Using Boca burger crumbles as a replacement for ground beef is not only healthier for you but considerably cuts down on cooking time. Not to mention that Boca burger tastes great too. For those who are not familiar with Boca burger, Boca burger is a vegetarian meat replacement, or imitation. I prefer the burger crumbles which is a replacement for ground beef or ground turkey. The Boca crumbles are made out of soy protein. One box comes with three individual packets that contain Boca burger. Each packet is equivalent to one half pound of ground beef.
I use Boca burger in every recipe that calls for ground beef. It saves me so much time and I know that it is healthier for me. There are a few recipes that are quick and easy that I make all the time with Boca burger.
The easiest recipe I make with Boca burger is tacos. I take out one packet of Boca crumbles (equivalent to one half pound of ground beef) and heat the Boca on the stove. I sprinkle Taco seasoning over the Boca to give it flavor. The Boca does not take long to heat up, only about five minutes, so I usually don’t pull the Boca out of the freezer until the oven is heated up and ready for the taco shells. While the taco shells cook in the oven for 5-6 minutes, I heat my Boca up over the stove. After the Boca is heated up and the shells are ready, just top your tacos with your favorite toppings and dinner is ready.
My second favorite recipe I make with Boca burger is called Tater Tot Casserole. I take out two packets of Boca burger which is equivalent to one pound of ground beef. In a large mixing bowl I mix the Boca burger and one can of cream of mushroom soup. I cut up a half of an onion and mix that in with the Boca and soup. Once mixed together, I pour the contents into a baking dish and top with tater tots. One top of the tater tots I grate cheddar cheese. The casserole is then ready to cook for 30 minutes at 375 degrees in the oven. This recipe is very quick and very good.
The possibilities with Boca burger are endless. Unlike ground beef, Boca burger does not have to thaw; you just pull it out of the freezer and immediately start heating it up on the stove. I always keep at least one box of Boca burger in my freezer.
