“ Type: Vegetarians „
I am not vegetarian but have been buying these vegetable quarter pounders for a couple of years now, and really enjoy them, so I thought I'd share my experiences. These are basically frozen veggie burgers. You get four quarter pounders in a box, and they are made from a blend of carrot, onion, cauliflower, sweet corn, peas, green beans and red peppers, and have a crispy breadcrumb coating. They're very easy to cook and can be either put in the oven, grilled or shallow fried. I've never tried them fried, my preferred method of cooking being to put them under the grill where they only take 15 minutes to cook. Obviously being coated in breadcrumbs these don't look like your standard burger, but nevertheless they still look quite appetising - especially when you cut into them and can see the vibrant colours of the vegetables. The burgers are a nice texture with the outside being quite crispy and the inside having a smoother almost creamy texture which I think is because the vegetables are mixed with smooth potato. The flavour of these is really nice - all the vegetable flavours go really well with each other, although I don't think there is one flavour which is predominant over the others. You can however, pick out the flavours of some individual vegetables such as the pepper and the sweet corn. One thing to note is that these are quite big. I usually only make one, then half it, and put each half in a bread bun. I once made the mistake of making two of these at once, and I found them to be far too much for one person. Each burger contains: 227 calories 5.4g protein 29.8g carbs 9.6g fat A pack of four burgers costs £1 from Iceland. Overall, I think these are really nice and some of the best veggie burgers I have tried. They have a lovely taste and texture, are relatively cheap and quick and easy to make too. Recommended!
