The first wave of commercial veggie burgers had issues.
With the taste and texture of Styrofoam, they suffered an inferiority complex. Wanting to be meat, they suffered an identify crisis. Those who ate them suffered, too.

While mushrooms, carrots, corn, onions and red peppers top the list of ingredients, Veggiburgers also contain eggs, soybean flour and soy protein concentrate, which may concern those seeking non-genetically modified food sources. That said, Veggiburgers have the fewest calories (100) and the most protein (12 grams) of our veggie contenders.
All three veggie burgers are quick-cooking and available at supermarkets. Let the evolution continue. Meanwhile, let’s fire up the grill.
