  • Sure and I was about to get one a few weeks ago but when I saw that the veggie burger had more calories than a beef burger I decided against it and got beef.

      Thanks for the answer! I'm surprised by the calorie content. Do you recall which sort of veggie burger it was? Typically veggie burgers are around 100-150 kcal, and a quarter pound beef burger is around 200 kcal, but also, typically, a beef burger has 3x as much protein.
  • Sure. But I'm less likely to eat one someone else has dressed. I don't like pickle or mustard. I've even made them before from some recipe I found online. But it was a long time ago. I'm not interested in paying so much for them! Or beef either!

      Thanks for the answer! I tried making my own a few times, with varied results. It's difficult to get them to stick together, IME. There are a few cheaper ones at stores, but they are also poor quality. I usually buy Morningstar, since it's easy to find coupons to get them for $2-3 per 4 patty pack, and the quality is quite good, but I prefer them for quick meals, whereas I prefer to cook actual real food if I have the time.

      Egg helps them stick together. I'm not big on burgers especially thick ones with a big bun! They don't fit my mouth. For a quick and easy meal I put protein meal replacement powder in my coffee/cocoa.

      Thanks for your answer!
  • I actually like making them fresh as it's better than the store bought ones.
    • Linda Joy
      What do you put in them? The last recipe I looked up was primarily black beans. The recipe I used a long time ago was mostly a variety of grains.
    • bostjan64
      Thanks for your answer! I agree that the homemade ones are healthier and taste better. I have yet to figure out how to get the texture as good, though. I've tried varying levels of TVP, but don't know what else to try.
    • Linda Joy
      Where do you get your TVP? I know waltonfeed.com has it, but their shipping is high! I use soy and whey protein powder more now that diabetes influences me to choose to eat less beans and cornbread. (Its a southern staple)
    • bostjan64
      I get mine at the local grocery store. Our grocery chain only exists in my town and the next town over, though. The brand I've used most is "Bob's Red Mill." You can get those from Thrive Market online for $2.50, but, like you said, the shipping is six bucks. But the shipping is also six bucks if you get an entire case of the stuff, so maybe if you wait until you have a list of items to order from the same warehouse it won't be so bad.
    • Linda Joy
      We get Bob's Red Mill here, and I've seen it online as well, but didn't know the shipping details. I've never actually ordered directly from them online. Thanks!
  • Yeah, I'm a vegetarian.
    • bostjan64
      That's great! Thanks for your answer! Do you eat veggie burgers regularly then? Which kind is your favourite?
  • Nope. If I want a burger, I'm gonna have a real one, not a fake one. If I wanted vegetables, I'd just eat vegetables.
    • bostjan64
      Thanks for the answer! I understand where you are coming from. With a real burger, you know pretty much what you are getting. If you want something healthy to eat, the veggie burger isn't really it. My mom got me to try one years and years ago, and I actually quite liked it, but I had no expectations.
    • Linda Joy
      I like eating vegetables, as well.
    • Archie Bunker
      I'm on a carnivore diet right now, so, no veggies.
    • Linda Joy
      Do you have any idea what your cholesterol levels are?
    • Archie Bunker
      Perfect, last time I checked. And I'm dropping the pounds. Problem is, it gets a little boring. I mean how many different ways can you cook steak or beef? But having bacon all the time is awesome.
  • Yes. I have eaten 2 different ones. One was very good!
  • no..... Unknown factors in the mix of the Veggie Burgers are questionable
    • Linda Joy
      Do they not list the ingredients on the package where you live?
  • I'm an omnivore, not a rabbit. :P
