Recipe by huggamom

I got this recipe from If you haven't checked it out yet, it's a GREAT vegan website. These crispy cakes are a perfect substitue for a burger. In a pita with this sauce, lettuce, tomato, and cucumber, you've got yourself a great Mediterranean meal. Enjoy!

Due to my many allergies, I left out the onion, red pepper, celery, parsley, tahini, and substituted 1 tsp mustard powder for the dijon mustard. I also added a little bit of salt and pepper to try to add a little bit of flavour. Despite the many changes, these were still the best veggie patties i have EVER had! SO good that I've had them for dinner for the past 4 days in a row. I can only imagine how good they would be with all of the other flavours that are supposed to be in there. A definite keeper!!!
