"I love store bought veggie burgers, so I decided to experiment on my own. I don't like the patties to actually taste like meat so my recipe doesn't and I wanted veggie patties with less calories. It actually tastes more like grains and its healthy too! I make these on a regular basis and eat a patty with toasted whole wheat bread and non-fat mayo."

"The first ones I put in the oven ended up crispy on the outside, but mushy on the inside. Turns out this was because I overcooked the rice and barley; the mixture ended up too moist. The rest of them came out fine, after I added some oatmeal to thicken it. My boyfriend and I both liked these and thought they had a very nice falafel-like flavor."
"This is really good ! My 16 year old daughter made it & it came out perfect. She thought it was a little spicy, i thought it was going to get a couple shots of hot sauce ! Cheap & easy we'll make again !"
"I substituted cooked quinoa for all of the grains in this recipe, so I can't rate it as is, but I'll say that I was pleased with the result in my own case. The other changes I made were to add 1 tsp. salt (since I used fresh garbanzos, cooked and measured out...no liquid) and 1 tsp. steak seasoning and 1/2 fresh minced onion and 5 minced garlic cloves. Oh, and I cooked them in the oven at 425 for about 20 min on one side and about 10 on the other. Somehow the mix was very wet this time so I added quite a bit of ground flax and wheat germ, but I don't remember that problem the first time I made these. Next time I think I'll go ahead and try it with the recommended grains and see how it comes out."
"This is a great recipe! I served this with mayonnaise, tomato, cheese, and arugula on a homemade whole wheat bagel. Yummm! I made "The Best Potato Wedges on Here" (another recipe from this site) for fries on the side. Very good dinner! A+++"
"I also thought these were good. Mine were hard to form. Very sticky. We ate them up though. No leftovers, so I don't know how they are the next day. I would have loved to try one. I will be making these again even though I struggled a bit they were worth the effort."
"Instead of broiling these I cooked them in a pan with some cooking spray. They take a fairly long time to cook but I just did other things in the kitchen while I waited. We added some dry mustard to give it a little kick. Next time we might try a bit of horesradish. Right out of the pan these are ok. But refrigerate them overnight and heat them up and they are wonderful! We did feel that they needed condiments like mustard, but a very good veggie burger (I too don't like my veggie burgers to taste like meat). I intend to make these and refrigerate for quick lunches. Yummy!"
