Meatless burgers use soy products instead of meat or fish. They can be found in many restaurants in southern states and California. It is usually a mixture of flower seeds and veggies with onions, tomatoes, mustard and lettuce on a whole bun. If you like cheese you may add some. In some restaurants meatless burgers contain red pepper and Cajun spicies. So if you belong to vegetarians you can make sure that the choice is really rich.
The best way of cooking meatless burgers is to use a grill basket. It must be sprayed with oil. Using a grill basket is easy and convenient, since you turn the basket, not the burgers.
Meatless burgers don't include eggs, milk and other animal-derived products. For this reason they are very popular with animal activists, who don't want to support the animal products corporation. They prefer flesh-and-blood free meal to show their strong opposition against such companies.
Meatless burgers are also popular among those who stick to diet. Each such burger is only 200 calories, total fat is 14 g, protein is 12 g.
Soy protein provides all kinds of health benefits. Soy considered to be an important source of protein, though with a low amount of fat. According to the results of a recent research soy protein can reduce the risk of heart disease, by means of lowering cholesterol. By giving preference to soy burgers you think about your health.
The benefits of meatless burgers are evident, still there are some disadvantages. Though many people claim they taste good, in fact the taste is not so pleasant. The discs of brown soy protein have a scent that no garnishes can mask. Besides you need a lot of sauce while cooking to prevent them from falling apart.
Another point is farming and trade industry. Mc Donald's have always been the largest purchaser of farmed beef in the world. With the appearance of meatless burgers the amount of purchases sank. As more and more fast food restaurants offer soy food and more people consume it, farmed beef industry leaders are afraid they can lose their money.
Speaking about the health benefits of soy products we cannot underestimate the fact that not all the elements necessary for human organism can be found there. It is true, of course, that they are an important source of protein, but they don't contain vitamins A and C, which are vital for our immune system, skin, hair and nails. So depriving ourselves of meat products we are doing harm to our health, though we may not always be aware of it. This is especially dangerous for children, since the total absence of meat products in their ration may affect seriously and slow down their growth and development. Even if adults are strict vegetarians, meat must prevail in children's meals, especially at an early age.
Alongside with the fast food restaurants, which offer vegetarian food there is a great number of cafes suitable for those, who cannot imagine their life without another beef burger. Fine Burgers and Drinks is a company for adults and children. It is a family restaurant. Here you can enjoy tacos, burgers, grilled chicken and various salads. The menu for kids includes grilled cheese sandwich, chicken fingers, a hot dog and a kid-size burger.
