I’m not sure what makes these Asian, as opposed to just a nicely flavored veggie burger.  I guess they had to pick a name because the box is too small to write “Just a nicely flavored veggie vegan burger.”  Maybe I should follow that kind of thinking and change the name of this blog to “Asian.”

The flavor is a little sweet and a very little bit spicy. The burger firms up nicely in the microwave, not falling apart like others.  A pet peeve I have with most veggie burgers is they’re generally on the thin side and are overwhelmed somewhat by a bun.  Putting two burgers on a bun produces a better ratio.  But I wish they’d make a single burger a little thicker/heavier so we don’t have to double up.

Calories  130 per burger

Price  $3.69 per box of 4 veggie burgers (10 oz. total – 284g)

ALDI – Earth Grown Veggie Burger – Vegan – Food Review

The box says, ‘with 11 vegetables’.  How do they fit them all in a 4 inch diameter circle?

One good thing, you can actually see the little veggies in the circle.  Being that the  veggies are of a size that makes them visible, the burgers tend to fall apart if handled too much while cooking.  Like many veggie burgers, the flavor of these is on the bland side.  I saw the word chipotle through the glass freezer case, but somehow when I got home they had changed to just plain veggie burgers.  I’ll look twice the next time.

Along with the bland flavor, these tend to dry out while cooking in the microwave.  Both problems can be overcome with the use of condiments.  For my purposes I topped with a spoonful or two of pickle relish which added a little flavor pop and also some needed moisture.  Problems solved.

While comparable to other veggie burgers on the market in texture and taste, these are also labeled ‘certified vegan’.  What’s also nice is they’re in the ALDI freezer case, meaning you won’t have to go elsewhere looking for a vegan veggie burger.  Now the potential downside is, I don’t know if these are a special item which will soon disappear or whether they’ll be a regular item in the freezer case.
