The budget grocer's plant-based burgers will be available to grill in July, but only for a limited time.

Aldi has come out with a slew of exciting new products this season—from bottled mimosas to ready-to-cook seafood—making summer that much more delicious. We recently discovered the grocer is releasing a new line of veggie burgers next month, and we are hoping to be first in line to try them (hint, hint Aldi)! And with flavors like Mushroom Risotto and Southwest Quinoa Crunch, we’re pretty sure you’ll want to try them too.

Aldi's collection includes five new veggie burger patties from their Earth Grown line of vegan and vegetarian products, and all will be available just for a limited time in their "Aldi Finds" section beginning July 17. The flavors are Buffalo Chickenless, BBQ Chickenless, Mushroom Risotto, Lentil Veggie, and Southwest Quinoa Crunch.

Fortunately, they look not only meatless, but actually pretty healthy. We got a look at the nutrition info, and the burgers range between 130-230 calories a serving. They are also low in saturated fat, making for a much heart-healthier cookout!

Can’t get enough of Aldi?

Ingredients-wise, the Mushroom Risotto, Lentil Veggie, and Southwest Quinoa Crunch are all made with whole grains, legumes, and veggies, while the chickenless patties are made with soy protein.

The burgers will be priced between $3.49-$3.79 for a box of four patties. We can’t wait to start grilling them up!

2 Healthy Aldi Finds Already Available

Specially Selected Everything Bagel Cold Smoked Salmon

Similar to Trader Joe's Everything But the Bagel Smoked Salmon that launched in 2019, this high-protein option is a catch served atop a cream cheese-schmeared bagel, layered into a Nordic snack platter, sliced and served as part of a salad or grain bowl or stacked on top avocado toast. Sold for $3.99 per 3-ounce pouch, this spiced-up smoked salmon launched June 2 so it should be rolling out in an Aldi near you now—if not already there.

Antoine Delaune Beaujolais Rosé

If you like high-quality vino at crazy-affordable prices, you can't do much better than stocking up at Aldi. (ICYMI, here are the best Aldi wines under $15, according to sommeliers.) New to the lineup: This just-released French rosé. If it's anything like other Aldi-sold rosés we've sipped from similar growing regions, this $7.99-per-750-milliliter-bottle option is destined to be crisp, citrusy, refreshing and ideal for pairing with seafood or a cheese board.

ALDI SHOPPERS UNITE! what are your fav products?

I know I am not the only one here who knows the glory of Aldi's amazing & inexpensive products! I am definitely on a budget and would rather hunt down goodies there than go spending more at Kroger, and I don't have a Trader Joe's near me so I always feel left out when people on Reddit flaunt those products!

Results will probably vary based on location, but what are your favorite healthy/low cal products to get at Aldi? Or what recipes do you whip up with Aldi ingredients? Or even what products do you notice are cheaper there than elsewhere? Let's spread the wealth.

I used to be wary of Aldi's produce but their asparagus and brussels sprouts are literally around $2+ cheaper per package than they are at Kroger, and they're just as good! They also have an ice cream product similar to Halo Top that has around 300

calories a pint and is much more affordable than Halo Top is. I am also a huge sucker for Clancy's Veggie Straws, which they always have (130 cals for 38 of them!), and they have a brand of bread that's 45 cals a slice and was pleasantly surprising as far as taste/texture.

M&S, ultimate steak burgersTwo-pack, £5, 340g

About an inch thick, its interior visibly glistening with juices, this burger looks the part. Fashionably, the mince has been given a chunky grind and is relatively loosely packed, giving it a solid but easily yielding feel in the mouth. However, its steaky flavour is far from barnstorming. The seasoning is meek and what look like (yay!) tiny white nuggets of fat are, on closer inspection, sticky bits of dried potato.

Veggie Burgers Made With Beans and Rice

The year 2020 will go down in the records for a lot of reasons. The main reason people will remember the year 2020 will be a deadly respiratory virus that affected the whole world. This C lung virus changed so many things for many people and one of them is the way people eat. Many people started eating at home more often and many had to learn how to cook. Not only did people have to learn how to cook, many had to learn how to cook with ingredients like beans and rice. Beans and rice were items that people stocked up as they panicked shopped. I remember the day that I entered the grocery store for the last time in 8 weeks to stock up on food, as my college kid was going to be living with us for a while. When I entered the store, I was not planning to stockpile, as I already had a stockpile of food, but when I saw the empty shelves, I admit I bought more than I was planning. I was thankful that most of the food I wanted was still on the shelves.

