“This veggie burger is packed with veggie and quinoa goodness including lots of meatless protein. A great alternative to a beef burger and just as hearty and filling. It can be cooked on the grill or baked in the oven. The egg and cheese may be left out to make this recipe vegan.” - by Becky

"This is AMAZING! I didnt have the kidney beans so i went without. I forgot to put the dill in the patties so I mad a dill mayonnaise mixture as a dressing and threw some sliced tomato on the burger...." See more Make these-you will not be disappointed!"
"I have never tried to make veggie burgers before and I was excited to have another meatless dish to add to our dinner rotation, but I'm not sure I will try this again. The flavor is excellent, but th..." See moreere were some serious drawbacks. There is definitely a lot of prep work to chop all of the vegetables. If you have a food processor, it would save a lot of time to use that to mince everything. I also had a really difficult time getting the patties to stick together. I ended up with 11 patties, because the patties were huge if I just divided the recipe into eight. We started out putting them on the grill on tinfoil (because I was afraid they would crumble), but I ended up just transferring them to a pan and frying them in a bit of butter because they were sticking to the foil and falling apart. If I do try them again, I will add another egg to the mixture, make the patties even smaller, and just pan fry them in a bit of olive oil."
