House of Cards actress Kate Mara told Bon Appetit: "I'm completely obsessed right now with the vegan, gluten-free Beyond Meat burger. The first time I had it, I thought, 'I must have gotten this wrong.' It looked so bloody because of the beets! I'm completely addicted. I'll cook one up in some olive or coconut oil, top it with a slice of vegan American, and put it in a gluten-free bun with ketchup and lettuce."
