Boca Grilled Vegetable Burger

Okay, I admit - I've had these in my freezer for a long time. Someone else ate one a while back, but I hadn't gotten to them until very recently. So here they come: Boca Grilled Vegetable Burger.

As per my usual veggie burger strategy, I popped it into a skillet with some oil. Flipped it once, got it nicely browned on each side, and threw it onto a bun.

The verdict? Well, after I got past the mild freezer-flavor, all I could really taste was bell pepper. According to the website, there's a ton of stuff in here, but I couldn't pick anything else out. And, thinking back to the person who had tried them way back when, she wasn't terribly enthusiastic about them either. So I don't think the extra time in the freezer affected them TOO much.

The texture was sort of the standard Boca burger texture, which was fairly chewy and burger-like, which is good, but several other examples of their burgers are just better, so I don't think I can really recommend this one in particular.

The experience:
Texture - nicely chewy
Flavor - kind of bell pepper-y but not much else

Final grade for this attempt: C-

  1. I actually liked these but only when I put some seasoning on it, with a few slices avocado, tomatoes and romaine lettuce along with a tad of mayo. Try It!
