I like to make my own black bean burgers. That way I control what goes in them. There are very yummy.

If she will eat seafood,you might also try making
salmon patties(eat on a bun like a burger).Just don't
buy the premade ones-as most of them aren't too good.

My fav is Morning Star Garden Veggie, but the Black Bean one is pretty good as well. I have also had & liked Amy's California Style, but they are not my first choice, but will due in a pinch.

I didn't really favor The Boca ones or the Amy's Texas ones .

I also like the Quorn Chicken as as others have stated it is all about the toppings.

Mine always include a LARGE slab of red onion & tomato, as well as maybe pickles or some lettuce etc. The Onion is not an option. lol

I like them all-though some are much better.I don't
remember if it is Morningstar Farms or Boca burger,
but there is a grilled "quarter pounder version that
I like a lot.It IS all about the toppings-if she likes cheeseburgers-get some really good cheese to melt over
it.

My favorite processed foods burger is the Morningstar Farms Spicy Black Bean burger. But, I have found quite a few recipes online for veggie burgers that I really love and enjoy customizing to my own taste - so in your daughter's case that would be eliminating mushrooms.
I also like the Quorn products, including the chicken patty.

I like the Boca burger best -- although I'm greatly into toppings so it's mostly about the ketchup with me. Heh.

I do know many like Morning Star's burgers and Amy's Organics does have one -- which is a line I like even if I haven't had the burgers.

There are also several black bean burgers among the various brands. Perhaps moving away from the fake hamburger taste will work.

But my favorite way to deal with burger cravings is the Quorn "chicken" patties. I dress them up just like a hamburger and find them quite tasty.

Also, most fish cases have salmon or tuna burgers already prepared.

My daughter used to enjoy a weekly hamburger -- until she saw Food Inc and became Pescatarian. We just started trying out some of the veggie burgers on the market. She doesn't really care for the Garden Burger brand (tried the original and the Sun Dried Tomato Basil). Tried the Boca Burger this weekend and she thought it was "okay" but I could tell she wasn't thrilled. She doesn't like mushrooms so if it has mushrooms as one of the main ingredients she won't try it. Wondering if there are any that you all can recommend.
