These looked really good to me, but my husband thought they sounded strange. By sighting the 5 star rating, I was able to convince him to try them. On flavor, I would give them a 5 stars, however, when I made them, they were very wet and soft, and did not hold their shape very well, even after chilling for 2 hours (quadruple the recommended chill time). I am trying them again, but I've added an egg, and 2/3 cups of bread crumbs. Already they seem much firmer. They are chilling now. I will try to remember to let all know how they turn out this way. EDIT - adding an egg and 2/3 cup of bread crumbs did the trick. Now these hold their shape quite well, and I have increased my previous 4 start rating to 5 stars!


These were easy to make and they tasted okay. They are a little bland, which surprised me with spices such as nutmeg and ginger involved. Sure, the simply solution to that is to add more spices, right? They are easy enough.


These were good and very easy to make. The recipe is good as is or is very easy to change up as well. I made it the first time following the directions but adding a little bit of liquid egg whites. The second time since I didn't have onions, I sauteed crimini mushrooms, garlic and a bunch of baby spinach and threw that in the mix. I used less garbanzo beans (bc i was short) and a little more pumpkin. It was great this way as well (i preferred more due to my tastes). so have fun with the recipe and be creative.
