This is an excellent recipe, thanks Sharon! It appealed to us because of the high nut content, and the rice, and I thought it was much nicer than a bean burger. I found they held together fine and freeze well, so altho' they took a little while to make, we can get the next batch out of the freezer. We had to cut down on the tamari- too much!
