    I didn';t try this reicpe but after looking at the calories I won't. Almost 400 caloires. I can eat a veggie burger for way less calories and be completely satistifed. I can add tons of veggies and a bun for less than 300 calories. - 8/20/13

    Don't eat the Bun! Use a lettuce wrap. - 8/20/13

    Looks good but you want to lighten it? Try a Sandwich Thin at 100 cal. and 22 g. carbs instead of the recommended bun (170 cal.) and use 2 slices ultra-thin cheese Instead of the serving size of three slices to save another 40-45 cal. (Sargento packages several cheeses this way.) - 5/24/15

    The burger was pretty dry and needed extra pesto for moistness. I would not make it again because the calories outweigh the benefits. - 7/14/14
