The World’s Best Veggie Burger

Now if you’ve been reading this blog for even a week, then you know I’m not vegetarian. I do love me some meats. However, I do like to eat vegetarian at least twice a week.

In my opinion, it saves some money (beans are cheaper than beef y’all) and I’m pretty sure it’s good for the ol’ ticker. (Even though I eat mostly lean meats – sometimes it has to be beef…or bacon. Ok, a lot of the time it has to be bacon)

So I use beans a lot in cooking:

Roasted Tomato and Leek Pasta

Roasted Squash Nachos with Homemade Nacho Cheese

Roasted Chickpea Tacos or Nachos

Easy Black Bean Burgers

The above are my standbys. They’re easy to make, fairly inexpensive, and I know they’re tasty.

I also love Bun-less Burgers, but they’re a bit more pricey. There are a lot of ingredients AND it uses avocado (cha ching). But they’re delicious and worth making.

I had pretty much given up on pre-made Veggie Burgers.

I mean, what is it about meat substitutes that just screams “Stuff some wheat in there!” for goodness sakes. I’ve tried a few brands of veggie burgers I won’t mention, but yesterday I had one that is not only worth a mention: it’s worth a purchase.

Taste? Delicious.

I found these at Whole Foods in a two pack. I honestly can’t remember the price but you can get them at The Gluten Free Mall for under $4 for two. Two bucks a burger – that’s a steal for all the good food crammed in there!

I can’t wait to try their other products – Adzuki Bean Burger I’m lookin’ at you!
