When I threw these veggie burgers together, I admittedly didn't expect the textures & flavors to turn out as well as they did. I was beyond pleasantly surprised--these burgers are a real keeper!
My inspiration for these came from wanting to incorporate more legumes into my little one's diet. And, boy was I happy that he loved these as much as I did!