You are going to LOVE these veggie burgers! These easy to make vegan burgers are:

Super flavorful
Loaded with healthy ingredients
& Seriously tasty

Beans and rice were most peoples prepper items

I am glad that I did not need any beans and rice as the stores had none. People were hoarding all the beans and rice but not me. I always have plenty of dried beans and rice in my pantry as they are staples in my plant-based diet. I think most people were hogging all the beans and rice as they had read that they were great for long term storage or they read a blog post about the best foods to stock up on for an emergency or zombie attack. These people never thought that they had to actually eat the beans and rice. So now these food hoarders or C virus preppers have 25-pound bags of rice and uncooked beans in their pantries and have no clue how to make them taste good. I can hear the groans at dinner time: "not beans and rice again!"

Beans and rice are economical food choices. Beans and rice are also a good source of meatless protein so they are included in many vegetarian meals. Did you know that beans are loaded with fiber and lots of nutrition? When beans are combined with grains, they are a complete source of protein. When people think of meatless meals, they think of beans and rice. Here in New Mexico, beans and rice are always served at Mexico restaurants as a side dish to the main meal. So my guess is even people here are looking for bean recipes beyond refried beans or beans smothered with green chile and cheese.

How to cook dried beans

Most people who hoarded the beans probably had no clue how to cook beans and were shocked at the time it took to cook beans. Once they learned that they had to soak the beans over-night and then cook the beans for 2-hours, I bet they stopped cooking beans. Beans can be a pain to cook but once you learn some bean tips, you might cook beans more often. The best way to cook beans is in a pressure cooker as you can cook beans in about 40 minutes. Cooking beans in a pressure cooker is easy as you just rinse the beans, cover them with water, start the pressure cooker, and walk away.

Another way to cook beans is in a slow cooker. This bean cooking method takes 6 hours but it too allows you the freedom of not having to watch a pot. The basic bean cooking method used by most is the stovetop bean cooking method but this can take 2 hours or more. You also have to watch your cooking pot so it does not over-boil, so no walking away from the kitchen. My preferred bean cooking method is the pressure cooker or instant pot.

Mix all the ingredients up in a bowl

So now that you know that dried beans take a while to cook, you need to think ahead when meal planning your meals. When I cook beans, I always make a double batch of beans. I then store the extra cooked beans in my fridge or freezer for other meals. Beans freeze quite well. My bean advice is to freeze the beans in recipe size portions, like 2 cups, so you can use them in bean recipes like pressure cooker BBQ baked beans or white bean chili . You can even use the beans to make healthy Gluten-Free Chocolate Mocha Protein Brownies or vegan tuna salad . Once you discover that beans are a frugal source of protein and many bean recipes like this veggie burger recipe, you may just be stocking your freezer with cooked dried beans.

So many varieties of beans

Shape the mixture into patties

If you are new to cooking dried beans, you probably can name only a few types of beans. The most common dried beans are pinto beans, black beans, red beans or kidney beans, navy beans or white beans, and garbanzo beans, also known as chickpeas. Lately, garbanzo beans have been my favorite and I have been cooking dried garbanzo beans in a pressure cooker . I have been making so many recipes with garbanzo beans like vegan crab cakes . The beans that my family has been eating plenty of have been pinto beans and I have been making mock Chiptole beans with them as this recipe only needs a couple of spices along with dried pinto beans.

Other less known beans are calico beans or Anasazi Beans, Cannellini beans, and lima beans to name a few. I always have several types of dried and canned beans in my pantry. I love using canned black beans for tacos and canned garbanzo beans for my easy hummus recipe . Dried beans are cheaper but canned beans are convenient. This veggie burger recipe can be made with cooked dried beans or canned beans. You can also use any variety of bean in this plant-based recipe.

