Alisa Fleming ~ I used to be quite the veggie burger connoisseur, and even did a full review and comparison of Amy’s entire vegan veggie burgers line-up. But, my passion waned this past year, and I completely missed sampling the new Sonoma Burger from Amy’s … until now.
I sunk my choppers into the Sonoma Vegan Veggie Burgers this week, sandwiched between two Amy’s Organic Gluten-Free Sandwich Rounds. It was good, and had a pleasant earthy flavor from the combination of grains (quinoa and gluten-free oats), veggies (mushrooms, onions, celery, carrots, garlic, and potatoes), walnuts, and garbanzo flour. As an added bonus, the burgers are dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, non-GMO, and made with mostly organic ingredients.
Since I haven’t been eating a lot of grains as of late, the full blown bun and veggie burger package was a bit overwhelming for my palate. To de-grain it a bit, I changed the game plan on my second veggie burger lunch. When toasted or baked (I baked them, they take just 10 minutes in the oven) the veggie burgers aren’t greasy and are actually nice and firm on the outside. So I toasted up a single sandwich round, slathered it with a little mustard, topped with tomato and avocado (I was out of lettuce), and then put the burger on top to act as the second bun! It worked perfectly and was delicious!
As for preparation, both the burgers and the sandwich rounds are sold in the freezer section, and can be prepared in the oven, toaster, or microwave.
Dietary Notes: By ingredients, both the burgers and buns are Vegan, Vegetarian, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Gluten-Free, Peanut-Free, Soy-Free, and Wheat-Free (the Sandwich Rounds are also Tree Nut-Free), but see the packaging and contact the company for allergen and manufacturing “may contain” labeling.
