Just thought I’d add an honorable mention to Morningstar Farms – Grillers Prime. I found these to be the best tasting & closest to a real burger.

Absolute best veggie burgers are Isadora’s Frozen Go-Nut Burgers. Nutty, spicy and super tasty. Made on Saturna Island in beautiful British Columbia.

The Grillers Prime is (without a doubt) the best tasting meatless burger out there.
I didn’t quit eating meat because it doesn’t taste good: I just don’t want it to be made out of animals.
Now that I quit: it’s kind of nasty when you really think about it.

I got you all beat, and can’t believe none of you has heard of Schneider’s vegetarian burgers under the “Oh Naturel” label. If cooked properly and not dried out they are majestic!

The best veggie burgers on the planet are without a doubt, Foodies Five Star Gormet Grillers. Foodies + hamburger bun + lettuce + ketchup + Veganaise = happiness.

The Morning Star Grillers Original are the best!! The grillers prime are nasty!!! Also try the Morning Star Italian Herb Chicken patties. They have an excellent taste.

My husband and I love the Morningstar Griller Veggie Burgers. Add mustard, pickle and a deli thin whole wheat bun — way yummy!!

(12) Vegetable Masala Burger says:

Vegetable Masala Burger from Trader Joes are awesome and are made with only veggies and no soy. The burgers are made from potatoes, carrots, green beans, corn, bell peppers and “indian” spices. These are best made on the stovetop or grilled (George Foreman). 1 burger= 120 calories, 8g fat, 360mg sodium, 12g carbs, 2g protein. Give these a try!

The Morningstar Garden Veggie Patties are my favorite vegetarian burger I’ve tried so far. They seem to be the ones that Burger King sells (they taste the same to me). I wonder why Ashley thinks they’re gross.

Do they taste like a real hamburger? No. I don’t think that was their intent. But I’d choose them over a real burger any day even if I wasn’t a vegetarian.

While I enjoy both Boca and Morningstar burgers, my new favorite is Don Lee Farms All-Natural Veggie Burger. No, it doesn’t taste like a burger, but it’s not trying to either! Very satisfying and super tasty!

September 12, 2011 at 2:37 pm
(20) Lisa says:

Morningstar Farms Griller’s Prime are really good if you brush the frozen patty with olive oil, and cook them on a gas or charcoal grill. I always have one of these when our family has beef burgers at a cookout.

I dont know what you are all talking about…. I live in the pacific northwest, and they have a veggie burger made in wilsonville oregon that is the best tasting and most desireable vegggie pattie ever. I am not a vegetarian, but i love the patties from Chex Gourmet from Marie! They are awesome! The Wow! Mushroom one is spectacular! I recommend anyone with a chance to try them.

Don lee farms veggie patties, and morning star farms chipotle black bean burger hands down the best. Get them at Costco.

I love the Morning star garden vegetable burgers, but Amy’s California burgers are my ultimate burger! Of course I’m not looking for something that is closest to a beef burger! I would eat beef if that is what I wanted to taste!

I think you all should check the ingredients in those Morning Star and Boca Burgers… inform yourselves with processed soy options. Please read… Exactly what are meatless meats?

As you mentioned, many of you are a few weeks into your Lenten sacrifice and chances are some of you have gone temporarily meatless. But if you’re tempted to try some “meatless meats” to get a fix, please think again. Instead of invoking guilt by pointing out that’s sort of cheating (on Lent), I’ll stick to the nutrition cons. In case you’re unfamiliar with them (lucky you), meat substitutes (a.k.a. “faux meats”) are foods that aren’t meat, but aim to aesthetically resemble meat in texture, flavor, and appearance. They provide vegetarians and vegans with something meat-like, plus a good dose of protein. For years, many cultures have used seitan (wheat gluten), tofu, legumes, and tempeh in place of meat within vegetarian diets. These foods are fine. My concerns lie with the recent wannabe meats that are inexpensive products made from processed soy, cottonseeds, wheat, and oats — better known as textured vegetable protein (TVP). Other processed forms of soy are also being used. You’ll see them on food labels as soy protein isolate, and soy protein concentrate. You can find these ingredients in products like Boca’s Original Meatless Chik’n nuggets, Morningstar Farms Meal Starters, Boca’s Italian Meatless Sausage, Amy’s Quarter Pound Veggie Burger, and many more. Make sure to scour your ingredient lists.

Harley -
Re-read your comment. You never say what’s wrong with these products, so I see no reason not to keep on loving my veggie burgers!

I have to agree with DebbieG. Isadora’s go nuts burger were the best I’ve ever had. They are not meant as a substitute for meat, if that is what you you’re looking for. To a former vegan, they are heavenly!

The best burgers are the ones I home make for my girlfriend because they have one ingredient you can not buy… baked with love. Its based on PPK’s Chickpea Cutlets out of the Veganomicon… minus the soy sauce and plus peanut butter and white miso… and love.
