11 “Beefy” Vegan Burger Brands to Grill up This Fourth of July
“Beefy” store-bought vegan burgers are going mainstream! Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods drove these plant burgers into the mass market, causing a major shift in how meatless patties were received by the general public. Many big-name companies followed with 100% vegan options of their own added to old-school lineups. So whether you’re vegan, veg-curious, or just here for the great food, here are 11 burgers to side up with your tots and fries.
Beyond Meat recently released the latest version of their iconic Beyond Burger. The new burgers come available in individually portioned patties or as Beyond Beef, a 1-lb package perfect for forming your own. Powered by pea protein and rice, the latest release is gluten-free, soy-free, non-GMO, and loaded with 20g protein.
Impossible Foods, a California-based company, ships directly to your door. With 19g protein per serving and 0mg cholesterol, Impossible offers pre-portioned soy-based patties or both 12oz and family-size bulk packs perfect for cooking up and adding to pizza or tacos.
The sweetheart of budget-friendly groceries, Trader Joe’s recently launched a pea protein-based burger that’s a great option if you’ve got allergies or you’re just trying to avoid soy. These Protein Patties, at 18g protein per serving, ring up at less than some of the more costly vegan burger options currently on the market.
Kroger debuted Simple Truth Emerge Plant-Based Grind and Simple Truth Emerge Plant-Based Patties to their existing lineup of vegan products, adding a pea-based plant meat perfect for sloppy joes, tacos, or double-decker burgers with the works. At a whopping 20g protein per serving, this plant-based option is non-GMO, soy-free, and gluten-free.
Pure Farmland’s gluten-free, soy-based burgers come in at 16g protein per serving and are available in Simply Seasoned Plant-Based Burger Patties or Plant-Based Burger Patties with Dairy Free Cheddar Alternative. Can’t decide? Go for both!
At 25g protein per serving, Sweet Earth’s Awesome Burger is literally awesome! Enjoy this non-GMO patty on a bun with BBQ sauce and caramelized fried onions, or go for the Awesome Grounds to form your own or add to spaghetti.

What’s gluten-free, non-GMO, soy-based, and packed with 19g protein per serving? Before the Butcher’s UNCUT Plant-Based Burger, of course! The California-based brand also offers “chicken” burgers and “turkey” burgers.
Field Roast’s mushroom-powered patty clocks in at 21g protein and packs a nutritional punch with carrots, onions, garlic, and more. This burger brings 0mg cholesterol and 100% great taste to the vegan table. We love ours loaded with ketchup!
