This was quite good. I described it as a very mild flavored burger with a nice nuttiness from the carrot and beans. I didn't have seasoned bread crumbs (it doesn't seem like they sell them where I'm at - in Australia), so I just used non-seasoned ones. Also, I didn't have Italian salad dressing, so I subbed in an equivalent volume of olive oil with dried Italian herbs and red wine vinegar. The flavor was nice, so this works. In terms of consistency, I found that making it as directed was a bit on the dry side for me. In my second batch, I added 3 tablespoons of olive oil which made a world of difference. The burgers become a lot more moist and tastier. Also in my second batch, I completely mashed up the chickpeas as I found the whole beans were a bit on the crunchy side for me. All in all, very nice recipe, thanks heaps!

Really good. I didn't have enough chickpeas so I mixed in red beans. I also put everything in a robot mixer. The mixture was moist and the burgers were easy to cook. My children of 3 and 5 years old ate their whole burger, and this surprised me cause when I make beef burgers they hardly eat half.

I wish I could give this more stars! These were great! I made just a couple sub's; omitted Italian dressing and added about a teaspoon of Greek seasoning, omitted the bread crumbs and used about a half cup of oat flour. I was a bit worried when it was all mixed that they wouldn't hold together, but they did so beautifully! This recipe made 5 perfect sized "burgers". Next time I will serve it with Basic Tahini Sauce #84654. Thanks, Dragonshoes!!!!!

Made these for my vegan sister-in-law when the rest of the group was eating hamburgers. She loved them.

This was a really good quick veggie burger. I followed the recipe, but did add hot sauce to the mixture. It was not dry and it stayed together very nicely. We had it for breakfast with an egg on top. My husband enjoyed it too, so that's always a plus. It made 4 patties for us.

My husband and I really enjoyed these! I omitted the salad dressing and added 2 Tbsp of Tahini, and about 1 Tbsp of Wheat Germ. I think next time I will add the salad dressing as well, for a bit more flavor. Delicious, thanks so much!
