Dominex Veggie Fries

Dominex Veggie Fries are described as breaded Italian style eggplant fries ... with 65% less sodium than the leading brand of French Fries. There's a lot of underlying themes going on with this product - well, more like the things I made up in my head - but still, I sense an Italian vs. French fries battle and a eggplant vs. potato fries match-up.

If this were an Italian vs French war, then the French would have won. But don't get me wrong, it wouldn't have been a massacre, as the Dominex eggplant fries aren't too bad. They are thick, like crinkle cut fries, and when eaten hot (not burn your tongue hot of course), then the contrast between the crispy outside and softer "mushy eggplant" interior was pleasant. But as the fries cooled, the softer texture took over and it just wasn't appealing anymore. I like Dominex Eggplant Burgers, but the fries I'm really not a fan of unfortunately. Potatoes win!

Dominex Eggplant Burger Review

Dominex Eggplant BurgerWhen I first saw Dominex Eggplant Burgers in the grocery store, I was skeptical. Sure, I like eggplant, but would this product survive the test of being compared to real burgers and my favorite veggie variety, Boca Burgers? Well, being the adventurous eater that I am, I decided that I would try it.

Dominex says, "We've taken eggplant in an entirely new direction: the American Original Eggplant Burger. We combine fresh eggplant with natural seasonings and ingredients to create a healthy alternative to both conventional and meatless burgers. Our burgers are made from only fresh eggplant and are cooked and packaged just days after being harvested - we never use stored, frozen vegetables. This guarantees you fresh, great taste." That's a pretty strong endorsement, but is it just for show? At $2.99 for a 4-pack, this was considerably less expensive than other veggie burgers, so I decided to give it a try.

I cooked a burger up in the microwave and examined it. My first thought was that it was a little greasy - is eggplant normally greasy? I don't think so, but maybe it;s because of the extra virgin olive oil that I spotted in the ingredients list. I took a bite, and found that the taste of the burger was really pleasant. I loved the spices that were added, and I couldn't even really taste the eggplant. The texture was thick and somewhat chewy, though not too much - real burgers are a bit chewy, after all. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised and this made for a great lunch.
