I want to take several weeks and make veggie burgers every night. There are so many different recipes out there! So I guess you can look forward to continuing reviews. Yea!
Okay, this one comes from Oh She Glows. They had several specific wants for their perfect veggie burger, and this is what they came up with.
I really liked it, my husband didn't. I think it had great flavor, but the texture is seedy. That's fine with me, and as long as you're prepared for that, then you'll be good. I did have the advantage that I knew what I was making and so expected it to be seedy. It was amazing broken up on a salad the next day and would encourage you to make them just for that!
