These are a nice change from the usual storebought veggie burgers. The chickpeas, veggies, and cheese (or soy cheese in my case) gave these a delicious flavor. I did use the veggies suggested, omitting the leek. I also used Egg Beaters in place of the eggs and bread crumbs in place of the wheat germ. I cooked them in Pam instead of the 3 Tbsp oil to lighten things up a bit. I had some trouble getting these to be a "burger"-like consistency, as they were quite mushy, but they were much better after I added some extra breadcrumbs. Overall they were very tasty, and I plan to play around with them again soon!
