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!

These delightful vegetarian patties are chock full of protein & fiber, hold together & cook incredibly well, and truly taste great just about any way you choose to eat them!
