Something else. I'm going to give this four stars, because this recipe prepared as a burger didn't impress me much, and I would have given it maybe one star, but I used the leftover mix (I didn't want to waste it) as a base for vegetarian wontons and it was FABULOUS. I added some onion, carrots, oyster sauce, ginger and a little flour and it made a wonderful filling. I took them to work and NOT ONE PERSON could tell they were meat free, and they were begging me for the recipe. - 24 Jul 2008
When I first made this recipe I didn't like it. I grilled the first burger and found it very dry and flavourless when cooked this way. I shaped the rest of the mixture into burgers, wrapped individually and froze them. The next time I made them I took one of these frozen burgers and fried it in olive oil. Frying it seemed to bring out the flavours much better. I ate it in a bun with lettuce, tomatoe, cheese and ketchup and it was delicious. The burgers have become a favourite of mine as it only takes ten minutes to take one out of the freezer and prepare a burger as a quick snack. I love them now. - 20 Feb 2010
