What’s the Absolute Best Store-Bought Veggie Burger? 

For a long time, I was a Morning Star Garden Veggie Burger gal when it came to store-bought veggie burgers. You could find me piling two patties layered with avocado slices (yep, I go H.A.M. when it comes to veggie burgers) onto a potato bun at any summer BBQ you found me at. But then I stopped eating soy and I had a momentary veggie-burger crisis. Would I EVER find a good veggie burger again?!?!?!

The answer was yes. First I found the Field Roast FieldBurger, which I thought was the very best veggie burger I’d ever had. (It’s juicy, guys — a juicy veggie burger!) But then, this past weekend, I sampled the Beyond Meat Beyond Burger — which is designed to mimic a true beef burger in texture and color (it’s colored with beet juice) —  at Pennsylvania Avenue’s shiny new Whole Foods, and I think it won me over.

But before I decide that I’ve found a new favorite store-bought veggie burger, I figured I’d pose the all-important question to you guys: What’s the absolute best store-bought veggie burger you’ve tried? Because we already know where the best restaurant veggie burgers in Philly are, but sometimes you want to chow down on a veggie burger from the comfort of your own couch.

10 Nutritional Yeast Recipes to Try Now (Plus Why You Should Be Eating It)

nutritional yeast
It’s yellow, savory, and works great as a pasta topping — and nope, it’s not cheese. Still stumped? Well, believe it or not, we’re talking about yeast. Yes, yeast. But not just any yeast. We’re talkin’ about the flavorful and B vitamin-packed, protein-packed ingredient known as nutritional yeast, AKA the guilt-free cheese alternative loved by vegans all over.

Unlike regular yeast, nutritional yeast, also known as nooch, (terrible nickname, we know) is inactive, so it won’t make bread rise but it still does a phenomenal job of rising to the occasion (see what we did there?) when you’re looking to add some flavor to a healthy dish. And if you’re not sure where to start, we’ve got some ideas for you: From artichoke dip to avocado spread to Caesar salads, take your pick!
