About 9 years ago when I moved to Massachusetts, I rented a room from a lovely Irish woman who showed me around Boston and taught me a few things. One thing I remember about her is that she used to buy Boca burger patties and they always looked so good when she made them. Granted they are not very expensive at less than $4 a box, at that time I could only afford a ramen noodle diet and 4 bucks was a lot. I remember telling myself I would try them one day.
Fast forward to 2018 where I have a decent life were I can afford to live on more than ramen noodles, Boca burger patties have become a regular on my menu. I am far from a vegetarian but I try to eat 2 meatless meals a week some of which include Boca products.
Boca veggie patties are plant-based and made from soy protein and wheat gluten. With 13 grams of protein per serving and 90% less fat than a ground beef hamburger, they are a great choice for those who are trying to lower their fat consumption and lower their cholesterol intake. I especially love how they taste extremely good, you seriously will not miss meat when you have these.
So what is the best way to eat a Boca veggie burger? I say, in a delicious naan bread sandwich. Here is how I do it. I lightly toast some garlic naan bread, top it with lettuce and arugula mixed with a herb vinaigrette, then place the cooked Boca Original Turk’y Veggie Burger patties topped with a simple tomato, onion and cucumber salsa. To eat I fold the naan bread into a sandwich and boy is it a bite of heaven.
Other ways to eat a Boca Veggie Burger:
- In a traditional style burger: Make a delicious burger with a veggie patty, sriracha mayo, onions and tomato.
- In a tortilla wrap: Add to flour tortilla wrap with shredded lettuce, onion, tomato with spicy mayo.
- Make a vegan version of chicken parmesan with the Boca patty in place of the chicken.
