These plant-based burgers pack a protein punch!

Looking for vegan burgers to grill up this Memorial Day weekend? Lucky for you, gone are the days of the cardboard-tasting veggie burger! These bad boys pack protein, texture, nutrients, and taste into each drool-worthy patty. So fire up that grill and grab the condiments. Then hold onto your sustainable vegan hats, because the party doesn’t start ‘til these burgers walk in!

Impossible Burger

Available in pre-made patties or 12oz packs, Impossible burgers go just right with all those yummy summer salads! Weighing in at 19g of protein per serving, this is one hearty plant-based meat. So, go ahead and load it up with all the fixings! We’re talking BBQ sauce, stone ground mustard, vegan mayo, and fried onions. And hey, sriracha, anyone?

Beyond Burger

The darling of the BBQ is more than just a pretty patty. With 21g of protein per serving, this vegan burger is also gluten-free, soy-free, non-GMO, and kosher. We’re keeping it simple by serving this as a double cheeseburger with homemade fries. Beyond burgers also pair nicely with a refreshing summer drink. Try a nutrient-rich kombucha or an NA craft beer.

Trader Joe’s Protein Patties

It’s definitely not a BBQ without a trip to TJ’s! And while you’re there, throw some Trader Joe’s Protein Patties into the cart. At 18g of protein per serving, these will satisfy even your non-vegan friends and answer that nagging “Where do you get your protein?” question once and for all. Vegan burgers, that’s where!
