Plant Based Foods at Costco – Awesome Burger by Sweet Earth
You’ve probably heard of the Beyond Burger. Maybe even the Impossible Burger. These plant based patties were designed to look and taste like meat—without actually being made from beef. They are normally sold at health food stores or select restaurants across the nation.
If you have ever wanted to try a plant-based meat patty, now’s your chance. Just recently, Sweet Earth, a health food brand, rolled out its own version named the Awesome Burger. Costco sells these in a pack of six in the frozen section. Chop up these burgers and throw them into a burrito or bowl, or throw them on the grill to make the perfect vegan or vegetarian burger.
To make it Southwestern style, top it high with hatch chiles and avocado slices. Add salsa if you want to turn up the heat. If you want a classic American burger—but plant based friendly—use a slice of non-dairy American cheese, ketchup, egg-free mayo, pickles, and sliced onions to create your burger.

Who says you can’t enjoy an acai bowl in the dead of fall and autumn? The acai bowl at Costco is one of the only plant based options in their food court right now.
