Have you tried Quorn? It is made with mycoprotein (from mushroom) and does not contain any soy (ingredient list in the link):

I think I journaled a while back that I had fallen in love with my new Cuisinart grill because I could make paninis. I use those high fiber low carb tortillas and fill them with whatever is around. My favorite is turkey breast with roasted red pepper and low fat swiss. Really yummy. My next project is to experiment with breakfast sandwiches made the same way -- putting in scrambled egg whites, turkey ham, and cheese...

Mdep -- thanks for the suggestion re Quorn...unforunately, I am allergic to mushrooms, so I think that option (and the portobellos) are out for me.

Hermiones,Sorry I did'nt suggest something good. Well I know it is not what you wish but it is best to make your own. I know they can be frozen so once you start making some make a huge batch. I found great recipes on google. Have fun!!

Thanks FrostyLady -- you tried. The combination of allergies, desire for low-fat and low-carb creates quite a challenge. I'm going to try some of the quinoa and black bean based recipes. I was kind of nervous about black bean because I had the black bean burger at Hoolihan's earlier this summer and it was just awful, and I generally like black beans! I'll experiment a bit and let you know how it works out.

don't let chain restaurant disaster hoolihan's spoil black bean burgers for you. i had an appleby's black bean patty that was heinous once too. your own will be delicious and if your don't like the first bacth you get to alter them as you like.

Amy's has organic and vegan veggie burgers. The best protein is the "all american" one. A little delicate but good. Without package here, I think 14g protein per pattie!

If you have access to Aldi, they also have a great Salmon Burger that is like the ones at Costco, $3.99 for a package of 4, 120 cal. and 14 g of protein. Quick and easy and are delicious! I was totally unaware of the issues with Boca and MorningStar products, I'm so glad I read this!

Hi, I eat Amy's Bisto burger all the time. Love them. I am gluten free and a vegan so these are the best and yummy too.

Good luck finding what you are looking for .

Apparently I was asleep at the switch, because I only just got the part where they told us that Boca Burgers and other processed soy products were made with a process using a petroleum derivative, hexane, and no one knows exactly whether the resulting products might carry along residue of this process, or what this might mean for long-term health.

So...after I finish the box of Boca Burgers now in my freezer, I'm looking for an organic, non-hexane, veggie burger that is high protein and low carb and tastes good.

And I'm talking about a packaged product -- I need something that doesn't involve prep, since the whole point of having the Boca Burgers in the house was for convenience meals.

Any suggestions for a product that meets these criteria?

WOW!!! I just bought 4 boxes of Boca Burgers. I guess I am not going to but these anymore. They are so good and quick in the morning, I have used the veggie burgers from Costco and they are good. Not as sturdy as Boca burgers. Maybe that is why Boca Burgers are so hard to find these days.

Sunshine brand _I think that's what they are called. I get them from Sprouts.
