First time I ever made or tasted veggie burgers. I made them for a vegetarian friend, who was visiting. She said it was the best veggie burger that she had ever eaten. I made them almost like the recipe call for except I added 2 small carrots finely grated and i/2 a red pepper and 1/2 an orange pepper, and I used olive oil instead of canola. Thanks for the excellent recipe. My daughter and I also thought that they were excellent. She grilled them.

I used a can of Amy's black refired beans replaced the bread crumbs with oats and the flour with cornmeal to make it gluten free. For the cheese, I used Daiya Italian, to make it dairy-free. I am not a big eater, but I ate 2 of these, so they must be good!

Cooked on a griddle and used pinto beans that I had cooked from dry. I was pleased with how well it stayed together and the flavor. It was a bit gummy, but that could be the different beans. Served w/o buns and w/ a bit more cheese on top, plus sweet potato fries and kale as sides. Thanks for a great recipe!
