    Really tasty. Even my husband liked them. The partly smashed beans gave them a better texture than most veg burgers and the sweet potatoes really adds flavour.

    Terrible. Disgusting tasted like spicy mushy mush.

    Great recipe! I had some doubts while preparing it but it came out delicious. Put it on a whole grain bun with some crumbled feta. Wanted it to be crispier but that could be my fault when frying?

    Not as sturdy as I would have liked, had to bake for a while after frying. They didn't get crispy but flavor was good, also added sauted mushrooms with garlic.

    Tasted really good, however a little soft so difficult to flip over but didn't miss the meat and it was filling.

    Delicious! A little bit on the dry side, but topped with some mayo and lettuce and it's a winner 💪

    Doubled down on the spices - hot curry, sweet curry, and regular curry, and these turned out great!

    Awesome and delicious. Made more and made my own cajun mix as I didnt have any. Added additional garlic because dried garlic becomes one big sticky ball where I live, so no garlic in my cajun mix.

    Delicious. Good amount of flavour. My 2 year old liked it. I used Cannellini beans as I didn’t have black beans

    great recipe. we used sugar beans instead of black beans and it turned out amazingly. Im not a vegetarian and i would choose this over a meat patty every single time

    Loved it! I switched the black beans for kidney beans, and used bagels and even meat eaters loved it!

    Good. I would divide mixture into 6 not 4 burgers as they are too big and cool burgers for longer as they were a bit raw

    Really yummy option! So pleased with how these turned out. They are easy to make and you could throw in other spices if you wanted a different flavour. Because all of the ingredients are cooked before you bake or fry the patty, you could also use the mixture as a filling in a burrito; my family and i thought it tasted quite mexican. Great with houmous! Get involved xx
