    these were really good. i added the flax egg like another suggested, also added 1/3 cup oatmeal, because it seemed very sticky, and 1/3 cup nutritional yeast, just because, and a shot of liquid smoke. i stuffed one in a pita bread, with some vegennaise. YUM. they did want to break after i removed them from the skillet, just be careful. really good. also used floured hands to shape, that helped too.

    This is an excellent recipe, thanks Sharon! It appealed to us because of the high nut content, and the rice, and I thought it was much nicer than a bean burger. I found they held together fine and freeze well, so altho' they took a little while to make, we can get the next batch out of the freezer. We had to cut down on the tamari- too much!

    This was excellent! I'll definitely be making this again,and often. Followed the recipe as stated, only adding some liquid smoke. Instead of making burgers, I put it all into a baking dish and sprinkled the top with bread crumbs and a little bit of grated Parmesan cheese, and cooked for about 10 minutes at 350. Fabulous, and so healthy for you, too. Thank you so much for sharing!

    I LOVE these burgers. Even my meat eating husband and picky toddlers enjoyed them. They taste excellent. They are very similar to Sunshine Burgers.

    Good recipe. Because others had said the burgers weren't holding together, I added a couple of flax eggs (1 T milled flax, 3 T water each) and gave the whole mess a quick spin in the food processor. Turns out beautifully, and really sticks together well. The tahini is a little heavy, so I'll scale that back next time.