Dried beans to cooked beans

A rule of thumb for dried beans is 1 cup dried beans equal 3 cups cooked beans. So a pound of dried beans equals 6 cups of cooked beans. A can of beans equals about 2 cups of beans

A few simple ingredients are needed to make veggie burgers

These tasty meatless burgers are made with simple ingredients like beans and rice along with spices that you probably have in your cabinet and bread crumbs. You can use white or brown rice, depending on your preference and the bean of your choice. I like to use black or pinto beans in my veggie burger recipe. I made these burgers with white rice but I prefer brown rice as it is more nutritious. I was out of brown rice. If you don't have any rice but have quinoa, you need to make this quinoa and bean veggie burgers .

Our Capital Region Q&A feature talks to local people about their jobs, lives and the place we call home. Today&rsquos subject is Benita Zahn, whose last day at WNYT/NewsChannel 13 is May 28, after more than 41 years at the station, most as its health reporter. She concurrently spent more than a decade as the host of the &ldquoHealthLink&rdquo program on the local PBS affiliate, WMHT-TV, has a busy sideline in local theater and earned a Ph.D. in bioethics in 2014.

A Brooklyn native, Zahn graduated from SUNY Oswego in 1976 and worked in radio and TV news in Long Island and Syracuse before moving to the Capital Region in 1979. She is married to Bob Stulmaker, an education consultant who retired from the Saratoga Springs City School District after 30 years as physical education teacher, director of phys ed and director of athletics. Married for almost 22 years, they live in Saratoga County with two rescue dogs: a 3-year-old, 79-pound Lab mix named Stanley and a 13-year-old Chihuahua mix named Tiki, who, Zahn says, &ldquorules the roost.&rdquo Answers have been minimally edited for length and clarity.

Q: You&rsquore retiring from television news after about 45 years. Why now?

A: It&rsquos not 45 years. It&rsquos 41.

Q: I said &ldquofrom TV news,&rdquo not NewsChannel 13. That&rsquos 41. Overall it's 45.

A: And I&rsquom not retiring. That word is fraught.

Q: How about &ldquois moving on from TV news&rdquo?

A: Yes, &ldquomoving on from.&rdquo Thank you.

Q: You are moving on to be a certified health coach for Capital Cardiology Associates. How did that gig come about?

A: I&rsquove wanted to get myself certified as a health coach for a long time, but I&rsquove been blessed with getting lots of good theater roles. There just wasn&rsquot time. And then the pandemic hit. Other people redecorated their homes during the lockdown. I signed up to become a certified health coach.

Q: What does a certified health coach do?

A: I don&rsquot tell you what to do. It&rsquos about affirmative inquiry, about asking questions so you can paint the picture for your best life.

Q: So you&rsquore not just telling them to lose weight, eat less and make what they do eat more healthful?

A: Who doesn&rsquot already know if they need to lose some weight? Nobody wants to be told that, but if I can help them find a way to do it on terms that work in their life, they get it.

Q: Will you jump right into the new job, or take the summer off to sunbathe?

A: I&rsquom taking June off. I need a little break, and I still have an exam to pass for my certification.

Q: What will your workweek look like?

A: I don&rsquot know yet. I made my husband promise that he would not let me overbook myself, as I am wont to do.

Pop quiz: You&rsquore a runner. While bodies and metabolisms differ, how many calories, within 100, would a 150-pound woman burn running for 60 minutes at 6 mph?

A: That&rsquos when you use Google.

Q: That&rsquos what I did. It said 700 calories.

A: That sounds about right.

Q: Do you run with your husband, the retired athletic director?

A: No, his knees are shot. He&rsquos a former baseball catcher. But can he ever power-walk!

Q: There has been significant exodus in Capital Region TV news personalities recently. Between your longtime co-anchor Jim Kambrich leaving at the end of last year and your imminent departure, three others have left WNYT, two quitting the field entirely, and four more have resigned from other local TV news outlets. Why do you think that is?

A: Life happens.

Q: Is that a politic answer?

Q: Or just your way of saying that there were specific reasons for each person&rsquos decision, and they all coincidentally occurred within half a year?

A: Yes, I think so. Life happens.

