    These are fantastic. Next time I will make a big batch, cook them 1/2 way and freeze them in FoodSaver (upper-end version of the Seal-a-Meal) bags and have them for a quick dinner. Thank you for a great vegan "burger" recipe. These will be great for next summer on the grill!! - 11/9/12

  • Tasted delicious - the burgers fell apart a little. Next time I'm going to try chilling the mixture first and using a patty press. - 3/3/14
