Recently someone asked on social media what were the best vegan burgers to buy from the supermarket as we’re coming into peak BBQ season. I didn’t have to think very hard to come up with a list of patties that a) work well on a grill and b) are a step above the insipid bean burgers and falafel restaurants and pub chains seem to presume those who avoid meat love. These are listed in no particular order
Amy’s Kitchen, Available Tesco and other supermarkets
Amy’s Kitchen Veggie Burgers were some of the first we tried after becoming vegan and we were really impressed with how filling and meaty they are. Although not the cheapest on the market, they’re certainly a winner for us. They BBQ well and were a great addition to our feast when we had friends round.
Fry’s, Selected health food outlets and online
These plant-based burgers are perfect for satisfying any meaty cravings. With beefy flavour Fry’s vegan burgers are a barbecue essential in our house.
No Bull Burger, Iceland
These realistic meaty burgers work well on the BBQ but they can be a little sticky on the grill. They have been a big hit with vegetarians and vegans. Priced at £2 for 2 patties, you can read our review here.
Sgaia’s Vegan Meats, Available online and at selected vegan stores
You can’t fail but be impressed by Sgaia’s meat substitutes. These burgers were delicious and we would highly recommend giving them a try. You should also look out for their Festive alternatives at Christmas time, too.
Linda McCartney Quarter Pounder, Available in supermarkets
It seems some people either love or hate how realistically meaty the Linda McCartney 1/4 burgers are. We personally love them, especially at their price point. A family favourite.
