both my boyfriend and i thought these were so so sooo good! i was afraid at first that the mixture was too gloppy, but i plopped it by the spoonful on the baking sheet and they came out great. i didn't have any red chilies so i used a few pinches of crushed chili flakes. also, i made the patties early in the day and just let them sit. hours later i warmed them on our george foreman grill. this is a super easy and yummy recipe that we'll definitely make again and again.


These were good - but you need to add and egg and some bread crumbs or oatmeal as a binder. We liked them a lot - I made the patties into rectangles because my wraps are rectangular shape. I spread some chummus on the wrap, placed the garbanzo bean burgers on top and added some slaw and some spinach leaves. It was really good - but I prefer the Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers from this site. This is a nice variation.


Very easy and good! I added diced white onion to the mix as well as cumin and garlic salt. I added just a very little olive oil, but maybe I should have put in a bit more because the patties fell apart easily.
