When I was a little girl, we didn't have burgers very often. I didn't really grow up in a meat-and-potaotes family. We did eat meat, but mostly I remember eating (happily) dishes like ratatouille and such. My mom is a great cook and did a great job feeding us dinner every night with veggies and all sorts of interesting dishes. But I do have especially fond memories of burger night. Burger nights were rare, and involved the grill, which involved exotic things like having the back door open and usually meant my dad was helping with dinner too. I'm sure I'm not the only vegan out there who still has a lot of love for burgers, even after I stopped eating meat.
Over the years, I've tried many veggie burgers, and enjoyed many of them too. I even hosted a giant Veggie Burger Tasting event a few years ago for the public. Over all these years, I've heard people mention that Quorn products were really yummy, but they haven't been vegan - until now! Quorn has come out with a new vegan burger patty, and they very kindly sent me some to check out.
Well, Mr. Vegan Eats & Treats and I both give these burgers an enthusiastic thumbs UP! They are chewy and delicious! They are definitely on the "meaty" side, as far as flavor goes, though I would say more "chickeny" than "beefy." TMI? I hope not! Don't worry folks, they're definitely vegan!
You know how some veggie burgers are really "health foody?" Not these! I said to Mr. VE&T, "These taste a little 'junk foody'," and he said "YEAH! In a good way!" :) But actually, the nutritional details are not junk foody at all. 10 g of protein, 4 g of fat, and only 100 calories per burger! We both really enjoyed these burgers, and they will definitely go into our veggie burger rotation.
Three cheers for companies making vegan options!
Three cheers for Vegan Burger Night!
Quorn also sent me two coupons for a free box of vegan burger patties. Unfortunately, Snoopy found one and ate it. True Story. However, I do have one left - and I'd like to send it to a lucky winner (please just make sure you can find these in your area, so that the coupon won't go to waste). Just leave a comment to enter!
