I was scanning the vegan and vegetarian section at a local supermarket because I was searching for a good lunch that I can bring at work. And this caught my eye. This variant got me curious so I bought it.
This is not new to me, like what I have mentioned, my vegetarian friend has introduced to me some plant-based food items and the veggie burger is one of them. And guys, this tastes a lot like burger meat! It is really incredible to me!
I have tried various flavors and what type of veggies are inside but the artichokes and tomatoes is really good.
It is interesting how it differs to the other veggies. I must say that this is lightest than the other ones I have tried. The others, in my opinion is much heavier, I feel it in my tummy, and almost easily I am full.
I really like that it isn’t even noticeable that it isn’t meat, though. It even has a good aroma =)
As you can see on the package, it says it is 100% vegan, palm oil free and non OGM.
It is a good source of protein and may contain traces of celery.

Kioene went out in the market in 1990 as a Bio-Ene brand with its frozen products based on vegetable protein.
