Tip for vegan-proof burgers & nuggets

Today's post is a quick one (blogging on an iPad with very bad wifi turns out to be less than ideal), but I really couldn't help but sharing this tip. For all you vegetarians and vegans in Belgium, I found a super tasty alternative to burgers and nuggets. While I don't think that there should necessarily be any "plant" copies of meat, I do think it's nice to have the option. Maybe you're just transitioning to a more plant-based diet, maybe you don't want to feel left out on a BBQ night with friends or maybe you want to trick your boyfriend into thinking he's eating meat while you prepared him a vegan meal (easier than you may think!) Whatever the reason may be, I've found the best veggie burger and nugget alternative!

The brand is called Garden Gourmet and they have a range of vegetarian and vegan meal replacements. So far I've only tried the nuggets and the veggie burger since these are vegan. The burger has a very nice smoky flavour, you'd really think that this was just a regular burger grilled on the barbecue. It's not dry and bland like some other veggie burgers I've tried, but super delicious! The nuggets are equally good, haven't got a single bad thing to say about them.

Because it's not raw like meat, it only takes a few minutes to prepare. I like to fry the nuggets and burgers in a pan with a bit of oil, but you can also pop them into a hot oven for 5-10 minutes. I had lots of quinoa leftover so I ate the nuggets and burgers for lunch with quinoa; avocado and some vegetables. The perfect high protein vegan meal!

You can buy Garden Gourmet products at Delhaize in Belgium. The veggie burgers cost €2.65 (for two) and the nuggets are €2.75. If you see this brand in any other shop abroad let me know!
