I have been a vegetarian for many years. While I don't really miss meat itself, there are some meat-inspired dishes that I still appreciate, hamburgers are at the top of the list. Forever on the prowl for the next best veggie burger, we've tried just about everything out there. Some are too rubbery, while others can be likened to cardboard. We've made up recipes on our own, using everything from beans to brown rice. So when I was contacted to review Harmony Valley Vegetarian mixes, I jumped at the chance.
Harmony Valley, which is based in Fort Collins, CO, was launched in 2009. The goal of the company is to provide healthy vegetarian/vegan food alternatives. The company is not just health conscious, but environmentally conscious as well.
Harmony Valley Vegetarian mixes come in Hamburger and Sausage style and are super easy to make. Just add water, refrigerate for 15 minutes, and you're good to go! These vegetarian mixes can be used as a supplement to any meal that would normally call for ground beef.
We decided to make a Cranberry Burger with Tuscan Cinnamon cheese - weird combination I know, but the result was heavenly! The texture and flavor is spot on.
Harmony Valley will now be a staple at my house, it's so versatile that the recipe possibilities are truly endless. Spaghetti and Meatballs, Tacos, Stuffed Pasta Shells, Burritos....I could go on and on.
Even if you're not a vegetarian you'll be sure to love Harmony Valley Vegetarian Mixes - give it a try!
