    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
    These burgers were so amazing so quick and easy to do and I think each time I make them it'll just be quicker and quicker my husband love them and we can't wait to meet them again!! I substituted the Cajun for paprika and the flax for linseed still worked fine! Xx

    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

    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
