Friday I was at my favorite restaurant, Great Sage, enjoying a bite to eat before grocery shopping. I was talking to one of the employees and they informed me that,
The wait was over....
Roots Market now has the burger!!!!! Let me tell you, I could not finish my lunch fast enough. Walked over to Roots and got my burgers!!!!! Surprisingly, I didn't eat a burger that day. I called my BFF, who was ending her 10 Raw Food Challenge, invited her over for some veggie burgers with all the fixins on Saturday.
Saturday began with a workout and a trip to the farmers market...can't make a burger without fresh tomatoes. Also picked up some green tomatoes...Let the grilling begin.
When I said all the fixins, I meant all the fixins. On this delectable burger is lettuce, tomato, onion, grilled green tomato, cheddar style Daiya cheese, and Vegenaise. And I mustn't forget the pickles that I made myself. All of this was sandwiched between an Ezekiel bun.
When I say this burger was worth the wait, I mean it was worth the wait. It was substantial and full of flavor. It was everything that I had hoped it would be. Notice that I didn't even take my apron off to eat it. I ate the entire burger standing up. I truly had a moment with that there burger!!!
And it didn't stop there. I had a burger for lunch today and another for dinner...Don't judge me :-).
Tomorrow...smoothie for breakfast and kale salad for lunch.
I think I can speak for vegans everywhere when I say, Thank you Gardein for your gratifying products!
yes, i have been using the beefless tips for quite some time in stews, as a sidedish, on salad...no other beefless like product comes close! now i am really excited to try the burger, though i don't think anything can replace my favorite burgers from Quorn, which are made with fungi. sounds gross i know, but found it's actually huge mushrooms...delicioso!ReplyDelete
btw, just saw quorn uses egg whites as a binder, so it's not vegan...c'est la vie :-(ReplyDelete
These burgers are the best I've eaten...By far!!!!ReplyDelete
I just love this post!! Those burgers are super tasty, I first had them right off the grill at an all vegan barbeque, yum!! I love your posts because you show all the ingredients you use, explain what you do and in this one we get to see you enjoying the outcome :) Keep up the good work and please get me a post for Great Sage!!ReplyDelete
