Amy’s Veggie Burgers are Plant-Based, Vegan, American Classics

4

Amy’s is a vegetarian company specifically, but they don’t forget about their dairy-free consumers. In fact, the entire line-up of Amy’s Veggie Burgers went completely cheese-free and vegan over a decade ago. It includes favorites ranging from the meaty All American to the plant-forward California Burgers.

Tasting Notes for Amy’s Veggie Burgers

Over the years, we’ve bought and tried several varieties of Amy’s Veggie Burgers. I’ve including our notes below with the ones we have sampled. Please feel free to leave your own rating and review below!

Organic Sonoma Burger (gluten-free)

This burger has pleasant earthy flavors. The combination of grains, veggies, walnuts, and garbanzo flour melds together nicely. When baked these veggie burgers aren’t greasy and are actually nice and firm on the outside. I toasted up an Amy’s 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!

Organic California Burger (also available in Light in Sodium)

I skipped the buns and served this veggie burger to my (meat loving) husband and I on salads. It was positively delicious, and Tony loved it!  He requested veggie burger salads for the rest of the week, and said he liked how they didn’t weight him down.  They tasted good, and he actually felt better after eating them!

In terms of the California itself, it was tasty, yet not a burger-like experience. Not that I am complaining, I prefer the veggie taste, but some people like the meat substitute effect. The burger had a deep but mellow flavor. There was just enough salt to make things interesting (we had the regular one). It was a touch soft in the center, yet hearty with a good dose of barley-like grains.  This soft and bready texture certainly worked atop our salads.

Quarter Pound Burger

My husband gave his typical “it’s good” and finished this burger off.  My dad was visiting, and he said, “much better and meatier than those other veggie burgers (Boca).”  Both said that it was a bit “bready,” but they liked it.

The Quarter Pounder was definitely the most burger-like experience of Amy’s Veggie Burgers. It easily filled out a sizable bun, and satisfied more as a real meal. It was lightly sweet and nutty in both flavor and texture.  It wasn’t what I would call meaty, but hearty and tasty in its own right. I still prefer my veggie burgers to be a bit more “veggie” inspired, but this is the veggie burger I would probably pick to serve at barbecues.

All American Burger

Fearing a sweet ketchup flavored veggie burger, I was pleased by the lightly spiced flavor. The texture was more crumbly than mushy, and it held up pretty well between a bun.  It might be the one I would choose to have at a barbecue alongside the Quarter Pounder, to suit lighter appetites.

The bits of grain gave it a heartier chew, making the All American more like a veggie burger hybrid.  We enjoyed the All American atop our veggie burger salads, too. It did crumble nicely onto our salads, but I think it’s still better in the burger format.

  1. I thiink I have tried every single one of these veggie burgers! In fact I bought more today. I like the all Americaan quite a bit. I started eating these burgers for the soy.. it was recommended by my Dr to get more soy in my diet. At the time I thought I would like them at all but they truly are good. The only thing is on the grill they did dry out quickly and were dome long before I thought they would be. For me, the toaster oven did the best job.

  2. I really enjoy Amy’s products. All of their burgers are great, but I have to say the All American is my favorite! of the ones that I’ve tried. Haven’t tried the Bistro burger, but will keep my eye out for it: sounds good!

    Looking at Amy’s veggie burgers, and see that only one of 5 is soy free.
    Is Hexane included in your the soy products? It is certainly used in 90 percent
    of all veggie burgers. And is highly toxic.
