Bread Protein Balls Recipe

I love a good bread. It's absolutely one of my favorite things. Bread can deliver amazing flavor when done correctly. It can also provide exciting texture and plenty of protein.

The more you knead bread, the more gluten you create. Those already familiar with seitan know that wheat gluten is total protein.

When you add nutritional yeast, flax or other nuts/seeds,  now you have a bread that is also a complete protein.

In the interest of doing things a little differently, I decided to do little bread balls because I figured they would offer a unique textural experience to other forms of bread. I also figured they'd make a nice little snack size bite. They're easier to shape than a flat bread, can bake in the oven, and take much less time to cook than rolls or loaves. They're great for dipping into hummus too.

As you can see, they're very cute as well.

Boca Turk'y Veggie Burgers

I often check the frozen vegetarian section of shoprite for boca vegan burgers. They usually only have the chick'n patties or the very large box of vegan burgers.

I wind up buying the chick'n patties because I don't want a box of ten. The chick'n patties are really good, but occasionally I want that more traditional veggie patty feel.

Last time I checked, I found the turk'y burgers four pack. I was pleased because they were labelled as vegan.

I had no lofty expectations. I've always been satisfied with boca products and assumed they'd be at least satisfactory..

They were actually very good. Better than I expected. Good taste and texture. A very pleasing sandwich.

Should they stick around, I'd definitely purchase them again. They're low cal and high protein. The taste is good. The texture is moist, but not mushy.

Very good vegan patty.
