Start your day just right

Since starting off in 2013, Burgreens has been making a name for themself as a purveyor of tasty plant-based food and products in Jakarta. Founded by Max Mandias and Helga Angelina, Burgreens makes it their mission to create healthier options, rather than junk food which reigns supreme as a popular choice. From plant-based burgers to ready-to-cook meals, Burgreens makes healthy eating accessible for everyone.
Expertly mixing Western and Asian cuisine on the menu seems to be Burgreens’ secret of success. “Recently, I came across this fact: only eight percent of Indonesians consume the right amount of vegetable and fruit daily. That is very low and unhealthy in the long run,” shares Mandias, a passionate advocate of conscious eating. “It is stressful to live in this city and that is exactly why you have to be mindful of the food that you choose to nourish your body. You have to learn about the combination of food that you eat – which one can actually hurt or heal you. Every time you eat, you are given a choice,” says Mandias.
Here, he shares his easy and nourishing recipe, using plant-based skewers from Burgreens’ ready-to-cook products.
