Though a homemade veggie burger always tastes better than the packaged kind, there are some packaged veggie burgers that I like. Off the top of my head, I am a fan of:
• Morningstar Farms Garden Veggie Patties
• Morningstar Farms Mediterranean Chickpea Patties
• Morningstar Farms Sausage Patties
• Morningstar Farms Chik’n Patties
• Boca Chik’n Patties
Yes, I know that these are like the fast food of the package veggie burger world with an ingredient list a mile long with all sorts of weird crap, but I like them and they’re easy. I will often put one on top of a salad for some extra protein at lunch.
So, when I saw some new flavor of Boca burgers that advertised that they only had 2 Weight Watchers points (normally the sort of veggie burgers I buy have 4), I grabbed them. I should have known better.
This was quite possibly the worst veggie burger I’ve ever had or at least had in a long time. Bleh. No wonder they are only two points. Two points of disgusting.
In order to remedy my bad veggie burger experience, I decided to go the homemade route and made Green Curry Veggie Burgers with Black Beans and Walnuts. Much more than two points each, but worth it. I halved the recipe, which made four patties. They were a little hard to cook because they were so soft and they broke apart very easily, but they were really tasty.
They’re not the prettiest thing, but neither is the pre-packaged kind.
What’s your favorite pre-packaged veggie burger?
