Kosher Gardenburgers

I noticed that there are varieties of Gardenbuger that are now under the kosher supervision of OK Labs (OK D).

      I don't remember the specific varieties that I saw in Fairway.

      1. re: havdalahclub

        There are now notations on each Gardenburger product page as to its kosher status. I haven't found the hashgacha yet though.


    2. Too bad Boca Burgers hasn't come around. I hear they are pretty good.

        Saw these at fairway too. I bought the flame grilled burgers and was not impressed. I actually threw them out. I will stick with Morningstar Farms.

          Morningstar Farms' Chipotle Black Bean burger is the best alternative burger I've found. It's good because it's not trying to be a meat substitute. Fantastic flavor.

            I love those burgers! used to eat them every day for lunch. I like them with a sweet salsa.

              Easily the best "fake" burger out there.

              1. re: ferret

                I would say it's definitely one of the best. I also like the Dr Praeger's veggie burgers- but they're not really a 'fake meat' burger.

                1. re: cheesecake17

                  Praeger's are very light on seasoning. Okay for some people, but I generally have to add a lot to them.

                  1. re: ferret

                    i don't eat them plain. usually I add mustard and veggies to a sandwich with a Praeger's burger.

                  2. re: cheesecake17

                    How do you keep them from crumbling? Every time I tried them they went to pieces the second I touched them.

                    1. re: CloggieGirl

                      I usually defrost for 30 seconds in the microwave before cooking them on foil in the toaster. I cook until almost burnt.. much longer than the cooking time on the box.

                      1. re: cheesecake17

                        Praeger's buffallo chicken burgers are very good too.

            2. re: azna29

              The Gardenburger flame grilled ones are bad but the traditional ones are pretty good--if you're looking for a grainy type veggie burger.
