Have you tried anything from the Good Life range? I was under the impression that they were a new brand but they’ve actually been making vegetarian meals for over 25 years. I’ve clearly been missing out. Phil and I have been fans of the brand for the last year or so and regularly keep a few boxes of their burgers to keep in the freezer. So far I’ve tried their Spicy Veg Bean Burgers, Sunblush Tomato Grills and the ones which I’ll be talking about today, the Nut Burgers. The Nut Burgers come in a pack of 4 and are usually £2.29 but they’re currently on offer in Waitrose for £1.70 (I’ll be stocking up tonight).
These burgers are fab and really nutty. They’re stuffed with parsnips, carrots and lots of cashew nuts. The nuts give them a good crunch and they’re full of flavour. It’s nearly lunch time as I’m typing this and I’m very tempted to pop one in the oven. These Nut Burgers are free from dairy and egg making them suitable for vegans (full list of ingredients at the bottom of this post).
If I’m having a busy work day and don’t fancy doing much cooking I’ll grab some fresh bread, pop the burgers in the oven and then add salad, olives, tomatoes and anything tasty we have to hand. They may not be homemade burgers but they’re just as good, if not better. I’ve never actually made nut burgers at home, I’ll have to give them a try some time. For now though, I’m more than happy having g a few boxes of Good Life burgers stashed away in the freezer.
I buy mine from Waitrose in Sheffield but they’re also stocked at Ocado, Goodness Direct and Booths. I’d love to see them rolled out
