Good, better, best: Meatless burgers from your grocery store

Meatless burgers have become increasingly popular as the environmental and health benefits of a meatless (or, at least, less meat) diet have inspired worldwide changes in eating habits.

If you’ve been considering picking up a pack of meatless burgers during your next grocery store run, you’ll be spoiled for options! These patties come frozen, so they’re convenient to make and tasty to eat. Whether you’re vegetarian, vegan, or just looking for a change, these burgers will delight you regardless of your food preference.

Good: Gardenburger

Gardenburger has two different kinds of veggie burgers that can dazzle even the biggest meat lovers. The original veggie burger is made of mushrooms, brown rice, rolled oats, mozzarella cheese, and several other vegetables and seasonings to make this one of the tastiest frozen veggie patties in the supermarket. One quarter-pound burger includes five grams of protein and no artificial flavors.

If you’re looking for a new flavor, opt for the chipotle black bean patty, a flavorful burger with a kick of spice from the Anaheim chilis. If you’re on a low sugar diet, be wary of this one, as it does have a little more sugar than the original patty.

Whether you prefer to use the grill, frying pan, or oven, this meatless burger is sure to impress a crowd. Throw on your favorite toppings and you’ll be ready for a barbecue full of all of the flavor and none of the meat.

Better: Impossible Burger

The Impossible Burger by Impossible Foods has revolutionized meatless eating ever since it was introduced in 2016. With fast-food companies like Burger King lining up to include it on their menus, Impossible Foods proved vegan meat alternatives are not just for niche diets. Each burger contains nineteen grams of protein, fourteen grams of total fat, and zero milligrams of cholesterol. Thanks to artificial flavoring, it smells and tastes just like ground beef.

Impossible Foods also sells ground “beef,” so you can create meatballs, patties, or taco meat. Of all the alternatives, Impossible Foods has received the highest acclaim for tasting the most like real beef, so it’s a slam dunk for vegans and carnivores alike.

Best: MorningStar Farms Garden Veggie Burger

MorningStar Farms’ meatless patty is a fan favorite of plant-based burger lovers. This veggie-filled burger is made with mushrooms, onions, carrots, spinach, and celery. Seeds and grains are also included to give this patty a burger-like consistency.

The best indicator of a veggie burger’s quality isn’t always how closely it resembles meat. In fact, it’s a significant drawback for those who don’t like the taste or texture of beef. Therefore, this ranks the highest on our list, as reviews rave that this veggie burger can outcompete traditional beef patties when made on the grill!

The days of flavorless plant-based beef are gone. Whether you need ground meatless beef for a taco night or just some quick patties for a dinner party, these meatless options bring the best flavors in the supermarket. Next time you hit the shelves, opt for one of these meatless patties — they’re delicious, easy to make, and beneficial for the health of you and your whole family.
