Sprouts Market is usually a great call for meat free options. This in house veggie burger is more in the old-school format, you know the type; thin hockey puck based around soy as the ingredient. The burgers come frozen four to a non-resealable pack.
Cooking: Bake em, pan fry em, air fry em. Just don’t microwave em, huh?
Taste and texture: This was a bland, mushy, meh. Texturally and taste wise there was nothing here to make them leap out of the freezer again for me. There are far better veggie burgers out there. Far. See our list.
Verdict: A disappointingly mediocre veggie burger, albeit one with relatively restrained salt and fat. Maybe worth a look in for those more nutritionally-concerned, but otherwise, skip.
