    I have made these a bunch of times but I am still having trouble getting the mixture to stick together. This is one of our favorite meals. I have tried making the patties smaller and it seems to help. Next time I may try using the food processor to blend everything up. Does anyone else have any suggestions?

      I would suggest adding flour if you're not avoiding wheat/gluten. It made a huge difference for me.

    Made two of these with the recipe as stated and they fell apart. Added 2 or so tablespoons of flour to the last part of the batch and they held together nicely. Flavorful, though.

    Just made this recipe and it is fabulous. I had trouble getting mine to stick together but think it was my error. I will make these again even if we have to eat them with a spoon. The flavor it great. I didn't think they would be so good because there is not much in them. Boy was I wrong. My husband LOVED them. We topped them with spicy brown mustard, red onion, cherry tomatoes and avocado and served on lettuce. This will be a staple in our weekly menu.

    Just wondering about the nutritional info for this recipe. It looks amazing and I am going to try it. But I am calculating everything and could use some info. THX!

    These are great! I struggled a little to puree the peas/rice but I guess it's a good workout. I made 4 and froze 2. I can wait to have nothing at home and have to thaw one and eat it! I had my first one only with an avocado and I'm glad I had the avo because it was a little dry otherwise. The next day, I had it with 1/2 roasted red pepper, some mixed salad and a dressing with garlic, olive oil, grated ginger and lemon juice. One of the lunches at work that I enjoyed the most in a very long time!

    These have easily become a favorite and "go-to" for me. They are best after they have just been fried, but I make a batch ahead of time and reheat them in the microwave for lunch in the office. I have also found that a couple slices of avocado really round out the flavor!

    These were incredible! My boyfriend (who is totally a meat guy) even gobbled them right up! They were also really yummy the next day heated up in the oven for a few minutes.

    These are amazing! I wish I'd used a food processor because the chickpeas and rice were kind of difficult to mash together, but overall the recipe wasn't too difficult to prepare and the burgers were delicious. I will make these again!

    Suprisingly tasty! I followed some of the suggestions and used a food processor and also added a sprinkle of cumin. I wasn't so much worried about the oil. It's a small amount and olive oil is a GOOD fat as long as you don't overindulge.
