Like most veggie burgers, these are a little "grain on grain" in a bun, but the flavors are delicious and they easily stand on their own as a main or side. We loved them most over salad or roasted vegetables, but the burger and sandwich formats were pretty darn good, too.

Looking for a new dairy-free and vegan burger option? So many brands sneak in cheese or eggs, but there is a new kid on the veggie burger block that not only forgoes dairy and eggs, but also touts a soy-free, gluten-free, peanut-free, corn-free, nut-free profile, too. And I’ve got some excellent news. Qrunch Quinoa Burgers actually taste good in all of these mediums (we trialed each and every one)…

Qrunch Quinoa Burgers - Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Vegan

In terms of preparation, Qrunch Burgers couldn’t be easier. Grill them for summer barbecues, bake them for meals, or toast them for a quick lunch. All methods yield similar results: a crispy exterior with a tender, but not mushy, interior that offers texture and substance thanks to the hearty blend of millet, quinoa, and vegetables in each variety. The Sweet Curry and Green Chile flavors have lentils and beans, respectively, for that slightly soft “bean burger” consistency.

Speaking of the different flavors, Qrunch Quinoa Burgers leapt onto the scene with four options right from the get go. This company doesn’t mess around. We loved all varieties, most of which had a surprising kick. They weren’t hot, just fragrant or pleasantly spicy. Here’s the full line-up:

  1. trader joes is now selling quinoa burgers that look almost identical to the Qrunch ones,
    it is a different list of ingredients but I bet that Qrunch makes them for TJ

  2. We recently tried the Qrunch Quinoa burgers, regular flavor, and really enjoyed the flavor and texture. I fixed them in the microwave exactly as instructed on the package. They came out perfect. I enjoyed not having the same flavor of the soy burgers that we usually get. They were very light and mildly seasoned. I notice that sometimes veggie meats are heavenly seasoned and my stomach can’t handle it.

  3. They look delicious, and I’ve seen them — it is just frustrating when the “burger” option is always so low in protein. So many veg (especially when gluten-free) burgers tend to rely on the carbohydrate fillers, and while I am not against carbohydrates (considering my books!), if I am having a burger, I would like it to provide me with more protein! They’re all so minimal.

    But they do look like something I’d want to try, regardless! Thanks for the review, Alisa.

    • Laurie, I usually skip the bun with veggie burgers and make veggie burger salads. Then you can add high protein ngredients to the salad or even make a higher protein dressing!

  4. I love these!!! I have had the original and the spicy Italian (which had more of a ‘kick’ than I thought they would) and they are both great. I like the flavor and the crispy texture. Would love to try the green chile and sweet curry but haven’t seen them yet.

  5. Thanks for the review. They were on sale for $4 at my local grocery store (!) and I picked some up but haven’t tried them yet. As a vegan I’m partial to Amy’s California burger, but I’m looking forward to trying these out!
