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

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.
