      this was the first veggie burger recipe i tried and they were delicious! even my very picky brothers though they were good :) we used everything the recipe calls for plus some ground cumin, garlic salt and a little bit of Worcestershire sauce to taste. served on toasted buns with lettuce and tomato and mozzarella cheese melted on top of the patty! yum! cant wait to make them again.

      My daughter is a vegetarian so I am always looking for great veggie recipes and this is definitely a keeper. The burgers are very tasty. We chilled the burgers before frying and they held their shape and didn't break apart. Thanks for posting.

      Though I liked the taste of these pretty well, my family found them a bit bland and the texture a little too soft. I ended up making a couple changes others might find helpful: i added about 3/4 c. of whole oats to firm up the texture a bit. i also added some bbq sauce and some worchestershire sauce but not so much as to end up with the same texture issue. after my changes i tried baking a patty in the oven on 375. i flipped it a couple times and had a pretty nice result--crispy on the outside and not too crumbly. overall, this is a good starting point for a homemade veg. burger. thanks!
