The Bottom Line: Eating a plant-based burger this good makes meat feel totally unnecessary.
DANE RIVERA: There are some solid reasons to eat plant-based burgers over their traditional meat counterparts. For one, you might not eat meat but don’t want to miss out on the delicious experience of savoring a good burger. Two, while plant-based “meats” (yes, we realize that’s a misnomer in itself) aren’t impeccable for the environment, they’re significantly better than livestock. And while the new generation of veggie burgers aren’t crazy good for you (their sodium levels can often exceed real meat), they’re… veggie-based. Therefore they can offer a lifelong meat-eater a gateway to more vegetable-driven eating decisions.
Or you maybe you’ve simply had your fill of bacon burgers and chicken sandwiches and feel eager to try something new. Travel your tastebuds and whatnot. Whatever the case may be, if you’re in the (rapidly expanding) market for a plant-based fast-food burger, we’re here to help. We’ve gone on the hunt for the best of what’s out there and we’ve ranked them based on taste. Or, we should clarify, “taste for those who also enjoy meat.” If you’re not a meat-eater at all, your palate might not crave umami the same way the carnivores among us do.
