    Geema's Note:

    I love the rich, nutty flavor of these delicious burgers. I don't think of them as an alternative to meat, but a tasty patty standing on it's own merits. It's delicious served with a creamy, mushroom sauce.

      This taste of these was good, reminded me of falafel actually. I was expecting more texture though! Maybe next time I would cook my lentils to a "not quite done" phase rather then soft. I'll give them credit for staying together PRETTY WELL, they were a little on the delicate side, but they didn't crumble. I got 6 patties from this. Used a vegan egg sub (1 heaping tbsp chickpea flour 2 tbsp water) That was my only change though.

      I loved the texture of these burgers (I used whole brown lentils after reading fluffernutter's review). However they were a bit too salty for me. I will definitely make them again but with half the salt.
