Almost Too Purdy To Eat

Almost! Love heirloom tomato time! Just look at how scrum-dilly-umptious this looks. Mikey is scared of them. He calls them freaky franken-tomatoes and wants nothing to do with them. That hasn’t stopped me from sneaking a few home though.

I used this particularly juicy sucker to top my absolute fave veggie burger, Sunshine Burgers. Check out the list of ingredients in their BBQ patty:

Organic cooked brown rice, organic ground raw sunflower seeds, organic cooked pinto beans, organic rice syrup, organic onion, organic paprika, organic garlic, sea salt, organic black pepper, natural smoke flavor.

Now compare that to Boca Burger (sorry Boca!):

WATER, SOY PROTEIN CONCENTRATE, WHEAT GLUTEN, CONTAINS LESS THAN 2% OF METHYLCELLULOSE, SALT, CARAMEL COLOR, DRIED ONIONS, YEAST EXTRACT, SESAME OIL, HYDROLYZED WHEAT PROTEIN, NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR (NON-MEAT), DISODIUM GUANYLATE, DISODIUM INOSINATE. CONTAINS: SOY, WHEAT, SESAME

And how about Morningstar (sorry MStar!):

HYDRATED WHEAT GLUTEN (WATER, WHEAT GLUTEN), HYDRATED SOY FLOUR (WATER, SOY FLOUR), MUSHROOMS (MUSHROOMS, WATER, SALT), WATER CHESTNUTS (WATER CHESTNUTS, WATER, CITRIC ACID), ONION, CARROTS, COOKED BROWN RICE (WATER, BROWN RICE), WHOLE GRAIN OATS, CORN OIL, EGG WHITES, CALCIUM CASEINATE (FROM MILK), GREEN PEPPERS, SOY SAUCE (WATER, SOYBEANS, SALT, WHEAT), RED BELL PEPPERS, CONTAINS TWO PERCENT OR LESS OF SOY PROTEIN CONCENTRATE, WATER, ONION POWDER, CORNSTARCH, BLACK OLIVES (RIPE OLIVES, WATER, SALT, FERROUS GLUCONATE [COLOR]), SUGAR, SOY PROTEIN ISOLATE, HYDROLYZED CORN PROTEIN, SALT, SPICES, HYDROLYZED WHEAT PROTEIN, HYDROLYZED SOY PROTEIN, YEAST EXTRACT, GARLIC POWDER, THIAMIN HYDROCHLORIDE, JALAPENO PEPPER, NATURAL FLAVOR, DEXTROSE, CARAMEL COLOR, CELERY EXTRACT.

Is there even a choice after that?! Not for me.

My one gripe, they only come packaged in threes. Sunshine burger people, can you get on packages of four please? K, thanks.
