Boca Burger, Original Vegetable, Individually Wrapped, 3.5-Ounce, 48-Count Burgers
Boca Burgers in Large Quantities Work for me!!
by Alice Cannon
I keep them in the freezer, and never have to worry about having them on hand for a healthy lo cal meal.
nutritious; low cal; low fat; can't be beat
No other soy burger comes close, imho, to Boca. Sure, some taste a little better but invariably they contain substantially more fat. And no others have the combination of high protein, fiber, low fat and good taste in only 100 calories. The 3.5 oz sizes I've only found in big box stores (Sam's seems to carry them more regularly), 16 to a box for about 60 cents each (just under ten dollars). The Amazon price for a box of 48 isn't posted today (2/18/12) so can't compare price-wise. They are a staple in my daily diet. Highly recommended.
A vegetarian/vegan staple
When I was in high school I worked at grocery store in the frozen food department. This was right around the time I first became a vegetarian. When I saw a huge box of boca burgers in the deep freezer similar to this, I asked my boss what they were for. He said he didn't know but I should throw them out. I then found out these were samples to cook in the aisle, but he was not interested. So, rather than toss them I just bought some bread and would have one every day. Lasted months! That was my first boca experience, and I keep 'em around now ever since. They are so good! Microwave cooking tip: The kind that have two in a bag: open the bag and put an ounce of water in the bag from your tap. Microwave for 2 1/2 minutes. They'll come out super juicy and not hard like hockey pucks. On the stove, boil a few ounces of water in a half-covered pot, and put the bocas in there (I like to add a bullion cube too.) When all but a tablespoon of water or so has evaporated, place on bread and pour the reduced liquid on top and add ketchup. Yum!
