Chef's Notes

If for some reason the batter is a soupy texture, add more bread crumbs or cornmeal, 1 tablespoon at a time, until a thicker batter forms.


  1. I thought these were wonderful! The plantain adds a bit of sweet to it which I really enjoyed. I have to admit that I had to make some changes: I didn't have any mushrooms so I used black beans as a substitute. I also added some cumin because I love it! Great recipe thanks!
  2. Didn't meet my family's or my expectations. I know it's a veggie burger but it was a little too different in both taste and texture. To help the texture I recommend finely chopping the mushrooms and olives separately and then mixing them into the other items that have been blended/processed. Adding an egg should help - Read more ...
  3. This was a nice change from usual veggie burgers. They are a bit sweet so I topped these with some buffalo sauce. I think next time I might add a few black beans and some cayenne or chipotle to the mix
