But we are aware of the large segment of the population that avoids eating meat. Luckily, the Twin Cities food scene offers a wide range of "alternaburgers"-- burgers made from all manner of things that don't have faces.
In this latest in an ongoing series, Common Roots Cafe's veggie burger goes head-to-head with French Meadow Bakery and Cafe's version. Which of these eco-conscious eateries comes out on top?

Winner: French Meadow Bakery and Cafe
These two burgers, while both touted as veggie burgers, offer a very different dining experience. There's definitely something to be said for Common Roots' offering, like a robust flavor and a unique recipe. But the presence of cheese alone could sway a lacto-vegetarian toward French Meadow. And for those whose vegetarianism hasn't lasted long enough to wash away the memory of meat, French Meadow more closely approximates the texture of beef.
Have you sampled these two veggie burgers? Do you know of one better? We'd love your opinions in the comments section below.
