This is much better and more filling than the veggie burgers you buy at the health food store. (And lower in fat too). I actually used 1/2 cup of chickpeas and 1/2 cup of black beans. But that was the only difference. All you vegetarians out there, this should be a staple if your cookbook!
I had leftover brown rice and decided it was time to try these. Made them exactly as written, even found Pepperidge Farm cornbread stuffing. I threw my Quaker old-fashioned oats in the food processor to make the mixture blend well. Soy sauce added just enough flavor. Very tasty on wheat buns with lettuce, tomato, onion.
These were really good. I did not use the oats as I only had steel cut on hand and I wasnt sure how that would be. I also did not have stuffing mix so I used garlic flavored croutons and a packet of onion soup mix to season. I also added a couple pinches of crushed red pepper for some spice. I would love to try these with different types of beans. As it is, I tripled the recipe and put some in the freezer for quick lunches later. =) Thanks for sharing!
These were amazing - very tasty with a nutty, crunchy texture. I added in grated carrot, mushroom and spring onions, plus added in herbs from my garden including oregano and basil, salt & pepper.
These would also be lovely with a nice garden salad on the side without having the bread roll as they are quite filling on their own. I would like to try and bake or grill (broil) them next time to avoid shallow frying to ensure the recipe is as healthy and fat free as possible.
I just received the recipe in my inbox and was excited to try them and I happened to have all the ingredients on hand and decided to make it for lunch! I used Bush's vegetarian baked beans, however, I completely forgot about adding in the oatmeal...they were still amazing! The next time I make them I'll be sure to had the oatmeal!!
I weighed out the mixture once it was completed and divided evenly into 5 patties....I had mine with ff cheese slice and honey mustard...they are fantastic!!
This is an incredible recipe! The vegetarians and meat eaters in our house all love this. Very filling and so easy. Also for a veggie burger, pretty inexpensive to make. I love that its only a few ingredients. Even better warmed up the next day. Today I am making a batch for the freezer.
I really wanted to make this recipe but I didn't have oats or cornbread stuffing on hand. I just used a mixture of bread crumbs and cornflake crumbs. I think I might add some red pepper flakes next time for a little kick but my husband enjoyed them as is. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Always looking for a good veggie burger as we are trying to cut back on meat. I used "Mushrooms and Onions Toppers" and it was a nice combination.
I've had better. I would imagine that Mim Bobeck's idea of blackbeans and chickpeas would be better. Adding more spice will make them better too. For those that do not use canned beans, be sre to use as much water as would be in a can of beans. I found that about a cup of water was good. Definitely edible though.
I'm happy to have found this recipe. I was skeptical but it is very good as written. I'm anxious to try variations of th basic recipe.
these are so amazing - i used flavored stuffing as well with the bush's vegetarian baked beans -- they were amazing -- definitely a keeper and i have been turning my friends on to them -- very flavorful as they are -- thanks for sharing
