I’ve had chickpea burgers, falafel burgers, black bean burgers and what feels like a revolving door of delicious “health food” that doesn’t quite scratch my juicy meaty burger fix. When I first saw these Meatless Farm Co Meat Free Burgers out of the corner of my eye at the 99 Cent store I turned to my partner with a little laugh and told him I was going to go read the ingredients expecting to find “seitan” aka “vital wheat gluten” as the first ingredient. A minute later I returned to our shopping cart with two packages that were met with a raised eyebrow and a smirk. I was convinced that for $2.99 a package these burgers had to taste terrible like rubbery shoe leather. I was one hundred percent wrong. Juicy, tender, chewy with the texture of beef, when prepared medium rare there’s this lovely red center when I bite into it and covered in my Secret Burger Rub* I was fully emerged in a burger experience while still nourishing my body with all 9 essential amino acids and a laundry list of vitamins and minerals. Finally a 100% Plant Based burger that scratches my burger fix. Hallelujah. Of course the big test was at a friendly outdoor BBQ with a group of hard-core carnivores. None of them could believe they were eating vegetarian 100% plants! After a few high fives and showing everyone the packages several of our carnivore friends got inspired to embrace plant based nutrition. These have become staples in my kitchen and I always stock up on these whenever I’m passing by a 99 Cent store.
In addition to scratching my burger fix this juicy meatless burger with all the fixings comes with a laundry list of health benefits. This isn’t “health food” this healthy food that tastes GOOD.
