Sol Cuisine sent us some products to try out this summer, and so we happily and hungrily did. We had previously tried Sol’s Original Burgers at Cedar Row Farm Sanctuary‘s open house, and enjoyed them, so we were excited to try out a few more of their products.
Sol Cuisine offers vegan, non-GMO soy products including healthy tofus; veggie burgers; veggie dogs; and whole meat-textured food options.
They use a unique process to create vegan options that mimic meat texture. The process uses heat and pressure to melt vegetable proteins. The melted proteins are then cooled slowly to create layers of fibrous texture.
Bbq season is here, so we grilled up Sol Cuisine Sweet Curry Vegetable Burgers. These burgers have a bright yellow colour, due to the curry, and they were pretty curry-licious. If you enjoy the flavour of curry, you will dig these burgers.
The Sweet Curry Vegetable Burgers on the grill were a little dry, so we tried baking the Spicy Black Bean Burgers in the oven, and they were perfect. The texture was spot on, they had a nice spice, and they were juicy.
We wrapped them in lettuce instead of using burger buns, something I’ve been doing a lot lately and loving it much more than bread.
I recommend cooking the burgers in the oven rather than on the grill, but if you do want to try barbecuing them, cook them on low heat.
We also tried Sol Cuisine Tangy Korean Bbq Meatless Chicken. The meatless strips were very similar to the chicken I remember eating. They were flavourful, light on the stomach, and quick and simple to prepare; ready in only 6 minutes. Definitely a new favourite!!
If you are looking for tasty, healthier, and cruelty free options to add to your diet, give Sol a try. We really love all of the Sol products we’ve tried thus far, and look forward to trying more in the future!
