An interesting thing happened recently. Yesterday, a recipe of mine was mentioned as the inspiration for a homemade veggie burger over at Wild Juggling (kind of awesome). It seems I’m not the only person who become fed up with poor quality frozen veggie burgers and decided homemade is the way to go. While I still believe nothing beats making your vegan burger from scratch, I did make a happy discovery:
The Qrunch Burger. It just so happens I tried it last night for the first time. There are four flavors, and I went with Sweet Curry with Lentil.
You may wonder what made me cave and buy these prefabricated burgers. Well to start with, they are not made with soy. These are quinoa burgers, apparently held together with mashed veggies. Nearly all the ingredients are organic.
Looking at the nutritional value, you may think the Boca Burger is a healthier choice; however, for the quality ingredients I think it’s worth an extra gram of fat and a few (or 130) extra calories. In fact, as part of my summer writing project I even wrote to the creators of this delicious burger and thanked them for a job well done!
And…my own quinoa chili bean burger recipe if you’re looking for a homemade quinoa burger.