Q: Newspaper jobs are scarce, having been slashed by 50 percent between 2008 and last year, but the number of jobs in broadcast television, while smaller overall, actually increased over the same period, by 7 percent. Would you advise a high schooler of today who&rsquos addicted to current affairs to go into journalism, particularly TV news?

A: I think you have to follow your heart. Much like health and wellness coaching, I can&rsquot tell you what to do or not to. I&rsquod tell a young person to look at the lifestyle. If you don&rsquot mind the crazy hours and being out in the cold for a live shot and every day there being the potential for something new, then go for it. This career is very well suited to people who don&rsquot sit still well.

Q: What, for you, defines outstanding journalism?

A: Telling the story as clearly as possible, and in language that&rsquos accessible to everyone.

Q: Do you have an example from your own career that meets that standard? Now is the time to toot your own horn a bit.

A: Ideally, that&rsquos the mark I aim for every day, whether it&rsquos a voiceover or a full story. I&rsquove been fortunate to be honored for my work, most recently with a New York Emmy for a story about a Korean War veteran. I believe I really hit the mark by getting out of the way and being a conduit for him to share his experiences and touch others.

Q: A number of wealthy, powerful men in top on-air positions in TV news were forced out for sexually preying on younger women in their companies, from Bill O&rsquoReilly to Charlie Rose and Matt Lauer &mdash and that was just in the past few years. You started in the business more than four decades ago. Did you ever encounter such behavior?

A: From a politician but not from a manager. I want to be very clear: I never had a news director or a superior in the business pull that nonsense. Never.

Q: How did you handle it with the politician?

A: It was 20 or maybe 30 years ago. I was so surprised by his actions that even I was left speechless. Afterward, I made sure I was never within arm&rsquos length of that man again.

Q: Would you handle it differently today?

A: I think I&rsquod say, &ldquoCome on, dude, put your hands in your pockets.&rdquo

Q: Even without harassment to deal with, women are still underrepresented in broadcast journalism, making up 43 percent of staffers and 37 percent of news directors. Do women still have a tougher time being taken seriously in TV news than men?

A: In my shop, it&rsquos many more women than men. But it&rsquos not just journalism. I don&rsquot think it matters what profession you&rsquore talking about: We are still working for equal footing.

Q: Has being in TV news disinclined you from taking certain stage roles?

A: (Laughs.) No. I was in &ldquoGypsy&rdquo!

Q: As a stripper!

A: Yes, and all the moneymakers lit up on the costume. I think the only thing I wouldn&rsquot do is go buck naked onstage. I don&rsquot think anyone wants to see me buck naked anyway.

Q: As Gypsy Rose Lee said, the appeal wasn&rsquot in having it all off, it was the tantalization of taking most of it off in a seductive way.

The BEST Keto Veggie Burger—Low in Carbs, But Not in Flavor!

In a large non-stick skillet, warm olive oil over medium heat. Add onions, garlic, and celery. Saute for 2 minutes, or until onions begin to soften. Add mushrooms and riced cauliflower. Stirring as needed, cook for an additional 10-12 minutes to remove unwanted moisture from the veggies. (If the veggies begin to brown, the excess moisture has likely been cooked out.) Remove the pan from heat.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

To the warm veggie mixture, add tamari, salt, parsley, paprika, cumin, and garlic powder. Stir to combine. Add the shredded cheese and mix until the cheese has melted and is fully incorporated. Next, add the flax meal and chia seeds. Stir until thoroughly combined. Set aside to cool and thicken.

Prepare a baking sheet by either greasing it very well or use my preferred method and line it with parchment paper. (As noted in the tips, silicone mats are not recommended). Once the mixture has cooled enough to easily touch (about 5-10 minutes) form the dough into 6 patties. The mixture will be sticky and should come together easily. I recommend oiling your hands to help with sticking. If your dough wants to fall apart, you may need to add another tablespoon (or more) of flax meal and leave it to thicken a bit longer before forming patties.

Bake veggie burgers for 30 minutes or longer (oven temps may vary). Patties are done when they are nicely browned with a crispy exterior. Allow to cool for a minimum of 5 minutes before serving. Patties will harden/thicken as they cool. Enjoy!
