I was shopping at my local Target and found this very realistic looking vegan burger by a company named Beyond Meat. So I grabbed a pack and gave it try. Here’s what I thought.
When I first opened the package I noticed a strong plastic smell so I was a little worried about what I was about to put into my body. I pan fried the burgers following the directions on the back. I have to say, these burgers taste great! By far, the most realistic looking and tasting vegan burger I’ve ever had. The texture was very similar to real ground beef and so was the taste. However, after eating the burger I noticed that my mouth tasted like plastic and my husband and I were both burping up a plastic tasting air. We ate completely different from each other earlier in the day and came to the conclusion that it had to be from the burgers. So they did not settle well in our stomach but we may try them again. Next time, we’ll cook them on the grill where they can air out more and hopefully that will add a smoky flavor. They are also pretty expensive at $5.99 for two burgers (at Target). I did also see them at Whole Foods. It’s also important to note that the burgers didn’t shrink when I cooked them.
I served the burgers with spicy yellow mustard and ketchup with a vegan Cesar Salad and blackberries.
