Carbs & Rec: Moo Pies

If you don’t own a copy of The Best Veggie Burgers on the Planet, you are seriously missing out.

Exhibit A: this Bacon Cheeseburger from the Heartland.

“But where’s the (vegan) bacon and (nondairy) cheese?” you’re probably asking yourself. IT’S BUILT RIGHT INTO THE BURGER.


I just blew your mind, right.

So the base is TVP and vital wheat gluten, which I totally love. (Down with beans!) For flavoring, there’s a pretty eclectic mix of BBQ sauce, peanut butter, liquid smoke, bacon bits, nutritional yeast, maple syrup, and assorted spices.

I tasted the batter prior to baking, and peanut butter totally dominated my taste buds – so I was surprised to find that the finished product really does have a distinct bacon and cheese flavor.

The only thing that would be better is Smart Bacon and a Daiya cheese sauce, but at what cost? So much extra work! This bad boy manages to encapsulate both flavors in one handy lil’ moo pie. And since there aren’t any animal products to speak of, it’s a moo pie that even a cow can love.

In this case, my Horizon dairy cow, liberated from a life of suicide food servitude via a fortuitous bag of trade show swag.


The off-topic nature of this gif? Also a moo point.
