There are so many different veggie burger brands available at most grocery stores these days. Wondering which is best? Read on to find out! While these are my personal favorites, you may be looking for something else in a veggie burger, so, if you find that you don't like the first one you try, make sure to try another brand until you find one that suits your tastes. Also, if you're eating vegan, be sure to read the ingredients list and label, as some store-bought veggie burgers are... egg-free and dairy-free, but many are not.

Boca's Original Vegan Burger has a very meaty, chewy texture and is lower in fat than most other veggie burgers with just a half a gram of fat per patty. Because it has such a meat-like taste, I find that it can be a bit bland. Try sprucing it up with a bit of garlic salt and a dash of pepper or barbecue sauce before cooking.

This isn't the veggie burger to try if you're looking for a genuinely meaty taste and textures. Made from vegetables rather than a chewy meat substitute, Morningstar Farms' Garden Veggie burger is a lighter and high-fiber veggie burger. If you generally don't like mock meat products, this is the veggie burger for you. It also comes in a new "nugget" format if you're just looking for a snack, rather than a burger, per se. Note that the Morningstar Farms Garden Veggie... patty contains wheat gluten and egg whites, so it is neither gluten-free nor vegan.

It's not exactly a veggie burger, so it doesn't really qualify, but vegan chicken patties are a chicken substitute that can be grilled or cooked and prepared just like a veggie burger and they taste so great I just had to include them! They've got a very chicken-like and smoky flavor that's great on a bun or crumbled into pasta or stir-fries. Boca, Quorn, and Morningstar brands all make a meat-free chicken patty (the Quorn brand is vegetarian but not vegan), and I've never... had one I didn't like. Yummm!
