From The (Grocer’s) Freezer
Making your own veggie burgers is great, but let’s face it — sometimes you just want to open the freezer and make something fast. More and more brands and varieties of veggie burgers are gracing our grocer’s freezer, and it is an easy and healthy way to go meatless for a meal. Below are a few of our favorites.
LocalFolks Foods Mushroom Patties
As I previously mentioned, this mushroom patties are DELICIOUS, and they get bonus points for being made from local mushrooms (if you live in Indiana). If you live in Indy, check this list to see where you can pick some up. (I get mine from Farm Fresh Delivery)
Morningstar Farms Spicy Black Bean Veggie Burger
I like to eat this burger more like one would eat a burrito. I wrap it in a tortilla, and top it with cheese, tomato, salsa and sour cream.
Trader Joe’s Vegetable Marsala Burger
This burger is unique take on the veggie burger, this one is made “with Authentic Indian Spices” and tastes great topped with Mango Chutney.
Gardenburger: The Original
For a good old-fashioned veggie burger, my pick is the Gardenburger Original. Unlike other brands, this patty is not meant to taste like a hamburger… is it meant to taste just like the veggie burger it is.
LightLife Mushroom Burgers
I really like the texture and flavor of these patties which are predominately made up of brown rice, oats and shiitake mushrooms. I’ve even been know to bring these to cookouts of friends to have the grill master throw it on alongside the typical meat based patties.
Amy’s Kitchen California Veggie Burger
A wonderful hearty flavor coming from bulgur, chuncks of veggies and walnuts. Throw it on a whole grain bun, add some avocado and you’ve got a meal.
