    These are so good! I used sushi grade brown rice & cooked the lentils & rice with a low sodium veggie broth. Even my meat eating friends LOVE them :) I end up with almost 16 patties but they freeze well. Now I make a double or tripple batch to have lots of extras to freeze Thanks. - 4/16/08

    These were very good...But the calorie count is way off.
    It clearly say uncooked rice...which has way more calories in a cup. I posted a corrected, recipe...You may look for it.

    TY....Good recipe - 10/12/10

    These were great! I added the spices(heaping measuring spoons)to the rice and lentils as they were simmering. I carefully pulverized the quick cooking oatmeal with a hand held blender and added it to the hot lentils and rice when they were done and mixed well. Cool add fine minced onions & gr.carrot - 2/10/10

    My entire family enjoyed these burgers immensely.. We used a circular cookie cutter to get the shape. It is very ideal to freeze themas well, and cook straight from the freezer. - 10/26/07

    These things are HUGE! And good. I am the only one in our house that would even attempt to eat them. Which is fine. I love them. I noticed after sitting in the refrigerator overnight or a few hours before cooking them helped them to stay together and helped with the flavor. - 6/17/10

    These are excellent. I followed the recipe exactly and made 8 very large patties. They freeze well and reheat in the microwave without a problem. I didn't use bread or bun, just topped with 1/2 avocado (sliced), 1 Tbsp low fat sour cream and 2 Tbsp chunky salsa. Yumm! - 1/25/10

    I thought these were very good. I used shortgrain brown rice, and also added a grated green bell pepper and about 2 cups sliced mushrooms plus sesame seeds pressed into the formed patties. It makes a whole lot more than 8 servings! I will definitely make this again and again. - 2/17/08

    WOW! I made a couple changes because I was out of lentils (kidney beans) and carrots (radishes, believe it or not) and they were wonderful. Even my daughter, who HATES radishes will devour these. - 6/4/10

    Sorry, but this was not a winner at our house.
    My boys found it to be tasteless,and one did not even want to try it. I found it to be interesting, but not very tasty.
    I used a burger press to make the burgers, but still found they did not stay together well. Probably will not make these again. - 4/16/10

    As others have noted, the calories on these is completely inaccurate. With that said, I'm fairly convinced these are the perfect food. Endlessly modifiable, there is always a batch in my freezer. I bake them to keep them together better but the key is in smashing up the rice so it binds well. - 1/28/12

    I made these for the first time today.Cooked the lentils&rice for only 30 minutes.When I started mixing the ingredients (I used oatbran instead of oatmeal) I was initially worried that they would not stick but after I used the potato masher and then my hands to form the patties was fine.8 good size - 5/3/10

    In response to some other comments, this seems pretty true to the nutrition values stated. I did a remake of the recipe, adding spices & 1 Tbs of olive oil (to help bind it together and add healthy fat). Produced 10 patties--at about 157 calories each. So, pretty close, and versatile, too.

    Great recipe, but I thought they needed A LOT more seasoning. I made them as is to keep the sodium down, but really wish I had added some extra spices and salt. Had no other problem with them and boy were they a hearty meal! - 7/18/10

    Not bad for vegan! I added all ingredients to the still warm R&L mix. Had no problem with not holding together. Added a really spicy mixture I got in Italy, along with chili powder and cumin. Had it on an Arnold's sandwich thin with Tzatziki sauce. Glad it freezes well! - 6/24/10

    The first time around they turned out great. I did add more seasoning to them, though. But after I took some out of the freezer for the second time around they came out very soft and could barely keep together. Another good point is that me and my boyfriend will probably get 4 meals out of them! - 6/15/08

    Wow- much better than I thought a non-meat burger would taste! I used some overcooked (mushy) brown rice. I cooked the lentils with a beef boullion cube, drained, and then mixed in rice and other ingredients. I used a Tb of lower-salt seasoning salt and a TB of Mrs. Dash. Bake at 400. Made 10! - 1/29/12

    This is one of my all timefavorites! My husband the carnivore loves them, as do I! I substitute a chile/salt/limon seasoning for the other seasonings called for, which assds some spice, and sometimes I chop cilantro into the mixture, too. I always end up with 9 instead of 8. - 7/15/10

    This was ok, but I could not taste any of the seasonings. The only thing that I could taste besides the lentils and rice were the carrots. - 9/12/07
