    This is from a great book called Vegetarian Planet. You may think "Apples? In a burger?" But they are a great mixture of tart, sweet, and savory. Hope you enjoy!

      Yummy burgers! Great when just cooked and equally enjoyable next day at room temperature in a ciabatta roll with salad and tzatziki. Because this recipe is so very low in fats, so I'll certainly be making these again, particularly for take-to-work lunches. A couple of years ago, although I had several times made soups which contained either apple or pear and had certainly come across apple in latkes, I don't remember including them in burgers. In the last six months or so, however, influenced by several Zaar recipes, I have increasingly been adding Granny Smith apples to mashed potato, omelettes, quiches, meatballs, including in two recently posted recipes: Lamb and Honey Meatballs and Ham, Cheese and Mushroom Quiche. And as flower7 stated, apples do add both moisture and great flavour. Rather than removing the excess juice when making these, I simply added more breadcrumbs to soak up the great-tasting juice. I made these pretty much to the recipe, although I reduced the ginger and added some minced garlic (personal taste preferences) and some fresh basil. I also used roasted red pepper as I was concerned raw pepper much as I love it in a salad would still be raw after only a couple of minutes cooking, and in a burger, I don't like any of the ingredients to be still raw. Thanks for sharing this great recipe, flower! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.

      These were great! They are so satisfying. I used an extra egg to get them to hold together better, and used green pepper. I followed everything else exactly. I served them with Thai chili sauce. These make a fabulous vegetarian meal. Thank you!
