It seems like there is no shortage of veggie burger options these days! Between the pulses, vegetables, and grains, we asked ourselves: what else can we possibly put in patty form? Well, this past week, Tofurky answered that very question for us and the answer is hemp!

The company’s newest product, the “Hearty Hemp Burger” is such a game-changer, we’re shocked we didn’t think of it ourselves! These patties are primarily composed of organic long-grain brown rice, onions, mushrooms, whole grain oats, and hulled hemp seed! With just one patty containing seven grams of protein, four grams of fiber, and less than five grams of fat, this patty is a meal you can feel good about!

Tofurky’s decision to branch from the conventional veggie patty ingredients to include hemp seed reveals of a larger trend in the industry towards cleaner protein. And what is as nutritious as hemp? The “superseed” has an impressive list of benefits! Some of the most notable health benefits include the fact that a mere 1.5-tablespoon serving of hemp seeds contains five grams of protein, 86 milligrams of magnesium, and 10 percent daily value of iron, hemp seeds contain all ten of the essential amino acids, and hemp is extremely digestible. No bloating feeling after this burger!

These new burgers are a great option for people who don’t necessarily want to recreate the taste of hamburgers but really want a hearty vegetable burger. These burgers provide ample sustenance and  have a mild flavor profile. Mellow brown-rice taste, with hints of garlic and rosemary, make it a versatile patty that you can adorn in a number of ways! Vegan pesto aioli, chunky mango salsa, or a giant dollop of guacamole would all taste great on this burger. You probably don’t need any help in that department, though!

Read the ingredients. Yeast extract? = MSG. This is deception.
