"We really enjoyed these. To be completely truthful, my husband made them, but we all enjoyed eating them! We used mushrooms instead of celery and crushed fat free saltines for the bread crumbs. We doubled the recipe yet still made 4 burgers, therefore making 4 point WW burgers. However, these turned out a little bigger then we wanted. Doubling the recipe and making 6 burgers would probably have been perfect. Because we were pressed for time we stuck them in the freezer instead of the fridge to set. We were worried that they would not hold together, but they were ok. A tad crumbly, but not bad at all. We cooked them on an electric griddle and therefore avoided using some of the oil. While these had good flavor to go along with the great texture, we felt like they would benefit from some seasoning. Our current favorite is the Penzey's spice "Bavarian mix" but the possibilities are endless here. A little cumin would be nice, or any number of spice blends. Thanks for a great vegetarian casual meal."
"These are pretty good...I like that there are several different vegetables in it!"
"My wife and I, both loved these veggie burgers, we worked together on preparing them, and it was all worth it. We have try many different kinds of recipes for the pertect 'Veggie Burger'. This is surely the one, give it a try and you will not be disappointed! Grant S."
"These were really good - much better than the last recipe I tried. They were a little bland for me, but that was probably because of the veggies I used. I didn't have green pepper or celery on hand, so I used mushroom & spinach instead. I served them with some tofu ketchup and ate two. I'm looking forward to leftovers for lunch. Yum."
"Not a vegan, jsut wanted to try these cause I like good food. This was awesome."
"This was quite easy to make, and overall a decent flavor. Thanks for the recipe!"
"You can really taste the veggies in these veggie burgers! I grated the carrot and used a mini food processor to mince the others. Even though I chilled them for an hour, they barely held together through the frying process. DH and I both liked the flavor, but thought it needed a little something. I put dijon mustard on mine and he put ranch dressing on his. We both enjoyed them - Thanks for posting this healthy recipe!"
"You did it! You got my toddler to eat...and love...veggies! I just called them burgers and she ate them without a second thought. If anyone wants to try this for their kids, I have a couple of suggestions. Grate the carrots (I actually used a jar of baby food carrots)to get them small. Then I minced the onions, bell peppers and celery so she couldn't pick the veggies out. I also added grated zucchini and a jar of baby food squash. Also, the patties are a little sticky. I just made sure my hands were wet when forming the patties and that worked. I also added a little more bread crumbs to cut down on the sticky-ness. Thanks for this wonderful recipe!"
"I made this recipe for me and hubby who are trying to eat healthier. WOW!!! It was soooo goood. I added mushrooms, red pepper, and a little jalapeno, I can not believe hubby liked these so much, as he is a die hard meat eater. Will definately make again."
"Excellent recipe! I have also made them without precooking the veggies and like them better that way .. thanks"
