until the patty has agolden crust and the pineapple is gently caramelised. If using cheese lay over the patty now, the heat from the patty will gently melt the cheese. Remove from the pan.

To assemble burger

  • Spread each side of the bun with your sauce/s of choice, the more the merrier. We would like to note- there has been hot debate in the vEEF® kitchens as to the order of the burger stack and we acknowledge ultimately that anything goes but in our minds the winner is- (from the bottom) caramelised pineapple, vine ripened tomato, red onion, lettuce, vEEF® patty (with or without the cheese), top with the sauced bun. Enjoy.


You can substitute canned pineapple rings in juice if fresh pineapple isn’t available.
