hey gang, i hope you enjoyed the weekend.

lots of fun things happening around here at food and foto!  for starters, i gained my 600th {+} follower last week!  i am always so humbled and grateful when anyone subscribes to the blog.  please allow me to take this moment to thank those of you who take time to read and follow and comment and engage… i just really appreciate it!  this blog wouldn’t be the same if it weren’t for you!

also, i received an email from a lovely rep at Hilary’s Eat Well a few weeks ago, asking if i would be interested in trying and giving feedback on some of their products.  i was familiar with hilary’s eat well, but had never actually had the pleasure of eating any of their products… so i was super excited for the opportunity to not only try them, but to write about it on my blog!  my first official review 😀

once i read up on the company, i was even more excited for the experience.

for starters, they are LOCAL… and i love to support local food companies! secondly, hilary {the owner} developed the original recipe herself while simultaneously opening her restaurant, “the local burger”, in lawrence, kansas.  4 years later, hilary’s eat well was introduced to the market. most recently, hilary’s has developed the hemp green burger and the veggie bites. furthermore, as a small business owner myself, i’m always extra proud to support women-owned companies!

i am here today to tell you about the veggie burger – and allow me to begin by saying IT IS DELICIOUS!

quinoa, millet, coconut oil, and a few other simple ingredients make this veggie patty flavourful and fun.  i love the texture!

and they are so easy to prepare!  i just followed the instructions for baking them in the oven…

then chopped some fresh veggies to put on my ‘burger’ along with a little stone-ground mustard and a simple dinner roll…

piled it all up perfectly…

salivated for a few seconds…

took another foto from another angle {such a foodographer}…

then got about 3/4 of the way through {because it is AMAZING and i devoured it!} before realizing i forgot to add some cheese!  which is fine, because hilary’s comes in a 2-pack, so i’ll just have to make another one – next time, with cheese.

go check these veggie burgers out for yourself.  i am forever a fan.  they are simple, pure, and delicious.  what more can you ask for in a quality product?!  oh… did i mention it’s gluten, dairy, egg, and gmo-free?!  righteous.

THANKS, HILARY’S EAT WELL! it’s been a pleasure eating with you 🙂
