This member is no longer an active participant at Zaar, but I was a huge fan of her recipes, so when they went up for adoption I grabbed as many as I could. Here are her original comments: "A tasty vegetarian burger. Fairly mild -- increase spices to your taste. Adapted from 'The Vegetarian Gourmet's Easy Low-Fat Favorites.'"

I thought these were excellent. I substituted mesquite A1 sauce for the ketchup, and skipped the pepper. I made 6 patties while the rice was hot and tried to leave them alone while they were frying. I didn't have any trouble with them falling apart. I will definitely make these again! Next time, I'll saute some onions and maybe some mushrooms for the top though.
