Ok, I know what you're thinking...a blog about veggie burgers, you're kidding right? Aren't veggie burgers those sad, tasteless, poor imitations of the real thing? Well, maybe. What if I told you that I found a veggie burger that both meat eaters and vegetarians agree is the real deal, has flavor, and is satisfying? It's called the Qrunch Burger (not with a C, but with a Q). Takes about 1 minute in the microwave or 5-10 minutes in the oven, these burgers are full of high quality, whole, natural ingredients that is subtle, but flavorful. Check out the ingredients below from their 'original' recipe:
Water, Organic Millet, Organic Quinoa, Organic Refined Coconut Oil, Organic Onion, Organic Carrots, Organic Broccoli, Organic Spinach, Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, Sea Salt, Organic Arrowroot Starch, Organic Psyllium Seed Powder, Organic Garlic, Organic Sunflower Oil.
How do I like them? 2 slices of toasted whole grain bread, hummus spread on each side, sliced onion, cucumbers or lettuce, sliced red pepper and Sriracha sauce for a little spice. If you're in a pinch for dinner, this burger's precooked (just keep frozen) and it's ready in just a few!
The question is, where to find these burgers? Click here for a list of grocers from the Qrunch website. However, while my local Whole Foods doesn't carry them, my local Mom's Organic does, so it may vary per your locale.
Any way you slice it, if you're open to trying something new, this veg burger may just have what it takes, to make it on to your plate!
Yours in great health!
