"My son and I made this tonight. My son got the idea of saut?ing kale and carrot greens and topping the burgers with them. Excellent idea!"

"I have just recently became a vegetarian and this was one of the first recipes I tried. I added red pepper flakes and a dash of hot sauce and these were delicious!"

"I highly recommend using tomato paste instead of sauce and add green peppers after you cook the onions. Makes a world of difference."

"Wow! I love this! I don't really remember what meat-atarian sloppy joes taste like, but I'm SURE this is better. We also used home made tomato sauce. Mmmmm..."
