Here’s the deal: A veggie burger is probably the quickest and easiest (yet still healthy) lunch or dinner you could whip up for yourself as a vegetarian. They’re pretty low maintenance — throw one of these bad boys in a skillet for 5-10 minutes and voila! Most of the time, you don’t even need to put it on bread or add cheese or extra condiments. These suckers are loaded with flavor.
Today, I’m going to do review comparisons of Morning Star Farms and Season’s Choice veggie burgers, showing you the pros and cons of both burgers and letting you choose for yourself which one you want to pick up next time you’re at the store!
Morning Star Farms
- They can be eaten plain, on a bun, topped with cheese, in a taco (I recommend with rice and feta) or any other way you want! There are endless options…all of which are delicious.
- They stay in burger form.
- They have higher protein content, which is an important nutrient for vegetarians.
- They have more calories, fat and sodium.
- They contain disodium insinuate, among other things.
I tried these for the first time the other week because I was shopping at Aldi (which has recently gone organic) and Season’s Choice was the only brand they had! Here’s what I thought about it:
- They are packed full of veggies and taste super good.
- They’re low on calories, fat and sodium, high on vitamin A and have more iron.
- There aren’t any ingredients that I don’t know or can’t pronounce. That’s always a good thing!
- They are really mushy and fall apart really easily. (I considered using these to make my own meatless meatballs, but went with this recipe instead: http://minimalistbaker.com/simple-vegan-meatballs/)
- They have less protein.
So, you tell me: Which veggie burger do you think takes the crown? Let me know in the comments below, and feel free to put in your own two cents about other veggie burger brands!
