Veggie Patch Mediterranean Spinach & Chickpeas Patties

I've been cutting back a bit on the meat eating in my diet lately, and checking out vegetarian alternatives. I really enjoyed the Veggie Patch Chik'n Cutlets, so I decided to also try their Spinach & Chickpeas Patties

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 patty (70 grams)
Calories: 120
Total Fat: 5 grams, 8%
Saturated Fat: 0.5 grams, 3%
Sodium: 350 mg, 15%
Carbohydrates: 16 grams
Fiber: 5 grams, 20%
Sugars: 2 grams
Protein: 5 grams

I followed the directions of 11-13 minutes in the toaster oven (but you can also do it in the microwave). The outer breadcrumb crust was crispy and the texture of the patty itself was slightly firm, not too soft and mushy. I ate the patty as is, and found there was a very slight spinach flavor, and I quite liked it. If you're a meat eater, this might take a little getting used to. The next time I had it, I added hot sauce - which I add to a lot of things, and it was even better. The chcikpeas didn't seem to be as much as pictured on the packaging, but it really wasn't missed.

I'm still not over the fact that Morningstar Farms Veggie Dogs Review have been discontinued (thankfully at least the Morningstar Farms Corn Dogs are back). In the search for a vegetarian replacement, I decided to try Veggie Patch Veggie Dogs.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 2 veggie dogs (70 grams)
Calories: 170
Total Fat: 11 grams, 17%
Saturated Fat: 1.5 gram, 8%
Sodium: 560 mg, 23%
Carbohydrates: 5 grams
Fiber: 1 gram, 4%
Sugars: 2 grams
Protein: 13 grams

The look reminds me of Quorn Meat Free Dogs, i.e. long and slender, but they taste much better (and have half as much sodium). With all the fixins' these dogs are okay, but they're not juicy or particularly tasty on their own (slightly cardboardy) - I made these on the stove-top, so maybe they taste better grilled (I certainly hope so). For a meat-eater, these aren't going to do it for you - in fact, Ball Park Fat Free Beef Franks has less calories (50 calories per 50 gram dog) and are mighty tasty. But if you don't eat meat, then these will do ... but only just.

Each serving of 2 Veggie Patch Veggie Dogs provides 170 calories, 11 grams of total fat, 1.5 grams of which is saturated fat (17% and 8% of the daily value), 560 mg of sodium (23% of the DV), 1 gram of fiber, 2 grams of sugars and 13 grams of protein.

Veggie Patch Chik'n Cutlets Review

Veggie Patch Chik'n Cutlets

Veggie Patch Meatless Chick'n Cutlets are a vegetarian alternative to breaded chicken patties. I received samples to review, and one evening I heated this up in the microwave and presented it to the kids cut up like chicken nuggets/ strips for as their after-school snack - and of course, I had it myself as well.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 cutlet (71 grams)
Calories: 140
Total Fat: 6 grams, 9%
Saturated Fat: 1 gram, 4%
Sodium: 380 mg, 16%
Carbohydrates: 15 grams
Fiber: 3 grams, 10%
Sugars: 1 gram
Protein: 10 grams

The kids often act as my taste testers and in this case - the resident chicken nugget expert (7 years old) LOVED this and couldn't get enough. And I have to say that I totally agree - Veggie Patch Chik'n Cutlets ROCKS hard! The patties are thin, and crunchy and there are no weird soy-ish flavors going on. The texture is not-exactly meat-like, but it's close enough that you won't miss real breaded "chicken" if you go with this.

Each cutlet provides 140 calories, 6 grams of total fat, 1 gram of which is saturated fat (9% and 4% of the daily value), 16% of the DV for sodium, 3 grams of fiber (10% of the DV), 1 gram of sugars and 10 grams of protein.
