Product review: Aldi's quinoa crunch vegan burger
Although my cholesterol dropped right back down once I followed the medically prescribed, Portfolio diet a few months ago, the MD left it with me to keep doing what I am doing, and incorporate Vegan/meatfree proteins in my diet to keep it in check. Aldi's started carrying this product line, which I wanted to try
Pretty good ingredients
Today's lunch: I cooked my burger as instructed, in the mini convection oven but found that it needed longer to brown-fine. Once assembled, I found that the outer edge or coating was crunchy but the inside was very soft, and liked to come apart. As the burger cooled, it seemed to solidify. Taste was good, I like quinoa burgers, having previously had my own. Good, not AWESOME!. I'll finish the remaining 4 burgers and don't think I'll buy them again-I liked my version better, as it stayed together.
