Vegetarian Burgers

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

    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.
