No meat, awesome! Love burgers but I have a digestive issue and can't have beef, mind you I still indulge once in awhile and suffer. Look forward to trying these out, and I can just make for me and no one will know the difference, it saves the questions sometimes. Thanks

Welcome WLT - I hope you enjoy these burgers, they are delicious.
Check out my recipe collections for more veg recipes, and there are chicken patties in the chicken recipe collection, too. When you make up these burgers, try mixing some beef in for the rest of the family. That will stretch the meat, and be healthier for everyone. Just make sure you remember which are yours!
