How Does It Taste? This is a nice-tasting alternative to the more processed pizza pockets on the market.

Nutrition Information: 1 pocket has 310 calories, 14 g protein, 42 g carbohydrate, 10 g fat, 3.5 g saturated fat, 15 mg cholesterol, 4 g fiber, 450 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 29%. (10% Daily Value for Vitamin A, 20% Daily Value for calcium)

 

Amy’s All American Veggie Burger, made with organic vegetables & grains. The first 10 ingredients are wholesome enough: organic onions, organic mushrooms, filtered water, wheat gluten, textured soy protein concentrate, organic bulgur wheat, organic celery, organic carrots, organic walnuts, and organic oats.

How Does It Taste? It's a tasty burger with a great texture. I suggest pan-frying your burger with a little olive oil cooking spray. After it's cooked, add condiments like sundried tomato bruschetta sauce, or your favorite mustard or salsa.

Nutrition Information: 1 burger has 120 calories, 10 grams protein, 3 grams fat, 0 gram saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 15 g carbohydrate, 3 grams fiber, 390 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 22.5%. (15% Daily Value for Vitamin A)

 

Gardenburger (Original). The first five ingredients are cooked brown rice, vegetables (mushrooms, onions), water, rolled oats, and bulgur wheat (hydrated).

How Does It Taste? This is Gardenburger’s top-selling burger for a reason. It has the same great flavor and texture that helped define veggie burgers many years ago.

Nutrition Information: 1 burger has 100 calories, 5 g protein, 14 g carbohydrate, 3.5 g fat, 1 g saturated fat, 5 mg cholesterol, 5 grams fiber, 420 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 31.5%.

 

BocaGardenVegetable Meatless Burger. The first five ingredients are water, organic textured soy flour, organic zucchini, organic red bell peppers, and organic textured wheat.

How Does It Taste? The mild flavor works well with stronger flavored toppings and condiments, like stone-ground mustard or spicy BBQ sauce.

Nutrition Information: 1 burger has 130 calories, 15 grams protein, 3 grams fat, 0 gram saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 9 grams carbohydrate, 4 grams fiber, 400 mg sodium. (10% Daily Value for calcium)

 

Boca Italian Meatless Sausage (contains eggs). The first five ingredients are water, soy protein isolate, expeller pressed canola oil, textured soy protein concentrate, and egg whites.

How Does It Taste? The texture is far from a real Italian sausage, but isn’t altogether unappetizing. The flavor is pretty good; I had no problem finishing the whole sausage. These would work well in dishes calling for whole or sliced Italian sausage, like marinara sauce for pasta.

Nutrition Information: 1 sausage (2.5 ounces) has 130 calories, 13 g protein, 6 g carbohydrate, 6 g fat, 0 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 1 g fiber, 650 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 41%.
