I didn’t give a damn about Gardenburger Portabella. My E. Coli-free beef burgers (from the Amish) were already on the grill. But that obviously was not good enough for Faux-Vegetarian.
I had to take my azz to the store and get special burgers for my guest – the same chick I asked for chick peas and she gave me only one. One frackin’ pea!
So these are not cow patties. They’ve got Portabella and crimini mushrooms. Brown rice and spinach. Rolled oats and onions. Mozzarella and oat fiber.
Ummm, wait a minute. These sound greedy-good.
Faux-Vegetarian ate one patty. I kept the rest for work……and then fell in love (with the patty, not my job).
There’s so much flavor and hungry goodness! Every single ingredient stands out with fresh, delicious taste. The patty is nice and hearty from the consistency of the brown rice and they cook up quick and easy. Just micro-zap for 2-minutes and let it meet the bun.
I’m totally sold on Gardenburger Portabella and already bought some more. So don’t be a beef snob, okay? Try the vegetarian burger.
Important Note: I saw Faux-Vegetarian eat a cow patty the very next week. And I hope she does not read this post.
