It’s Moo

Joey: …if he doesn’t like you, this is all a moo point.
Rachel:
Huh. A moo point?
Joey:
Yeah, it’s like a cow’s opinion. It just doesn’t matter. It’s moo.

Fess up people; I’m not the only one who gets super-excited whenever I come across a new product, am I?

Didn’t think so.

When I spotted these burgers during my latest trip to Whole Foods, I immediately snatched up a box of each variety. I haven’t yet tried the Cluckfree burgers, but I’m lovin’ the Moophreys!  They’re soft and chewy, with a slight—but not overpowering—bacon taste.  My only qualm with the burgers is that, after microwaving, the edges dry out a little.  But this is a minor detail.  The burgers are so flavorful that the dry edges barely detract from my enjoyment of them.

These burgers have such a robust taste that I like to eat them plain, without so much as a thought of reaching for ketchup. Moophreys are also delicious on a bed of spinach or crumbled into a salad. And Moophrey burgers have the one-up on my other faves. Each burger is packed with 16 grams of protein! Moophrey burgers are definitely on my list to buy again.  I should’ve known they’d be good; they’re made by the same company (Food for Life) that produces the famed Ezekiel breads and pitas.

    you just made my day. i love that episode of friends. joey is too cute for words… and i lovehow phoebe is the vegetarian 😉 16g of protein is so amazing for a burger!

  2. Meg says

    My fave meatless protein source would have to be peanut butter, hands down. I don’t think I’ve been a day without peanut butter in a long while, and I like it that way 😉 it’s an addiction!

    I’ve never seen those burgs before! I’ll have to keep an eye open for em’ when I make a trip to Whole Foods this week!

    Hey.. about the amaranth.. I bet some companies sell it in packages but I found it in the bulk bins at my Whole Foods. It’s so worth it.. at least I think so 😀

    And thanks for the bulgar recipe suggestions.

    I definitely go bizerk when I see a new product around. It’s just so exciting when you get to try something new.. I agree with you completely.

    I must have missed that episode! So funny.

    Favorite protein. . . hmmm. . . gotta say tofu, with tempeh a close second. And I used to HATE tofu!

  5. Katie says

    Mmmm this looks really good! I’m curious to try the “chicken” patties! I like making my own trail mix for protein, free of added oil and salt, just the pure nutty and seed goodness! Second choice: tofu!

  6. laci says

    Hooray for moo burgers and betty spegetti!
    My fav. protien… nuts/nutbutters, garbanzo beans/hummus/beans and verstile tofu 🙂
    Obviously, these yeild more than one can imagine! (Home made black bean burgers, anyone?)

  7. Christine says

    Gummy spaghetti? Oh my gosh I need to try to make your Betty Spaghetti!!!!!! I wonder why the noodles get that way after being marinaded?

  8. Brandi C. says

    I’m so ELATED that you did this post. I’ve been eyeballing those burgers my past two trips to WFM trying to decide if I should try them or not. I’m DEFINITELY buying a box now =] Let me Know how the Cluckfree burgers go PWEASE MA’AM!

  9. jrsimon56 says

    Oooooohhh!!! What a fun post! I wish my Whole Foods wasn’t total madness. I wish I could slowly browse all the beautiful aisles. But, being in mid-town Manhattan, I can’t browse…whomp, whomp! Needless to say, I’ll keep my eyes open for these great burgers!

  10. Shelby says

    Friends is one of my favorite shows ever!!! My mom got me hooked and we always watch it together.

    Awesome new burgers!

    Fav protein source? Chickpeas or PB!

  11. melomeals: Vegan For $3.33 a Day says

    Tofu is my favorite with legumes being my second favorite..

    I like to drench my pasta in sauce and really cook it in there too..

  12. broccolihut says

    Wow, I’ve never seen either of those products anywhere…maybe it’s a Texas thing?

    Fave meatless protein source: tofu, with hummus as a close second.

  13. Cecilia says

    LOL at the names off those meatless patties 😀 MOOOOOOooooo free, moophrey patty …. tsk tsk!

    As for fav protein source – well looks like broccoli is my fav source, thanks for letting me know Sarah!!

    p.s.: I miss ya posts SO MUCH …. moi been studying for mid sem lately … ugh!!! So glad to be back 😀

  14. Natalie says

    :O And judging by the brand Food For Life, I trust the ingredients aren’t wacky and overly processed! SUch a win win I tell you! My favorite protein source would have to be Tofurkey Deli Slices mmm 🙂

  15. Sally says

    Oh, I’ve tried Moophrey burgers too! I really liked them! My favorite non-meat protein source is peanut butter (and pretty much every other type of nut 🙂 )

  16. Bianca-Vegan Crunk says

    I’ll have to look for those burgers. I like all the Food for Life products I’ve tried. My favorite protein source is probably tempeh…but tofu it a close second.

  17. DJ says

    I love a good veggie burger – they’re an invaluable addition to any freezer compartment and often feature in our Saturday night suppers!
