This thing tastes like my lunch from grade school.  Which, is not necessarily a bad thing.  I never minded schoolhouse “soy burgers” (my incipient veganism?)  Helen’s Kitchen GardenSteaks, like schoolburgers, are utilitarian- nutritious and low fat, not too dry or juicy (messy), and basic in flavor for versatility.*

*I do realize some would most assuredly disagree with me on this somewhat favorable description of schoolhouse soyburgers.

What else can I say about these burgers?  Eat them with tartar sauce and perhaps some fries/chips, as well.  Douse it all with malt vinegar- like you’re at a tavern by the sea.  In fact, my accomplice in taste-testing said that the only way these frozen patties would be good, is to “batter ’em and fry ’em up.” And she’s probably right.  These burgers are more fishy tasting than burger tasting.

Helen’s offers other frozen foods, but my grocer only carries these.  Most of their products contain cheese, so be aware.

Helen’s Kitchen GardenSteaks get “2 Goatz ” for being basic fare that requires additional preparation to make it edible and yet, strangely, perfect for a vegan version of fish.

Gratitude and thanks to Helen’s Kitchen for graciously sending me some of their products to review

    I haven’t had any luck with Helen’s Kitchen. I, along with my love, have simply not enjoyed anything from the company that we have tried. I think that the food tasted bland, and that it did not have a good texture, unlike other available options.
