This recipe came from a Ukrainian Cook Book. My son who is a vegetarian loved it You may also make soy balls instead of patties for a variety. I added more bread crumbs than the recipe called for. I added crumbs till the mixture no longer felt sticky. I used my blender to mash the beans. You can serve these patties without the mushroom gravy accompanied on a bun. I doubled the recipe. I made 12 good size soy patties. I'm going to make it again and next I'll try adding grated carrot, and oatmeal. I'll let you know how it turns out.
