When I saw Boca Bruschetta Tomato Basil Parmesan Veggie Patties in the grocery store, I knew I had to buy them. True, a 4-serving box cost me $5.49 (at the overpriced store near me), but I was willing to pony up the cash to try what could be a wonderful meal staple.
I popped one of these babies into the microwave as soon as I got home (literally). I nuked it for about 90 seconds although I knew cooking it in a pan would make it crispier and more delicious. But I was just so eager to try it that I didn't want to wait even that long. I took my steaming Boca burger out, put it on a plate, and prepared for pure deliciousness.
And I was not disappointed. The texture was chewy and delicious, and the taste was superb as well. The basil flavor came through, though not overwhelmingly so, and the tomato flavor was spot-on. The parmesan was a nice touch too, and I even got a gooey piece of cheese in one of my bites!

The nutritional stats are so good that you could even double-decker your burger for fewer calories and less fat than a regular-sized beef burger patty. I'll definitely be buying these again - even at that high price. Try these for a nice twist on the traditional Boca Burger.
