    yeah, most vegetarians I know have no interest in a beef-like veggie burger. I think the biggest market for those is carnivores who want to occasionally eat something moderately more healthy. Burger King even launched an impossible burger whopper recently, apparently sold out quickly.

    btw, lots of the frozen vegetarian foods found in markets aren't necessarily very healthy, often heavily processed with high sodium content.

    None of these things are that healthy but I don't feel the need to eat healthily every single day. I don't get sick too often. My mind works ok. I'm slim. I'm alright.

    a freshly made veggie burger is healthy, it's the factory-made ones that are problematic.

    honestly can't wait until HMG chimes in here. I need to find that Michael-jackson-eating-popcorn gif.

    Well yeah, the market for the impossible burger stuff is for meat eaters who want to have their cake and eat it. Its potentially one of many things that could help us stave off armageddon by reducing dependence on the toxic livestock and animal farming industries that are doing untold harm to climate, biodiversity and health (cue HMGovt with some dodgy study that shows that beef is better for the environment under very particular and specialised circumstances, and that bathing in pigs blood reduces cancer risk).

    I've been a vegetarian for a few years and it is a hell of a lot easier than when i was one previously...

    Leon have recently upped their non meat burger game with something called the Love Burger. It's spoilt by their baked fries which are not chips and you seem to get about seven in a portion.
    i haven't had a good jackfruit burger as it seems to me that they are always far too sweet.
    I know this is a burger thread but the wagamamma vegan katsu burger is decent.

    The love burger is certainly better than their previous effort, the plant burger, which was a disaster. It just fell apart. Wallpaper paste and cauliflower or something. The love burger is more a meat imitation with some slightly dubious vegan cheese but I'll eat it in a fix. By and large the food at Leon has declined precipitously since, say 2010 when it seemed quite flash.... But that's always the way...

    Honest burger do a more vegetable based fritter thing which I've had twice. It's not bad, but it's not my favourite format for a vegeburger and I hate Rosemary fries which they make compulsory as part of your order.

    superiority burger in NYC is a small shop that often has a line out the door, consensus here seems to be it's the best of the veggie burger lot. opened by a chef formerly at a four-star restaurant who came up with his own version (not expensive, though, it's just a small storefront for mostly takeaway orders). I've never had the patience to wait in line for one.
