I’m a meat eater and I love eating meat but sometimes I want to go vegetarian for a day, like on Meatless Monday! When I’m busy, which seems like ALL THE TIME, I like to make meals for Ken and I that are quick and easy and don’t take much time to prepare. OH, and said meals have to be super delicious and healthy and made with natural, whole ingredients, too. Cue the Sweet Earth Natural Food’s veggie burger patty.
The awesome folks over at Sweet Earth Natural Foods (aka SENF) contacted me to see if I wanted to try out their veggie burgers. After reading about the all natural, Non GMO whole ingredients that SENF uses in their products, I was like YES! I’ll admit, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’ve tried many frozen veggie burgers before and a couple were ok but most were meh.
Whole veggies and grains like quinoa and barley and a home-made teriyaki sauce are a few of the ingredients used to make these burger patties. There isn’t any processed crap in these burgers and I was able to read and know what each ingredient on the ingredient list is.
The teriyaki veggie burger I made with the SENF patties is a simple burger because I’m a simple burger kind of gal. When I order a burger, I typically get traditional ingredients – lettuce, tomato, onion and mayo. Sometimes I get grilled onions and mushrooms, which is what you will find on this burger.
So what’s the verdict on these veggie burgers patties? They are pretty good, much better than other frozen veggie burgers I’ve tried. They’re a great vegetarian option, whether you’re a vegetarian or a meat eater who wants to cut back on meat consumption. Meat eaters will love these. I do and I’m a meat eater! Now these burger patties don’t compare to a homemade or awesome restaurant made veggie burger but they satisfy the burger craving and are a delicious, easy to prepare option when you’re in a bind and don’t have time to make your own patties. ??
