I made the recipe as written, and it was my first time making any kind of veggie burger. To be open-minded, you really need to disregard your experiences with out-of-the-box products that have more complex texture, such as a well-shaped patty with a slight crunch on the outside. This recipe wasn't intended for that. The flavor reminded me of my homemade black bean soup, which I make by following the recipe on the back on the Bush's can. Ingredients are similar. I used the grating disc on my food processor to handle the pepper and onion, and used a garlic press for the garlic. I tried to avoid having large chunks of any particular ingredient. This worked well. Also, I continued adding bread crumbs (panko was all I had on hand) until the mixture seemed appropriate for shaping patties. I probably ended up with twice the recommended amount. During cooking, the patties were mushy, but surprisingly they didn't fall apart when I flipped them. I cooked them longer than recommended until the patties were golden on top. They were definitely worth making again, although next time I might try skillet cooking them in a little butter to see if this adds some richness to the flavor. It needs a little something more, but I haven't figured out what yet.
