These do not taste like hamburgers, but they are so good! I made them for my family many years ago when I first became a vegetarian. At that time there were no prepared veggie burgers on the market. --Julie Ferron

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 24, 2012

Yuck... these really weren't good at all, and had a strange texture. I think I'll be sticking with black bean burgers.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 30, 2011

The taste was good, but the mixture turned out dry...had difficult keeping together when cooking. Will try again but make a few changes to try and make a moister mixture. Any suggestions from cooks out there?

Tastes OK, texture is not good, does not taste like you would expect a veggie burger to taste. Will not make this recipe again.
