Product: Hilary’s Eat Well World’s Best Veggie Burger – $3.99+
When you have a product that is actually called the “World’s Best Veggie Burger”…then, by God, you better have the best damn veggie burger in the world.
Prior to having to go gluten-free…I went vegetarian, so I have had pretty much every veggie burger out there. By having to go gluten-free has only helped me to step beyond the very chemical-laden Morningstar veggie burgers and discovered healthier and much tastier options. Made with…REAL ingredients. Loving that.
After reading crazy-good and amazing reviews on the veggie burgers that are done by Hilary’s Eat Well…I knew…absolutely knew I had to try them out. And, on a recent journey over to my local Whole Foods store, my roommate told me to go grab one of the Hillary’s Eat Well veggie burgers from the freezer section. They had quite a few varieties…but I thought it best to start with the original. The burger that started it all.
Hilary’s Eat Well World’s Best Veggie Burger.
Quite a reputation to live up to, yes? Yeah…
A little history on this burger. Hilary created this recipe back in 2005 for her restaurant, Local Burger, wanting to have it be free of all the common food allergies and artificial ingredients…yet still be packed with great flavor. It was a hit at the restaurant…and now…it’s available to the general public in your natural food stores.
Ready to dive into a delicious new veggie burger and test out my brand new vegetable spiralizer to make sweet potato curly fries…the other night I got down and dirty cooking this frozen patty up. Nothing was easier. I preheated my electric skillet and put a little coconut oil in there. Once it was heated up, I threw both of the patties in, hearing it immediately begin to sizzle. With my spiraled sweet potato going down, I was able to focus on cooking these patties perfectly. These easily took about 3 minutes on each side. Not too long at all. And when I flipped the burgers, they didn’t fall apart at all. Most of the time, my gluten-free veggie burgers crumble. Not these. They held together amazingly well.
I plated the burgers on a gluten-free bun from my local gluten-free bakery, topped it with a bit of red leaf lettuce and some tomatoes. A squirt of Dijon mustard and…there it was. Dinner was served.
Even better…dinner was awesome. One bite and I knew exactly why these is called the World’s Best Veggie Burger. This burger is awesome. Packed with flavor. Not flat at all. And, as I mentioned above, they don’t fall apart as you bite into it, or hold it in the bun. It’s sturdy, yet soft and delicious. And I am now hooked, very eager to try out the other offerings from Hilary’s Eat Well.
The Hilary’s Eat Well World’s Best Veggie Burger is made up from water, organic millet, organic quinoa, expeller-pressed non-GMO coconut oil, organic sweet potato, organic spinach, organic onion, organic psylliam husk powder, organic arrowroot, organic apple cider vinegar, salt, organic garlic. Real ingredients! Real, recognizable ingredients. I LOVE this! It is corn-free, yeast-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free, and nut-free. It’s perfection!
As for nutrition, the serving is 1 of the 2 patties that are in the package. This one veggie burger will serve you up 210 calories and 9 grams of fat. It might seem high, but much of that comes from the coconut oil. The Hilary’s Eat Well World’s Best Veggie Burger also serves up 340 mg sodium. This burger is cholesterol free and sugar free. In addition, you will be getting 4 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein. Trust me…you will be FULL!
I love polishing off a meal and feeling full for hours afterwards. And that’s what happened here. I didn’t even have popcorn that night for a snack. It’s not every day a meal fills me up. Very impressed.
So far, the two products I have tried from Hilary’s Eat Well have blown me away. I am SO in love with the World’s Best Veggie Burger. And, as of right now, it really does live up to its name. Brilliant. And delicious. I’m hooked!

Too much fat in them for my blood. Wouldn’t they be just as tasty with the fat content cut in half?
I have seen FAR worse than what is in this. And with the natural ingredients, the fat is coming from natural oil instead of processed crap. There are some (Sunshine Burgers) that have a fat content of 14 grams or more. So I think 9 (single digits) is doing really well. Like I said, my diet has changed even since this and I currently just make my own veggie burger patties now.
