This week we’ve got a new recipe for you: green bean puree burgers. These are, and I’ll be the first to admit it, a little bit weird. Alright, maybe a lot weird. In fact, they may even be an acquired taste. But if you LOVE green beans, you’re going to like them.
This week, we’re chatting about the Strong Roots kale and quinoa burgers. We picked them up in our local Waitrose, but we hear tell that they are also available in Tesco and beyond.
Here’s what they have to say about their product:

With its crisp quinoa crust, mixed vegetables and no-artificial flavours, they bake to a tasty and crisp burger. They are suitable for a variety of uses such as a starter, a side or simply as a burger in a bun!

It’s hard to believe we’ve never covered the Linda McCartney Mozzarella Burger before. After all, we’ve been eating it for years. Somehow, however, this one slipped through the net. We’re changing that today, with a look at this freezer option and what you can expect from it.
I’ve had my lovely adult braces in for four months now, so it seems like time to share what I’ve learned about food for braces. I read a lot before I had them put in about what not to eat, but I didn’t read a lot about what I could eat. There wasn’t much explanation of the logic behind it, either.
It’s time for a look back at our year with the VegBurge Best of 2017 Awards. We’re giving props to the brands, restaurants, pubs, and burgers that deserve it. Without further ado, the announcements are as follows…
Best Recipe of 2017
This one is chosen by you lot. We analysed data from Instagram, Twitter, website stats, and YouTube to come up with the recipe that you loved the most. The winner is:
This week’s recipe is a little late to give you all time to recover from Christmas, and these black bean dip burritos might be just what you need as an antidote to the festive menu. They’re a little bit off the beaten track as we’re actually making a dip, but it also works as a fantastic burrito filling.
We were in London recently and stopped off at Chik’n to try their Not So Chik’n sandwich (or a burger, to you and me). We found them on Baker Street, not far from the tube, and got our orders in.
It’s very much a fast food experience in that you place an order at the till, stand and wait for your food to come out, and then sit and eat or take it away. However, I did find the staff very attentive, offering to bring the tray over for us and checking that everything was fine with our order.
This week our recipe is oh-so-indulgent pear French toasts, drenched in sweetness and perfect for special occasions. If you ate these every day you’d probably end up diabetic, but for a festive treat, they certainly do the trick.
We had these for an early lunch/late brunch and even then the sweetness was very heavy, so if you don’t have a sweet tooth, they probably won’t be too your liking. But if you’re the type to pour sugar over your cereal, they will go down a storm.
It’s time for a new feature: a battle of the brands, with vegan ribs in the spotlight. We’ve been trying vegan ribs for a while now and have come to find two of the best – but how do they match up, and which is better? Let’s find out…
