fig marmalade gardein veggie burger*



have you ever had one of those days that you think you'll go crazy if you don't sink your teeth into something besides a salad or pasta? 

yesterday was that kind of day.

this is a gardein veggie burger, one of the best tasting veggie burgers i've ever had.  i recently discovered this new brand and i couldn't be happier.  pronounced gardeen, it's a combination of garden and protein.

 i combined the patty, with an old-fashioned fluffy white bun and hipstered it up by smearing it with homemade fig marmalade, fresh garden lettuces, sweet maui onions, chopped tomatoes and spicy mustard. 
yum.


*no animals were harmed making this burger.

  1. It doesn't look like that brand is in our area yet. Our current favorites are Morningstar mushroom or black bean burgers. I'll have to gussy up some burgers next time we have them!

  2. Yum, I am always looking for a great veggie burger. I am allergic to soy so I have to be careful. Sounds great! Hugs, Bonnie

    2. Bonnie,

      If you haven't tried Amy's California Veggie Burgers, they don't have soy

  3. That really does look good and I think the fig marmalade and sweet maui onions must have made it over the top delicious. I'm sauteing shallots right now and wish I had Gardein burger to put them on!

  5. What brand of buns do you use? The only buns I have been able to find without dairy in them are Oroweat's whole wheat hamburger buns. We check the ingredients each time we buy them because last year without warning Oroweat begin adding dairy to their whole wheat bread. If they do that with their buns, don't know what we will use.

  7. Sounds great. I think I'll just have fig jam and mustard, please. Hold the fries.

  8. OMG, Janet...I devour every one of your recipes and this will be no different! I just received some fig jam and I love Gardein, too and the baked potato or sweet potato fries, homemade, are like the icing on the cake...or, in this case, the olive oil on the root!
    Yummy!

  10. Hello Janet:
    This really does look a delicious way of healthy eating. Home made fig marmalade sounds absolutely perfect. Do you have it to export?!!

  11. That looks delicious, I'm salivating and it's only just gone 8am. I love a vegeburger but I've never tried fig marmalade to accompany it. x

  18. Boca Chik'n patty, apricot fruit spread, spicy mustard, sweet onion, chopped cherry tomatoes, and red leaf lettuce on a fluffy bun with mashed sweet potatoes flavored up with Earth Balance. Not quite like yours, but tasted so good, I think I came close. Keep the wonderful posts coming! Thank you-Thank you-and thank you again.

  19. The fig marmalade sounds delicious! Definitely something I would love to try. :) Thanks for the link to the Pick Your Own website, too. We have plans to start a garden this year, plus I also plan to start canning my own fruits and veggies, so I will be visiting the site quite often.

    Btw, I am making the Butternut squash soup today. Thank you for the recipe! :)

  23. Hi Janet,

    I didn't know Gardein made veggie burgers, I've only seen the "meat" substitutes. I will have to look for them at the store.
