Best Vegan Burger

Best Vegan Burger

Fast Company set out to find the best vegan burger.

Who doesn’t like a good burger? Most people love burgers. Whether you are a vegan, a vegetarian, an omnivore or anything in-between, the likelihood is that you love burgers.

Veganism is on the rise. So Fast Company went to three eateries in New York City to try and find the best vegan burger. I like that they aren’t necessarily looking for the burger that tastes the most like meat, as that’s not really the point — or maybe for you, that exactly is the point.  Regardless, they compared the Impossible Burger which is selling at White Castle, yes they held the cheese so that it’s a vegan burger, not just a veggie burger.

To Burger Joints

They also looked at the Beet Burger from Shake Shack and two burgers from the vegan chain: by Chloe.

With 600% percent more Americans identifying as vegans today than just 3 years ago, imitation meat burgers are growing in popularity. We (Fast Company) went on a quest to find NYC’s best vegan burger.

and Beyond

Granted, these are far from the only vegan burgers are the market. For one, they didn’t even bother tasting the Beyond Burger. Many people consider this the best vegan burger. It’s not hard to find. The Beyond Burger is available at various eateries in New York. The Beyond Burger is taking over New York. Therefore, it’s surprising that this tasty burger wasn’t including in their comparison. Further, this is just a sampling of three eateries’ offerings and just one or two tasters. It’s hard to say that there is a definitive best vegan burger to be determined here. These are just their opinions; what is best, it’s highly subjective.

Regardless, I am happy to say that there are many, many options for vegans these days and many of them are incredibly delicious and satisfying.

Plant Based Chocolate Pudding

Plant Based Chocolate Pudding

Plant Based Chocolate Pudding

This is for all those chocoholics out there and for those who enjoy rich and creamy pudding. BUT, this recipe has an added bonus. It is good for you! No fillers, artificial flavoring or questionable ingredients. This pudding is delicious and nutritious. To give this treat an extra bump of nutrition, you can garnish it with fresh berries, coconut shavings or chia seeds.

I’d suggest soaking the dates in the almond milk for about an hour or so, especially if the dates are hard. Just put the dates and almond milk in the blender jar and leave it on the counter. I make a lot of raw food recipes and pretty much always soak dates before using them since you can’t always get really soft ones.

Find the recipe here

Some people aren’t all that keen on using avocados in their pudding. I always revert back to one of my tried and true recipes using silken tofu. But I don’t have any issues with soy, although I know many do.

Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard

Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard

Does anyone out there miss Blizzards? You know, the ice cream dessert served by Dairy Queen that is full of crumbled up cookies or candy bars. I recently came up with this recipe and it brought me back to those days. It tastes just like a chocolate ice cream, Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard!  I bet you can’t wait to take a scoop of this one. The special thing about this recipe is that it tastes super dangerous without all the guilt that a 760 calorie Dairy Queen Blizzard has.

OK, you might not think this is healthy, but watch this video, you may be surprised. It’s a quick video whihc hows how to replace Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and still enjoy the taste, but remain true to your plant-based diet. Our good friends from The Whole Food Plant Based Cooking Show present excellent, nutricious ingredinets to help make this decadent, declicious shake…

She makes Nice Cream – ice cream mainly from bananas and almond milk. Her ice cream is SUPER chocolaty adding lots and lots of chocolate powder making her beverage similar to a peanut butter cup.

Enjoy this recipe as often as you want; it’s healthier than you might think.
