Well, they didn't have any ground beef. They did have- veggie burgers!
I was pretty excited about this. Brian was less excited, but he's always open to bring something new. I love veggie burgers. I remember when I was younger I tried one at camp because I was still hungry after my hot dog and there were only veggie burgers left, but I thought it was so good. I remember rice and mushrooms in that one.
Since then, I haven't loved a lot of other veggie burgers that you can buy in a store. I am not at all interested in imitation meat. If I want something to taste like meat, I'm going to eat meat. Instead, I like my veggie burgers to be completely different- they should taste like vegetables! I still like rice burgers, and I've made some bean based burgers too (kind of like falafel). This is on my to-do list now for when I am able to cook again!
I bought NoBull Burgers, which I've read about on a bunch of other blogs and have heard good things. They are local and organic with a lentil and barley base. Also noticeable are the carrots, spinach and onion. They have spelt too, so while they are wheat-free, they're not gluten-free. The combination of veggies and some herbs was really incredible. And this is coming from someone who once made a lentil loaf and did not eat it- letting food go to waste is pretty much unheard of for me, so I was a little wary of a lentil base.
Brian made the burgers with a side of kale.
I bought the buns we used at Glen's too, and they were a bit bread, so I'm not sure I'll buy them again. I ended up only using one bun and two burgers.
What was the final verdict? I loved them and Brian didn't (he still ate two, so even he thought they were way better than the lentil loaf). I didn't love the price, so chances are I'll just make my own veggie burgers for the most part, but I do like having another option.
Today is a big day- I'm heading to see a thoracic surgeon who will check on the hole in my lung. If its fixed, I am free to go, and if not, he will probably schedule a surgery to go in and fix it. Let's hope for a happy Friday!
