Upgrade Your Veggie Burger! Plus Giveaway Contest

Dressed up? Dressed down? How do you like your veggie burger?

My newest food obsession has been Hilary’s Veggie Burgers. I’ve been a pescatarian now for 10 years and vegetarian for 5 years prior to that and let me tell you, it’s not been easy to find a tasty veggie burger that checks these 2 boxes:

Soy-free: So many veggie burgers out their have soy protein isolates in their ingredient list. No thanks! They are the most processed form of soy that should be avoided. I’m all for eating minimally processed soy like edamame, tempeh and even a bit of tofu, but I like to steer clear of isolates.

Gluten-free: Again, many other veggie burgers out there use gluten as a binder for their products and to me, is completely unnecessary. Gluten is an inflammatory agent found in wheat, rye and barley and has harmful effects when eaten in large amounts (like most Americans do).

Hilary’s veggie burgers also happen to be vegan, which is great, but not a necessity in my nutritional philosophy.

My Strong, Safe & Sexy meal plan featured on ABC’s new weight-loss reality show, My Diet is Better Than Yours, is a pescatarian and gluten-free diet that is mainly plant-based with small amounts of fish and seafood included.

Therefore, when in a rush and you don’t have time to make your own veggie burgers, like these Quinoa Chickpea burgers, having Hilary’s in the freezer is the best solution for an upgraded burger night.

World’s Best Veggie Burger
Hemp & Greens (my favorite)
Black Rice
Adzuki Bean
Root Veggie

My favorite way to make a Hilary’s veggie burger is the following:

  1. Defrost a veggie patty in the microwave for 30 seconds.
  2. Add a teaspoon of coconut oil to a pan over medium-high heat.
  3. Cook your veggie burger until each side starts to crisp and place it on some butter lettuce leaves.
  4. In the same pan, crack an egg and cook to your liking (mine is over easy).
  5. Put a slice of cheese on your burger and top with an egg.
  6. Add some type of pickled vegetable to your plate for a probiotic punch: pickles, kimchi (featured below) or some good ol’ fashioned kraut (my fave brand: Farmhouse Culture).
  7. Go bunless by using the butter lettuce or add a gluten-free bun to the mix (i use just half).

Delicious, nutritionist approved and Strong, Safe & Sexy too!

    I’ve never had the Hilary’s veggie burgers, I’ve only had the morning star, and those are delicious, so I can only imagine how yummy these are!

  • Therisha Myers says:

    These sound awesome! I have been a pescatarian since I was 9, and I am always on the search for a good veggie burger. Since I was just diagnosed with a soy allergy on top of my celiac, these would be awesome! Thank you for introducing me to a new line to try!

  • Kara W says:

    Hi Jenn – I love watching your show on ABC. You and Taj are my favorite team! I have started incorporating some of your philosophies into my diet and so far it’s going great. For the past week and a half I have cut out meat (I watched your YouTube video detailing your personal experience, ew!) and most gluten. I also made your egg muffins for my family to snack on.

    I saw you recommended Hillary’s veggie burgers, so I searched their website to find a local store that carries them. After, I drove to Hannaford’s a city over from me and to my dismay, they were not carried there! I was so bummed. I tried a different brand, but I would love to try these (maybe through the free coupons!) once I can make it over to a WholeFoods!

    • Maggie says:

      Hi Kara! We’re so sorry you didn’t find us at your local Hannaford. Our team would love to connect, as we should be on the shelves there. If you wanted more info, feel free to email us at info@hilaryseatwell.com so we can see how we can help! Thanks so much!

      Warmly,

    Lots of food allergies, celiac, and Type 1 diabetes calls for very strict, healthy eating and these would do just the trick!
