Cashew & Lentil Curried Burgers

Posted on

Anyone into veggie burgers? Do you like coming up with new veggie burger creations? I get so excited when I made a veggie burger that stays together, tastes yummy, and has the right consistency and texture when eating. Those three things are the most important to me when making vegetable burgers. When I made these cashew curried burgers, I could tell they would be a hit as soon as I starting forming them into patties. There was something about the texture of them, at that point, that I knew success was in my future for veggie-burger-making

What is your favorite mixture of veggie burger ingredients?
