      I didn't expect it to be so good! Instead of peas and zucchini I used swiss chard - probably a little over a cup. Left the skins on the sweet potatos too. Made my own chili reduction sauce with red thai curry paste, rice vinegar, maracchino cherry syrup, soy sauce, and lemon juice. Excellent on a little bed of mixed greens! Thanks!

      These were very good. I followed the recipe to a T but found the patties came out wet while forming, and had to add significantly more breadcrumbs to hold them together in the pan. Once the right consistancy was acheived, they browned up nicely, and i found the outer browned bits to be the tastiest! They got darker and darker as I went, as I love a crispy coating. The flavor was good, but I did feel it needed something else - some minced onion? another clove of garlic? I ended up really hitting it with the sea salt and adding some lemon rind which brightened it up beautifully. I would suggest this or squeezing fresh lemon on them before serving, as the recipe suggests. Very good overall though, and I wil make again and tinker with. Wonderful to have on hand when Veggie friends are visiting! Thanks Stardusannie for a new and unique recipe!

      Absolutely delicious, Annie. Dh loaded on so much chili sauce, he didn't have a clue what he was eating-and I didn't tell him. He thinks he had meat for dinner. I made half a recipe for the two of us and that seemed about right. I used brown basmati and followed the recipe, changing nothing. I may make the entire recipe next time in order to have some for lunches the next day. Dh seemed to think he wanted to try it as a burger. In that case I'll just make the patties larger.
