Battle of the Veggie Burgers!

Battle of the Veggie Burgers!

Veggie burgers are a quick, nutritious and tasty meal option. They’re a great choice for kids, new vegetarians and vegans, and even staunch meat eaters! While it’s fun to grill those patties during the summer, veggie burgers are a year-round staple in many households.

More good news: the days of boring veggie burgers and limited options are over! There are more brands and flavors to choose from than ever before, including plenty of vegan and gluten-free varieties.

The graphic below compares six popular, commercially available veggie burgers based on calories, total fat content, fiber, and protein. Varieties profiled include: Amy’s Bistro Burgers, Boca Vegan Organic, Dr. Praeger’s California Burger, Gardenburger Black Bean  Burger, Morningstar Farms Vegan Burger, Qrunch Burgers Original and Sunshine Burgers Original.

Note: All six burgers are vegan, and Amy’s Bistro Burger, Original Qrunch Burger, and Original Sunshine Burger are gluten-free. Dr. Praeger’s also makes a gluten-free variety of their California Burger, not profiled here.
