These are excellent! I used green lentils and veggie parmesean (because I had some to use up) but otherwise followed the burger recipe exactly. My husband made up a chilie cream (we had no chili sauce) and it went really well with it. I thought they were very much like crab cakes (minus the crab of course). I was astounded at how well not only the different flavors but the different textures worked together. These were by far the best veggie burgers I have ever made.

These werent bad, but they didnt turn out as well as Id expected. I was expecting lots of flavor, but they really werent as flavorful as I thought they'd be. I had some trouble with them while cooking. I refrigerated as the recipe told me to, but they didnt seem to want to cook up nicely. Overall, they were pretty good, but for the amount of work I would probably try to make changes to adapt them to my tastes. I didnt use the chillie cream as I didnt really like the two flavors together.

WOW, I was impressed with this recipe. I halved it and didn't expect too much, but I was pleasantly surprised. I did use green lentils(I didn't have red) and used spicey mustard. I served it without a bun with the sauce which I thought complimented it perfectly. Thanks for this dare Latchy!
