  • I made it without rice also, and baked in the oven on baking-paper, not deep-fryed - 12/29/07

  • This recipe is great- so much cheaper and healthier than buying veggie burgers! The burgers turn out thick and are good to put in hamburger buns. I am going to try out some different veggies/seasoning combinations too. Thanks for sharing! - 11/12/07
