This recipe makes 12 veggie burgers, which can be frozen. This fact does make the effort almost worth it, because these burgers were some of the best veggie burgers I've ever had. I used to be a vegetarian, and I have tried a lot in my day.
This recipe calls for a lot of ingredients: mushrooms, bulgar, leeks, onions, celery, lentils, panko and more. Luckily I had everything except the mushrooms. I used about half the called for mushrooms, because I am not a big mushroom fan, but you don't notice them at all, so I would probably use the full amount next time.
