"how big is a small zucchini, potato, carrot? TIP:add the eggs one at a time so that you don't need to add a binder.

my finished product was way off the original only because a) i was expecting burgers not something like potato pancakes ,my own fault for not reading the recipe thoroughly and b) i had every intention of adding tvp to add protein. c)this recipe needs garlic, salt, lawrys etc.
this is probably the best potato pancake recipe i have ever found and because of the added veggies it isnt so carb dense"
