And last, but certainly not least, this week is my review of Dr. Fuhrman’s Better Burgers. I enjoyed them for lunch one day and dinner the next with a side of Cauliflower Spinach Mashed “Potatoes.”
It’s been so long since I have actually tasted a real live cow burger that I have no idea whether or not these would satisfy a meat eater. But they might. If you have made these and tested them out on your SAD eating relatives, please let us know what their impression was!
Did I like it? Not nearly as my as my husband did, but I didn’t put them on a bun with lettuce, tomato, pickles, and sugar free ketchup. Had I done that, I might have loved them.
Was it easy to make with readily available ingredients? The ingredients are standard, but it was quite a time consuming process. The recipe makes eight burgers, so it’s worth the time because you get many meals out of it.
What specifically did I like about the recipe? I’m a big fan of cooked mushrooms, and these are basically mushroom walnut burgers.
What specifically didn’t I like about the recipe? I can’t describe it, but the flavor just wasn’t my favorite. But I don’t share that opinion with my husband. And again, the nuts! But this time, I just went ahead and used all of the nuts that the recipe called for just to see if the recipe was outstanding with the full amount (each burger is 1/2 ounce of nuts, or half of my nut allotment for the day).
Did my husband like it? He said these were the best veggie burgers I had ever made!
Did my teenage daughter like it? N/A
Did my eight or five year old try it? N/A
Would I make it again? Maybe–just because my husband loved them so much! They will probably make it on to my Fourth of July Veggie Burger Tasting Party menu.
Is there anything I would do to improve on it if I made it again? I was thinking that I would like to replace all or most of the walnuts with cooked lentils, and that is exactly what I might try next with this recipe.
Overall Grade (completely unscientific, I admit): A-
