I have tried making my own veggie burgers – the particular recipe…um, not so good.
Most veggie burgers I had found for purchase are primarily soy based. Me no likey.
Well a veggie burger actually exists that tastes good, yes good, and isn’t primarily made from soy!
Where did I find this tasty, vegan, veggie pattie?
Crazy enough – Costco. While strolling through the isles I noticed a big old box of Gardenburger California Burger veggie patties.
Hmm, let’s take a look at the ingredients.
Primarily brown rice based! Sweet! There is still some soy but low on the list. Sodium level is higher than I would like but still had to give these a try. The only danger of trying something new like this from Costco is you have a whole pile of them left if they taste like poo. I decided to live on the culinary edge.
The next day, I cooked one up for lunch. After 20 minutes of cook time, I cut the veggie pattie in half and could see all the brown rice grains which I thought was kind of cool (doesn’t take much to entertain me. ;). The first bite tasted like real food. There was texture, there was taste. As far as veggie patties go – these rocked!
If you are interested in a veggie pattie that has a rock-star taste, I would definitely give the Gardenburger California Burgers a try. Costco had the best price by-far versus other grocery stores.
Anyone else tried these veggie burgers, know of others you like, or have a killer recipe?
