The Beyond Burger

If you haven’t heard of the Beyond Burger, I highly recommend you take a look. I am a fan of most veggie burgers, but this one is so similar to a beef burger, it’s unbelievable. I’ve purchased these at the Whole Foods in Minneapolis. They typically run $5-$6 for two patties. I have cooked the patties on the stovetop and on the grill.

Here is a breakdown of the nutritional facts found on Beyond Meat’s website:

And here is how they look from package to grill (pictured left next to actual beef burgers):

I hope you are able to give these a try! And if mock meats aren’t your thing, I have a few recipes for really tasty bean burgers!

Grilling Meatless Burgers

I’ve tried a lot of great meatless meats in my day, and I must say, the Herbivorous Butcher in Minneapolis has a burger that will make anyone say, “wow!”

I was able to grill these burgers, which was a huge plus. When I make bean/legume based burgers, they aren’t always grill friendly. You can tell there are some hearty ingredients keeping it all together.

I topped my burgers with their dill havarti cheese.

Processed with Snapseed.

I am so lucky to live in a state with a vegan butcher shop! They do offer shipping of some of their products, so if you aren’t within driving range, there is still hope!
