      I am not going to rate this recipe because I wasn't able to finish it for various reasons. I did want to add some suggestion. First, unless you have a super blender, definitely (sp) use a food proccesor to make this recipe. Second, the tahini must be what makes this dish because without it was very bland. Third, my "burgers" stuck to the tinfoil, maybe cooking spray would help?
