      Five stars for the taste. We are cumin freaks and I love chickpeas, so I knew this was going to be a winner. I also baked them as they were a tad fragile and I thought they would break if I tried to pan fry them. I would make them again. Thanks for posting. Made for the Dec 08 veggie swap.

      These were very good. I really like the spices used in this healthy burger. I used brown rice and chose to broil them. One thing I found was that this recipe made 6 large burgers. Next time I will make them into smaller patties and make 8 of them. Also, some of them fell apart a little bit. But, the taste was still great! I love that there is no egg in this burger recipe. Thanks for sharing!
