Hello everyone! Today I am going to introduce a new segment on my blog, The Veggie Burger Chronicles. As all you vegetarians know, a major staple in out diet is veggie burgers. Mostly because if you decide to go out to eat with your meat eating friends and family, pretty much the only thing you will find to eat on most restaurant menus is a veggie burger. But that's ok with me since they are delicious! Many frozen food brands like Boca and Garden Burger, which some restaurants serve. However many make their own veggie patties with a variety of ingredients like veggie, beans, lentils, and even quinoa!
I have decided to show you guys all the different veggie burgers I have from local restaurants to chains, and even the frozen brands you can buy in your own super market! I find that most veggie burgers fall into two categories the ones that are made to look like meat, and the ones made to look like veggies. I tend to like the ones that you can see the vegetables in it. The meat-like ones taste to meaty for me, and unless I can read what's in them myself, I am wary of them.
For the first installment of the Veggie Burger Chronicles, I am going to show you a veggie burger I had at a local diner by my house, The Scarsdale Metro Restaurant. My mom actually took my brother, sister-in-law, and I there over the summer during our last visit. Not only do they have a great veggie burger, they also have a whole PAGE of different salads! Now, normally I am not a big salad person, but they had so many kinds to ones with fresh veggies, and my favorite with goat cheese and avocado, mmm! So I knew that I needed to go back again...and again and again!
This Veggie burger came just like the meat ones do, with lettuce, tomato, coleslaw, pickles and fries. Oh the fries! Some of the best fries I have had in a long time! They reminded me of McDonald's fries, at least I think they do, since its been 11 years since I had them. They were so salty and crunchy, yum!
As you can see, this burger is the veggie packed kind. You can even see the soy beans in it, so you know you are getting lots of protein in this burger. This was so delicious, packed with veggies and spices. Of course I loved it, since I made sure to come back just to have it again, or maybe it was for the fries :-P
Do you like the the meaty, or veggie veggie burgers? What are some of your favorite local veggie burger spots?
Bye from the Veggie Side!
