As part of the burger chain’s latest Artist Series collaboration, the partnership let the “Batman” rapper create his own signature Impossible burger Trio.
“I’m trying to satisfy different flavors for people while, at the same time, trying to give them a plant based burger that they can enjoy,” Smith states in the video below.
“But I also want there to be a social impact and social change aspect to it as well.
So one dollar of every burger that is sold through my partnership with Umami is going to be going to a specific for hurricane relief. I feel like this is very important for moving into the future of humanity with the plant-based diets for the world. And this is at the forefront of food technology and I just want to be a part of that positive change.”
These new burgers, which are flavored as normal, Korean barbecue, and Umami barbecue will be available through the end of 2017.
The trio use about 75 percent less water, 87 percent less greenhouse gases and about 95 percent less land than conventional ground beef. Umami will also offer Jaden Smith’s eco-friendly water line, JUST water.
A spokesperson said: “The Impossible slider is an Impossible patty with caramelized onion, American cheese, miso-mustard, house spread, dill pickles, lettuce, and tomato.
“The Korean BBQ slider contains an Impossible patty, gochujang glaze, caramelized kimchi, sesame aioli, Korean ketchup, and scallion-cilantro salad.
“The U-BBQ slider features an Impossible patty, American cheese, Umami BBQ sauce, tempura serranos, and smoked salt onion strings.”
The Impossible Trio, which was unveiled during the Artist Series launch party at the Umami Burger location in LA’s The Grove, will be available for $15, with $1 going to hurricane relief efforts at participating locations.
