LOOKING for: Your favorite veggie burger

My husband wants to start eating vegetarian. The only meat meal he claims he will miss is grilled hamburgers. I would like to find a really delicious veggie burger---either store bought or your own recipe. We just tried Amy's organic vegetable "Chicago" burgers, but found them to be disappointing---too much of a "cardboard"-like taste. What is your favorite?

I like the MorningStar farms regular veggie burger and especially their spicy black bean burgers. But neither tastes like a regular, non-veg burger. Try the Boca burgers. If I remember right, they are closer to the taste and texture of a hamburger. If those aren't available, look for a brand with more soy content instead of veggies.

Good luck!

Grill him a portobello mushroom! They have the consistancy of meat and taste great basted with olive oil and salt and peppered.....and they fit on the bun!!! Provide the 'usual' trimmings.

IMHO, Yves makes the BEST veggie burgers. Even meat-eaters I know have claimed that they're so close in texture and flavor that they have a difficult time telling them apart.

Not sure if you can find them in 'any' store, but here is a link to their website:

Some of we veggies don't like the texture of meat!

I like the Gardenburger Original burgers, you can find them in the frozen food section. I even slipped one in on my husband a year ago and he loved it :)

I just came from another board where this came up. Bocca was the favorite of those who wanted a meaty texture.

Even as a meat eater I like veggie burgers. I do not want mine to be meat like however. I love the Amy organic california burgers, and the garder burger mushroom.

Gardenburger is my favorite brand,
But I agree with the poster who said to give him a grilled portobella mushroom. They're vegetarian steaks. I marinate mine in a raspberry chipotle sauce and they're really tasty!

I am not a vegetarian but my daughter is, and she likes the garden burgers BECAUSE she does not like the taste and texture of meat. I have tried them all, and would say that portobello mushrooms are phenomenal. you could swear you are eating steak. For the frozen ones, I really like Boca burgers- they taste most beef like to me, and the morning star are pretty good as well.

I second the original Gardenburgers, as far as store brands go. But for those of you who live in the South, you simply cannot beat a Houston's veggie Burger. Unbelievable.
