Really good burgers, the thyme and sunflower seeds give them a unique flavor. I had a hard time getting them to hold together. I think I might try adding a little flour and fresh garlic next time and also make the patties a smaller. Thanks for posting the recipe.

This was my first home made veggie burger, it was very good. I used Worcestershire sauce in place of soy to give it a more familiar taste. They held together well and the scoop and smash tip worked awesome. I can wait to make again.

These were very good. The first veggie burger I made that I can actually say that about! For some reason, they typically don't turn out for me but this one was a success. I made a couple changes due to what I had on hand- white rice instead of brown (due to arsenic concerns), dried parsley instead of fresh, and liquid aminos in place of the soy sauce. I made sure to dry the carrot before adding it and these held up well when flipped. Thanks for sharing! I also plan on making a bunch to freeze as prep time was too intensive to go through every time (I have a house full of crazy kids, so time is tight!).
