These were delicious! I made mine much flatter then the ones in the picture, but they turned out great.  They have a great flavor and make a great alternative to the store bought meat substitutes.


I made these burgers for dinner tonight w/a side of the "Spicy fries" recipe also on this site. I used green pepper instead of red because I just happened to have it on hand. I baked the burgers according to the recipe. I topped my 2 burgers w/broccoli sprouts and mild salsa. My husband put sprouts and ketchup & mustard on his. I think that they were a little smushy in the middle, but my husband said they were perfect. Maybe next time I won't make them so thick.


These turned out great. We baked them and then grilled them on our George Foreman grill. Next time, I'd only use a little cilantro -- I think the taste was a little too overpowering. Otherwise, delicious and really nice texture.
