Disadvantages: None at all!
When it comes to Vegetarian food at the moment it's all I tend to eat. No I'm not Vegetarian but my mate who I am sort of living with at the moment is and as we go on holiday loads and at the moment I'm staying in her house so it's easier for me to assume a Veggie diet instead of messing about preparing two different meals (Particularly in a caravan lol!).
So I have been eating loads of Quorn and things like that and for the most part I enjoy it. Healthy options, versatile foods... I'm quite happy and to be honest I even feel a bit healthier and not so bunged up as I once did!
However I got fed up fast of vegetables in everything and so when I went shopping in Asda and spotted these at a pound a box I couldn't wait to try them out. Although I don't miss the taste of meat at all I do miss the appearance of it. I mean I used to love burgers in buns with some salad and mustard and all that lot on it and so when I saw these I thought it would be a great compromise and even my Vegetarian mate was up for giving them a go with me!
Oblong box with a picture of the burgers on the front. I'm told that they are Linda mcCartney 4 Vegetarian Burgers and that they are free from artificial colours, flavours or preservatives and that they are Vegetarian Society approved and 200g in weight and there is an at a glance nutritional chart on there. Other information given on the box includes ingredients and allergy advice, a full nutritional rundown chart, cooking instructions and contact details for Linda McCartney are given. Nice enough and informative box this is!
To Cook Them:
You can BBQ these, or grill or oven cook them in around 10-15 minutes.
Small and round they appear like meaty burgers really. Dark brown and rather smooth they are rather thin though. They cook with ease and as we have these rather often we now prefer to fry them in a little oil although instructions for this are not given on the box! However we find oil gives them a little moistness that they otherwise lack and they do tend to shrivel up under the grill or in the oven.
Taste wise they are of course made from soya but in the main with these they taste well seasoned, meaty and have a nice light flavour of onion to them. They hold well when cooked and don't fall apart when handling them and out of these and Quorn burgers me and my friend are in total agreement as I type this review that we prefer these on taste and in quality!
Sure they could do with being a wee bit thicker if you want to nit pick but they are easy to cook and great stuffed in a bun! Love them and in fact they are on the top of our shopping list to get next time we go shopping!
Nutritional Information per Burger:
Available in all good supermarkets etc and if not on offer expect to pay about £2.00 a box for four!
Summary: Lovely meat free, healthy burgers!
