Quorn Turk'y Burger

One day while looking for something to make for lunch, buried deep in the freezer, I found a box of Quorn Turk'y Burger. Oh yay - I'm already a fan of Quorn Naked Cutlets - so I figured this would similarly result in something quick and tasty for lunch.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 burger (70 grams)
Calories: 90
Total Fat: 4 grams, 6%
Saturated Fat: 0.5 grams, 3%
Sodium: 200 mg, 8%
Carbohydrates: 6 grams
Fiber: 2 grams, 8%
Sugar: 0 grams
Protein: 10 grams

When I took a "faux turkey patty" out of the box, my first reaction was that it seemed so small. Nevertheless, I followed the directions for cooking on the stove-top. But after a few minutes, when the patty developed a few grill-marks, I couldn't wait any longer and finished it off in the microwave. With the patty done, I set it atop a slice of Arnold Select Multigrain Sandwich Thins, loaded with lettuce, tomato and cucumbers ... but first I took a few bites of the patty by itself to see what it would taste like.

It has a thick and hearty texture and the taste is slightly salty and seasoned - although there was something "else" - some other taste in the background that let you know this ain't meat ... well, the fact that this is not a "juicy" burger is also a dead giveaway. Nevertheless, I enjoyed my burger immensely. I spread some Napa Valley Orange and Ginger Honey Mustard on the bread and we all know that makes almost everything taste GOOD!

Each 70 gram Quorn Turk'y Burger patty provides 90 calories, 4 grams of total fat, 0.5 grams of which is saturated (6% and 3% of the daily value), 2 grams of fiber and 10 grams of protein. The main ingredient in Quorn Turk'y Burger is "mycoprotein" and this product is soy-free as well as meat-free.

A 71 gram Amy's Organic California Veggie Burger provides 140 calories, and Morningstar Farms Grillers California Turk'y Burger provides 90 calories, but it's 67 grams - so the nutrition facts of Quorn Turk'y Burgers stand out. A box with 4 retails for close to $5.00 - a little pricey but worth it.

Overall, I would buy this to keep it around - there's always veggie burgers in my freezer because they can make a quick lunch or dinner.
