    I love Money's Gardenburgers and the ingredients in this are similar. But Money's has only 100 calories per patty and 3 grams of fat. These are way way higher. I am going to make these anyway but omit the butter and some of the cheese, and perhaps one of the eggs. I don't see why you would need 2 eggs to hold these together.

    I haven't tried this recipe, yet, but it looks just like the Money's Garden Burgers that I love, love, love! I'm looking forward to trying it soon.

    These just did not turn out for me for some reason. We didn't care for the texture or the flavor, most likely just because of our own personal prefference.

    Amazing! I used white rice to save time. They would have been even better with brown rice. I also had to substitue one small yellow onion (grated) for the green onion. These are way better than anything you can buy at the grocery store. They froze really well too.

    I cannot rate this yet, but since joining Zaar I've been looking around for other options for feeding myself and my fiancee. We are the meat and potatoes kind of people and I've been trying to find ways to eat healthier. These burgers look excellent! *Update 7/3/08* I doubled the recipe and made them tonight. They were very good and this is coming from a meat eater. I couldn't quite sell DH2B on them but that means more for me!! :) The only thing I changed was to sub unsalted cashews for the walnuts because i'm allergic to them. Thanks! I'll be making this for myself again!

    We loved these. They had very mild flavor and the texture was perfect. I used sour cream instead of cottage cheese with no issue, as well as pecans instead of walnuts. Fabulous veggie burger.


Hi! I live in a little Victorian seaport on the Olympic peninsula with my husband, 11 year old son, a cat and two frogs. Before my son was born my husband and I traveled around the country in a motorhome, so you could name lots of places and I'll say "I've been there". Never traveled overseas, though, I'm terrified of flying. My husband is a guitarist, and that doesn't pay so well, so we're always on a budget. Please tip your local musician. ;o) He does get fed, though, at some very fancy restaurants where he plays.
